Velveteen stamping

Here's another card for Hero Arts one-layer challenge.  I wanted to do the Velveteen Stamping technique again, and I think this may be my most successful try at it.  Basically you stamp an underlying pattern on the card in white ink, and then overstamp solid images in colors, and if all the planets align, the first pattern shows through the top ones, creating a fun design!  Here's my card:

HA challenge Velveteen stamping

I stamped the Winnie & Walter sentiment first on an angle, then masked the sentiment and overstamped the Hero Arts Tweed pattern in Colorbox Frost White ink, to cover the top and bottom of my card.  After allowing that to dry thoroughly, I again masked the sentiment, and stamped the flowers (Hero Arts 4 Fun Flowers and the little one from Remember) in various pool, green,  and mint inks.  We're allowed to use embellishments for this challenge, so I added just a few sparkly sequins in clear and blues.  

I'm very pleased with my results, and this will be used almost immediately, as my family has 3 birthdays in August coming up!  

I hope you'll give this technique a try if you haven't already; it's really fun to do!  Thanks for visiting today!
