Here are some cards I did, inspired by a sample Heather made at Heather's Stamping Haven. She had embossed the floral background (Hero Arts) in white and coloured with Distress Inks. That's what I did here too, swiping my inks on a craft sheet and lifting the colours with a wet paintbrush. The birthday sentiment is from Impress Rubber Stamps. The image is mounted on a piece of citron cardstock and the card base is white shimmer. This kind of makes me think of a china pattern or something. I did a whole bunch of these in different colourways, and mostly thank yous and happy birthdays. Once I came up with the layout I liked, it was easy. Now I wish I'd matted the sentiment panel, but it's too late now! I tried adding some stitching with a white pen, but it doesn't look great. I think I will just live with them like they are.
Hope all is well with you where ever you are! Happy stamping :-)
