Linda and I watched a video at Jennifer McGuire's Blog
and we looked at each other and thought of doing the same thing, obviously with a different background stamp (it had to be holly and I just happened to have an older wooden Hero Arts stamp called Holly Flourish. Being the Bestie, I let my friend use it first and WOW do I love what she did with it! (Of course, I was slaving away in the kitchen browning up some beef for a taco salad, and then making a Texas Chocolate Sheet cake, and grilling some chicken for our lunch!! All while my friend is just playing away in the studio!!) Ha Ha!! My thought was to maybe use gradient greens, tried it and did NOT like it. So then Linda gave me this idea: stamp the holly flourish with white pigment ink, then with the BACK of a rectangle stamp (just happens to be a PTI: Crackle stamp) I inked up the back with the green and stamped it ...had to do it four times to get a good layering of ink! Doesn't it look cool? and the picture below I took at an angle hoping you could see the white on white...it is very soft and velveteen looking!
My sentiment is a SSS die cut with a little PPP gold heart for an accent!
Go here to Merry Monday to play along.
