Just Because...

I absolutely LOVE this stamp, and yesterday was the first time I had a chance to play with it.

All stamps on this card are from the Siberian Iris clear stamp set by Flourishes.

I stamped the iris three times on watercolor paper using Onyx Black Versafine ink, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder. The stamped images were colored with Tombow markers and a damp paint brush. One of them was cut out and popped up using foam tape, and only the center leaves of the third one was used.


The designer paper is from the Basic Grey Wisteria paper pad. The cardstock is all from the Amethyst Prismatics paper collection.

I wanted to embellish it more, but finally decided I should leave it alone. I wish my photography was better. The colors are so must prettier in real life.

Okay...I'm off to make dinner while I watch Dancing With The Stars. It's too close to the end to miss anything at this late stage! :-)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
