I decided to use my new Small leafy Swirl stamp along with the sentiment Just a Note. I love the leafy swirl stamps and the font of the sentiment blends in nicely with them. I have used only one ink pad Archival Brilliance - Pearlescent Lavender.
I began by stamping the leafy swirl around the edges of my Card Blank, 'blotting before plotting' as Barbara Gray is always saying.
I then taped up a piece of Textured Card with Low Tack Tape and stamped the swirl at an angle. Next I stamped the sentiment followed by the swirl again.
I then part stamped the swirl in the opposite corners but this time adding a blotted image too.
I shaded in the corners using my Clarity Stencil Brushes. I removed the Low Tack Tape and taking my ink pad I ran it along the edges of my image. I finally
attached this piece to my already stamped card blank with double sided tape
I do like the effect of the shading in this card which unfortunately is quite hard to see. I went for a light touch rather than having dark corners as it suited the colour of the ink better.
