Wonderful Scrolls happy you dropped in!  Meet today's card.  This scroll stamp was one of the first ones I ever bought many years ago.  It still continues to be a favourite and never goes out of style.  It makes for a great focal point or stamped as a background.  I love the stamps that stand the test of time.
I began by stamping the background using Tea Dye Distress ink and sponged some extra around the edges.  Then using the same colour, I stamped the smaller flourish over the top of the background.
Next, I stamped the large scroll with Rusty Hinge Distress ink to the side, the sentiment from Mama Elephant and then splattered.  

Adding my card to these challenges:

Fabulous! I love the splatters. I wish I could splatter. I'd probably get the wall. Or the cat. Maybe even the ceiling, but definitely not the card.
