Stretch Your Stamps Class Day 5 - Take 2

The second card I made today was with the focus on the sentiment.  I used a scrap of patterned paper and scrap of plain paper. To play off the circles on the scrap paper, I used one of the geometric stamps from the Paper Smooches set and Versamark ink to add dimension to the plain cardstock.

I also used Tim Holtz Distress Inks on the background of the sentiment.  Instead of using water, I used Mister Huey's Color Mist in Shine.  It doesn't show in the photo, but there are streaks of shine mixed in with the colors.  I am still quite the novice with this technique, but it has been fun to play with.


  1. Very nice. Your stamped background reflects really well off the patterned paper. The little flower for the I in "wish" is cute -- does it come like that or did you do it that way?

    1. Thanks! The flower for the I is part of the stamp. I traced over it with a silver gel pen to match the silver in the sentiment ink - it just doesn't show up well in the photo.
