Stamp Something Challenge

The challenge this week from Stamp Something is to create a "little something to say Thank you". This is a fairly new challenge blog and my first entry. I love stamping but when you are making lots of cards to order, it's easier to go with embellishments and the like. This morning was me time and I've been having a ball playing and decided to try a couple of challenges...sadly this afternoon it's back to work and the card orders again.
I used this technique many years ago and had completely forgotten about it until I saw it again this week on Shari Carroll's blog.
To create the background I stamped with Docrafts Love stamp in Black Staz-on all over the background. Using my new Rhona Farrer Flourish stamps which I think you might be seeing a lot of and versamark pad, stamped at random and then embossed with white embossing powder. Dabbed Green and Brown Ink onto a silicon sheet and spritzed with water.
Then lay the card onto what you can only describe as a puddle, press all around and lift off carefully. When it is dry wipe over with a kitchen towel to remove the ink from the white image. Added some of my Artful Collage flowers from Prima - something else you might be seeing a lot of. The sentiment is from a set of clear stamps from HOTP with a bit of ribbon added.
