In Case You Missed It.........

Last week over at the Penny Black blog, I had 2 of my cards posted for the Take Flight Twenty Contest using the newly released background stamps that I love.  This background called Bed of Roses, has many possibilities as you could use it just as a bkg. or stamp and cut out the roses to use individually.  My card shows how to use both those methods. 

Here is my other card using the background stamp called Glory of Modesty.  I wanted to show how to use this stamp for more then just a background too.  First, I stamped the main panel with Pear Tart Memento ink.  After cleaning my stamp, I applied Versamark and white embossing powder and heated with my heat tool.  I punched a circle out from the white embossed piece, then using the green ink again and a water pen, I coloured the leaves in to give a reverse of the flowers on the background. The fresh feel of the green really makes me want for Spring!
Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Supplies:  all stamps from Penny Black/ Memento black/ embossing powder/ Copic markers/ pop dots
