This particular actual card started out as an experiment. Several years back before I purchased my Big Kick I was at a stamp store and bought plain white cards with a cut out square window in the center. I got to thinking about a stamp set I had from Stampin'-Up called Vintage Vogue. I wondered if the stamp here would be about the right size to go around the square. So away I started to stamp it.
This is what it ended up like. I really like this card because in real life it looks so very soft and pretty with the different pastel colors of colored chalk that I dabbed onto the card with my ink dobbers and over the stamps. I used several colors to add interest. I hope this close up picture (above) helps you to see the coloring a bit better?
I stamped and colored the inside as well. I then stamped the inside with this little verse that comes with the stamp set. I truly love this stamp set and really haven't used it all that much. I also colored each flower with a different color and placed a colored rhinestone in the center to coordinate and used a pop dot to give it dimension. The "Thank You" on the front is from another stamp set from Stampin'-Up called Wonderful Words. That stamp set is another favorite of mine that I do use often.
I hope you enjoyed stopping by today and return soon. Before you leave why not leave me a comment to let me know your were here?
May your day be blessed!
