Hi, today I pulled out a stamp that I have only used once before. I first used it in a Hero Arts scramble and when I took it out again to use today, I also pulled out the same background stamp. I think these two will often go hand in hand on a card.

My first card made about 4 months ago. I added stickles to some of the blossoms, and a glittery dot to the middles. I love the lattice background as a frame for this stamp.

My second card, has the stamped image, with liquid pearls in the centers and some glossy accents on the open petals. The borders are drawn on with a Spectrum Marker. Other supplies include Hero Arts mid tone ink in Butterbar (Love love love), MS Pearls, Simon Says Stamp sentiment,(but just the first line.)  The mid tone ink is so perfect for these shadow stamps. It dries with perfect coverage. 

I especially like the effect of the lattice stamp coming through on the outer edges. The lattice stamp was stamped with distress ink. I did not realize it would act as a resist to the alcohol markers.  Good to know...

Thanks for stopping,

Love these stamps together! And that Butterbar, I keep trying to talk myself OUT of buying more ink, and I just don't think it'll happen, lol!
