I'm going to share a card with you today made with the background stamp, Hardwood. When I first saw this in the Occasion catalog, I was thinking, "why do I need another wood grain product"? After seeing how some of the demonstrators have used it with different color for the background color, I changed my mind. Now I'm on the fence with this card. The flag color is Tempting Turquoise, but it doesn't look like it. I used Crumb Cake card stock to emboss the image with clear embossing powder. Then I used the ink colors of Crumb Cake and Tempting Turquoise to sponge the image. Now as I was sponge on my colors, I picked up, by accident, some Real Red off my grid paper. So if you see some pink on this, that is why. Who knew?!
I used the Deco Labels to cut out the You're Lovely stamp and then cut out a Crumb Cake one to layer underneath it. Color the flowers with a blender pen and added some pearls.
So it's not the best but I still like that background stamp, will try it again with a different color.
Thanks for stopping by and have a piece of chocolate for me too! Mary
