WWW for Simon

Work it Wednesday for Simon is to use something new.  This little stamp set stamps so beautifully.  I received a thinking of you card from my sweet niece a while back and she and i are so on the opposite ends of the color spectrum.  It was such a beauty i wanted to see if i could recreate it with my own stash.  Not too bad…Not too bad at all.  These are brand new stamps but i don’t know who the manufacturer is.  I bought them at a rummage last summer and threw the packaging away.  They take ink beautifully and were the perfect image for this creation. 

I masked off 1 inch from top and bottom first and stenciled with distress inks.  Pulled up the mask, repositioned and drew the lines in with my T-ruler.  Pulled the masks up again and layed them over my stenciling.  Inked the sentiment with the MISTI for rich color and placement.  Then I cut one of the flower stems apart and started strategically stamping.  I used distress inks for everything but the sentiment.  That is Memento.  After finishing i used a finishing glaze to keep the colors from accidentally running if they got wet.  I am so pleased!!  i even had textured cardstock to use.  sqeee!!

  1. I like how you faked out that card to make it look layers. I like the stamping on the texture. It gives it such a neat look.
