Hi friends! When I was making this card, I was in the mood to get back to my stamping roots and get inky. So I pulled out my stamps from Classy Cards 'n Such and put this together.
I started by very lightly sponging some medium blue ink over the Texture Mesh stencil onto white cardstock. Then I stamped the Worn Rose Branch (Impression Obsession) right over the stenciled area. Using a dark blue ink, I stamped the sentiment from the With Love set (Stampavie) at the bottom. This piece was matted with a blue cardstock, and I used the Curled Corner Technique from Technique Junkies to give it a little dimension.
Next, I stamped the Damask Cover-a-Card background (Impression Obsession) onto white cardstock using the Mega Mount tool. This is invaluable for helping you to stamp with your larger stamps like backgrounds. I adhered this background to a blue card base and then I glued the rose branch piece to my card.
Sometimes a gal just has to play with her stamps, and that's exactly what I did. I love how the rose branch looks with the faded stencil-work in the background, and that Damask background looks so rich and elegant.
