In case you hadn't noticed, I've been submitting lots of cards to Moxie Fab World's "Fanatical about Botanical" challenge. I can't help it, these are the images that make me happy. But so far I haven't done anything that is all stamped, so that was my goal with this card. This Decorative Birds stamp from 2007 is an old favorite, and I think it fits the bill quite nicely. Everything is stamped using bundled sage distress ink - isn't it a lovely color?
supplies: white card stock, Hero Arts K4892 CardArt Decorative Birds, S5507 Envelope Pattern, versamark ink and clear embossing powder, K5354 French Post, pinkpaislee 00445 Impressions (card border), bundled sage distress ink, pale pink gems
The birds image was stamped in Versamark ink, clear embossed, and then rubbed with bundled sage distress ink. That panel was then edged with more of the same bundled sage. Then I overstamped the envelope pattern for some subtle texture, and the French script for a watermark look. The white card was stamped along the edges with the leaf motif from the pinkpaislee Impressions set before affixing the panel to it. I love the toile-like effect it gives. To finish, I added some tiny pink gemstones to the centers of the flowers.
