So when I first got into stamping I used to stamp everything on my cards, including all my background papers. I've been watching a few distress ink tutorials on YouTube and thought I'd revisit my stamping roots with some totally stamped cards. I've used some of the newer, less grundgy distress inks. On both cards once I had coloured my background paper I overstamped with water before stamping again with the inks. I really like the effect. Don't you just love coming up with something this colourful when all you started with was white card and a few inkpads?
The script stamp and sentiment are by Kaisercraft, swirl stamps by Inkadinkado. For my flowers, on the larger card I used the Marianne Poinsettia die, on the smaller, my EK Success Retro Flower punches. That's it! Enjoy your day.
