Velveteen Stamping

Happy Weekend, Friends!  I hope yours is productive and leisurely!  Today I'm sharing a card using a technique that Shari Carroll is showing us this month as part of our challenge for March at the Hero Arts Blog.  Basically, it's stamping a background design in white, and then overstamping some designs that have an open area, enough so that the background design shows through it. Shari used "solid" flowers for her overstamping; I decided to us a big stamp with lots of open space so that the stamping behind it would show through.  The effect is kind of like stamp kissing, but different :))

Here's my card:

Velveteen Stamping

supplies:  white cardstock, Hero Arts CG125 Friends Definition, stamped in Color Box Frost White pigment ink, CG176 Butterfly Field and CL493 Live Life, stamped in Hero Arts Pool mid-tone shadow ink, Martha Stewart Monarch Butterfly punch, gem from CH213 Sea Mixed Accents

Here's a closer picture to show you the text stamping showing through the butterfly Fields image:
