Joyce’s Card

I used mostly Gina K ink to stamp the various layers. The full list is on my BLOG. I also made a VIDEO. These stamps really make a realistic flower without coloring!  The card using Neenah Desert Storm I used Versamark over flowers and clear embossing as a “fake” mask. Then stamped the text background.

Stamps I used:

Multi Step Carnations

Make A Big Statement

3 Step Letters From The Past


 Thanks so much for stopping by!
