Time for Tea
Once thoroughly dry, wipe generously with an antistatic bag and then stamp the stamp design with Versamark and emboss with a fine detail black embossing powder. The stamp I have used is Crafty Individuals Tea at Three.
I selected a sheet from the Wild Rose Studio Always and Forever Paper Pack that would complement the bird and the delicate pink shading. I mounted both this and the bird stamp with a black card mount and mounted it onto an 8x8" card blank. The final trimming was a black polka dot ribbon.
I did consider adding some colour to the bird stamp - to highlight some detail - but once I had laid all the card out, I liked all the pink tones - so though that I would leave it as it is!
You'll detect a bit of a heart/love theme this week as I've been busy making some Valentine's Day cards for the shop - but I'm showing them over the next few days to hopefully show you some ideas of variations you can make using only a few supplies.
