The Stamps Of Life. Do you remember those little spirograph machines when we were younger? I know my sisters and I sure got a kick out of creating beautiful shapes in different colors when we were little. I think they also take on a doily look in white, or snowflakes-as I was going for this look on my card! I know several people with December birthdays so I wanted it to have an icy, snowy look to it.
First, I stamped my large spiros in Versamark ink and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. To create the background I brayered and sponged several different blues. The smaller spiros, are stamped in Pacific Point and then I just stamped them without reinking to get the lighter color. The sentiment is stamped in Licorice (black). I am LOVING Stephanie's new ink pads. They are super juicy and stamp like a dream. They also dry quickly, too. You will definitely see me using these more!
I finished the card off with a MS punch border and some denim twine from The Twinery. I love my twine!
Thanks for stopping by today!
