Just Stamping around

I just realised that I don’t do much simple stamping on my cards. Meaning I mainly colour my stamps with colour pencils, watercolours, marker pens, alcohol inks… so today I decided to make a card just by stamping inks onto it!

I used Tsukineko’s Versa Magic dew drop inks to stamp my black card as these pigment inks show so well on dark card stock. They give a beautiful chalky finish to my Hero Art stamps. As I only have 4 of their colours (for the moment), to create more nuances on afew of my petals, using my Misti, I first stamped my flower with Pixie Dust (don’t you love the name of this pink ink!), then stamped a darker pink, Momento’s Rose Bud over it.

I stamped the sentiment from Hero Arts with Versamark transparent ink and heat embossed it with Wow embossing powder. To finish, I added pearl dots with my pearl pens, let it dry and then carded it onto a lilac card base.

Well I hope you liked my simple stamped card and your comments really make my day! Thanks for stopping by.
