Clean and Simple!


Its been a while since I had time to enter the CAS-Friday challenge but at last I have had a little free time to play with my stamps.  This weeks challenge is to use scallops, as you know I love to create shaped cards so here is a scalloped circle card using my new Etched Flower stamp from Hero Arts.
This was a really easy card to make, for the background I used one of my old multi coloured red ink pads and just swiped it across the paper to make the light to dark effect. I then stamped the flower image with Barn Door Distress ink.  Next I coloured in the image using the same ink as a water colour.  I love this new flower stamp, I know its going to be really versatile!!












































Here is another quick one layer card using the same stamp, this time the background is created using copic markers and Alcohol Blending Solution, such a pretty effect. The image is stamped in Black.

Hope you are all having a good week.

I'm loving all the ways you've used this stamp - it's beautiful every which way :) I love the pretty feminine feel to the first card, with the embossing & pearls, and the bright & bold look with the alcohol inks.
