I used a new stamp from a Hero Arts and Sizzix Stamp and Emboss set. By coloring just a portion of the stamp I make it look like a whole new stamp. I stamped the sprig of flowers onto the ivory card stock after I had colored them with markers and spritzed them with shimmery pearl colored spray. Then I stamped the whole ivory piece with Versa Mark ink and the Designer Wood grain background stamp. There is a subtle wood grain background that way. I had a leftover greeting when I made my autumn themed canvas. I added it to the card on top of my stamping.
The greeting is coated in Glossy Accents to give it a lot of shine and dimension.
Can you see the subtle wood grain? It's so hard to get a pic of the white on white.
Here is the same floral stamp. I inked the background on this plain white card with three shades of blue Distress Inks. I went lighter in the center and darker on the edges. The darkest color I used to stamp the entire floral image on the background. I ran it through the die cutting machine inside the embossing folder for dimension. I love how it turned out. It was so easy to line up and get it perfect.
More Indie Bloom paper is behind the greeting. I love this rainbow pattern!!!!
I can think of so many ways to use this stamp and embossing folder. I just love how they work together or separately. Wonderful!!
Thanks so much for stopping in to take a peek at my cards. Have a great weekend.
