Always

Hero Arts just started another of their challenges HERE, and we're to make one-layer cards.  I pulled out a cling flower stamp that hasn't been inked yet and here's what I made:


Using some washi tape, I masked off my edges, then stamped Old Letter Writing for my background in a grey ink.  Next came this flower from Cherish Yesterday, inked in shaded lilac distress ink and a mowed lawn distress marker.  I removed my masking and added my sentiment from the Remember set, stamped in VersaFine onyx black ink.  Very simply done, but I like the results!  

Thanks for visiting!

This is SO pretty, Lin! (I know, I end up saying that to you at least two or three times a week). I love the layered stamping.

Visiting from Hero Arts. I like the stamping with the use of masking but have yet to learn to get a large stamp to look as nice as yours.
