I picked up this cute Hero Arts flower stamp on eBay last week, and – unlike my usual self, which likes to let my new supplies go unused for a bit while I admire them, wonder how to use them, and then obsessively organize them first before getting any use out of them – I immediately put this one to ink.
After coloring the image with Copic markers, I added the panel to a card, which came about with help from The Paper Players’ #165 Tic-Tac-Toe challenge. I chose to work with the top row of elements: A ‘thank you’ card with ribbon and a button.
Isn’t that image a cutie?? So easy to color, and easy to make a great card. I’m pretty hesitant and careful about the wood-mounted stamps I purchase, because they really aren’t my style, overall, and I don’t want to take up my precious space with them unless I know I will love them. But sometimes, I have no choice but to make an exception, and this was one of those times.
Try as I might, I could not capture a photograph of the glitter shimmer spritzing I added to the focal panel.
Thanks for stopping by today. 😉
