Life Collage

Morning.
 Just me playing with some new stamps and I make a collage card.
I like the look of monochromatic cards and used some Memento grey ink to create that look.

I began by stamping the tape measure background from the Darkroom Door.  I think I will have fun with that stamp especially for creating the look of collage cards.  Then, I stamped the flowers from Magenta to the side using my MISTI.  Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in black but the card needed something more, so I scored a border around the outside edge to finish it off.  Much better.

Adding my card to these challenges:

Less is More- MASCULINE

Addicted to Stamps- ANYTHING GOES

Crafty Catz- ANYTHING GOES

Crafting With Friends- ANYTHING GOES


Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Supplies:  stamps- Magenta, Darkroom Door, Stampendous/ Memento bl and grey ink/ ScorPal/ MISTI

I love this look, Karen, although my screen shows it more of a real than gray. I have that sentiment stamp and never thought to mask off the bottom. Thanks for the inspiration.
