Above is a picture of a card I made years ago, but never felt it was finished. I finally decided what to do. I don't have a before picture, but imagine the card with just the backgound papers and the center die cut image. Very plain surround!
So, after all the playing around with my peg stamps from Rubber Stamp Tapestry and my new Tsukineko Memento inks, I finally have the right idea and right equipment to finish the card. I used some of my peg stamps and inks in Morocco, Tangelo, and Potter's Clay to stamp tiny images like wallpaper all around the pretty blank yellow surround. Pretty cool, huh?!
BTW, you probably can't see the center image very well. It was an early attempt to use glitter with packing tape placed over a stamped Hero Arts flower image. And after all these years, the glitter is still intact on the packing tape! Pretty strong stuff!
I think this would now make a perfect all-occasion, thinking of you card. A few of which I could kind of use right now!
Thanks for looking!
