Getting Inky!

Hi Crafters,

At a recent paper-crafting event I purchased this gorgeous 'WOW' background stamp and couldn't wait to create two cards following the demo I watched there.

Recipe (both cards)
Background Stamp - Secret Garden by WOW Stamps for Embossing
Black Embossing Powder
Distress Inks
Cheery Lynn Fronds Die
Sentiment Stamps - LOTV

Challenges I'd like to enter:
Fab n Funky - #313 Add a Sentiment
Crafty Creations - #319 CAS
Come & Get It - #126 Make Your Own Background

It's a lovely sized stamp and makes a great impression. I have lots of ideas rolling around in my head for other uses too - now to find the time to fit it all in!

Back tomorrow with my DT card for As You Like It Challenge

See you then,

Loved both versions of this wonderful background stamp. It's one I've not seen. I'm finding that I like the WOW embossing powders very much too. A very perfect sentiment as well...quite inspirational! Good job, and glad you got to enjoy a demo with this pretty background product. TFS

Wow these are just stunning. I love the second one the best. The colours just fly off the card and i love that sentiment. Hugs Mrs A.

Kat W said...

These are both utterly gorgeous and the floral stamp in black really pops against the colourful backgrounds. The quotes make brilliant focal points and a nice change from a stamped & coloured image...which just wouldn't work so well with the detailed background I think.
Big hugs, Kat xx

Erika said...
