Stamping on Text
For our last lesson in the Stretch Your Stamps class, Shari Carroll created a card stamping a reverse stamp on text from a book. I used some October Afternoon text paper and stamped my Hero Arts floral image in Baja ink. This is a great way to use those text papers and give them a little more interest. I was delighted to learn this technique as those kinds of papers often were left unused in my paper pads.
For the rest of the card, I added some fabric as trim for Two Peas CHA challenge and used several products from the Artfuldelight July kit. There are Prima flowers and a canvas butterfly. The butterfly was stamped with flourishes in Stazon brown. Then I misted with two Mister Huey mists - Cameo and Water cooler.
CHA challenges end tonight over at Two Peas. Check out the video section to see the new products. I was both happy and dismayed to find so many pretty papers I liked. (I really don't need to be buying more paper :-) Thanks for stopping by today!
