Take One Stamp....

Here as promised, are a couple of the birthday cards I've also made this weekend.  After using the Stampington stamp for the Play Date challenge the other day, I was inspired to use another of their great images, and this time I've used it twice to make two different cards - a kind of challenge to myself!  Initially, I was just playing with colour combinations and used the two I liked most.

On the first one I have stamped it with fired brick and dried marigold distress, spritzed and stamped on watercolour paper again.  I used the same colours to stamp Wendy Vecchi images on the card and added some bling.


On the second, I have used fired brick and dusty concord and spritzed again before stamping.  I have used a script stamp (Just for Fun) on the card and some hand-made paper and prima flowers. On a separate scrap of watercolour paper I have stamped this great sentiment by Penny Black (I love them!!)
