Tonight I have a card that is perfect for summer. I used a piece of shimmery white card stock and then added coastal cabana, flirty flamingo and poppy parade ink using blending brushes to give the paper an ombre effect. Then I used my Stamparatus to stamp the Thanks image from the Ornate Thanks stamp set. I use the Stamparatus if the image is big and might require me to stamp twice, or in this case, if I have a background that took me some time to create. I love that the Stamparatus holds your paper in place and you can re-ink your stamp to make sure you get a perfectly crisp image every time. 🙂 I cut the butterflies from the Be Dazzling specialty paper that you can earn for free with a $50 purchase through the end of September. I can’t wait to play with this paper some more. So what do you think of the color combination?
