from my "normal" of whimsical creatures and beings. This being a bit more "elegant" than I normally do. But I bought this stamp today at my local STAMPING store (along with another...LOL!) and I just had to use it.
You see, I received a card from my FAVORITE Stampin' Up gal (Hi, Gina!) and it had a lovely stamp that was used on it and it is a retired stamp set and I can't find this stamp set (for the price I want to pay) so I've been searching for a suitable replacement. Well, this one kinda fit the bill....it is bigger and it isn't quite exactly the same, but I really liked it, so it had to come home to live with me. :D
What I used: Great Impressions stamp, SU CS, DCWV notecard, Basic Grey PP, paper crimper, stamped it in black Adirondack ink, colored with Copic markers, some faux dew drops, paper piercing tool. After I colored the image, I smooshed my Versamark pad over it and then sprinkled on some iridescent embossing powder, heat embossed it and WOW is it sparkley!
I love these Great Impressions stamps. I need to do a Google search and see what other ones they have that my local STAMPING store doesn't have because all the ones they have in the store I want so I'm SUUUUURE there are MORE that I neeeeed. hehe!
Thanks for running in today!
