Stamping Patterns With Pen Detail

Wednesday, April 27, 2016

Hi!  I went into my craft room the other night looking for a little quiet time to decompress from work.  I just wanted to pull out some images and some of my favorite colors and stamp without any plan for turning it into a finished project.  Just stamping for stamping's sake. 

 I chose a set from PTI called Mat Stack 5 to create my pattern.  Once my pattern was stamped I added dot detail with a fine tip black pen.  I loved how the pattern turned out so today I decided to turn it into a card.  I die cut the piece using the Sunshine Layers die from WP9.  I created the pink strip by adding ink to white cardstock in order to have a perfect match. 
 I love the look of black text over colorful stamped images.  This is how I added my sentiment using a stamp from another PTI set called Half and Half.  I finished it off with this amazing butterfly from the WP9 Small Butterfly Frame die set.
