365 Cards Day 175 Stampin' Saturday


Oh my word! I enjoyed this one, there's something most theraputic about stamping, and I certainly stamped a lot on this. For 365 Cards, the requirement was that we layer the stamping, not masking, but overstamping!
I began with the background and stamped all over with the random dotty stamp in gold. Then I overstamped with the Hero Arts French Script in black and then added the My Mind's Eye clear border stamp, overlapping that a little to make it fit the dimensions of the paper.
The image is a silhouette or watercolour Hero Arts set stamped with black Stazon. This has also been over stamped with the dots and a tiny script clear stamp again from My Mind's Eye.
The sentiment was also fun to do, and I didn't over stamp as much as overink. I wanted to use three colours on the stamp as I fancied a pop of red on the card. So I inked the red line first, then the gold, which went over the bottom line too, so I wiped a little of that off before overinking with the black!
Done in one take!
I quite like this one, it's different! I hope you do too!
