Summer Squares

Monday, June 15, 2015

For this card I stamped the solid square stamp, from the new WP9 Greetings and Salutations, in a grid pattern.  I used 7 shades of yellow, orange, and pink ink.  Some squares are stamped full strength and some are second generation, giving the illusion of many more than 7 colors.
I added some details in black with a cool little stamp from the WP9 Papel Picado stamp set.  I die cut, stamped, and heat embossed on some vellum.  I attached the vellum to the stamped panel with some foam tape underneath the black banner.  I didn't want the vellum to lay directly on top of the stamping because then the white sentiment was less visible.

Thanks again for coming by for a visit!
