MCS Stamp Release Party Day 4

Good morning! Welcome to Day 4 of a week of sneak peeks for the new release at My Craft Spot!!! Today I made a sweet and simple card with the new Chalkboard Sentiments - Fall stamp set: 

For this card, I first made an gradient color wash on watercolor paper - making it darker at the top, and fading it with a little extra water at the bottom. Once that dried, I stamped my sentiment over the top, then filled in the empty places on the letters with a white gel pen. I thought it added just the right amount of interest to a simple card! Finished off with a bit of Natural Jute String tied in a wispy bow.

Now the fun part! Kimberly is giving away something fun each day this week for comments left on the My Craft Spot blog - here is today's giveaway:
