Saturday Spotlight on Hidden Potential: In So Many Words!

Stamps by Prickley Pear Designs. Cardstock: Black, Elegant Eggplant, Almost Amethyst, So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, vellum. Ink: Stazon black, Versafine black, Stardust glitter pen. Accessories: Circle Nestabilities, Rectangle Nestabilities, Cuttlebug swirls embossing folder, black gems, organdy swirl ribbon.

It's time for another Saturday Spotlight on Hidden Potential challenge! I'm a big fan of sentiment stamps, and it's always fun to find new ways to make these tidbits of wisdom even more versatile.

Here's SSOHP challenge #6: You will need to use wording in some creative way, use a dictionary sheet for a background or collage, use a sentiment and stamp it repeatedly for a background or use ONLY a sentiment on your creation....use those words wisely!!

For my card, I stamped this spooky sentiment repeatedly on a vellum sheet so tidbits of it peek around the card, but don't cover the other fun elements of this Midnight Madness sketch #25:

The full sentiment is stamped below the image for your reading pleasure.

Thanks going out to Prickley Pear for generously sending the Spotlight Divas these fun stamps and many others to play with on this challenge. Special thanks also to my stamping buddy, Deb of Freckle-Face Printworks, for being an awesome Halloween embellies source; she sent me both the ribbon and black gems!

Gather up those sentiments and show us how creatively you can be In So Many Words!
