Crafty Details
I started this page by stamping a few girls from Girl Power onto cardstock, and accessorizing them.  I then used the ink smooshing technique with Shaded Lilac and Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxides to make a watercolor-like background. I stamped the grid from Texture Tiles 1 with Picked Raspberry and the dots with Chipped Sapphire. The words “Be the Example” are stamped with Bitty Minnie Alpha and Loop da Loop. I added a few strips of matching washi to the top and bottom of the page, along with the tab. Finally, I glued my girls to the page and added a few sentiments from Faith Wordfetti.
