Stamp Me A Merci - Thank You
Wow, can you beleive it? I've actually done some stamping, lately. I mean actual rubber, inked up STAMPS! LOL! I know, I know, it's rare for me, lately, even though I actually own over 2,500 rubber stamps! LOL! I am so into digis now, that I really break out the rubbers. Though, I admit, everyone should use thier rubbers now and then - So I've broken mine outta thier hiding places, lately, to do a few cards. Here is the first one.
I used a background stamp, inked with Versamark champagne ink, stamped, and then embossed with Sea Foam textured embossing powder. Once the panel was embossed, I inked it with yellow and green Tim Holtz distressed stains. The butterfly is stamped with Versamark and then embossed with multiple colors of embossing powders. The flowers were originally white, and I dyed them with the distress strains. I also dyed the crochet lace trim, the same way.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
