Card **Swirlydoos**

Ok so last month I got all these LaBlanche stamps from Swirlydoos, then I had the hmmm now what do I do with them? So I decided, I bet that would be cool on a card. So here it is. There are actually two stamped images here. The first is a script stamp that I used resist inks on, if you look closely on the edges you can see it. The second is the main stamp. I first stamped the image, than I started to used distress inks and nibs to paint the stamped area. Once I got to how I wanted it, I tore the edges and used more distress inks on the edges. After everything was dry I used a very thick layer of glossy accents on the main stamped image.

I just used cardstocks and Prima masks for the background. I used some moon shadow mists and distress inks on the masking.

I added some seam binding and roses on the bottom.

I finished it off with a Dusty Attic butterfly that I used smooch paints on and added some gems to it. Here is a close up of the script edges also.


I really love the way this turned out and I will use it as maybe a special card. I did not put a title on it so that I can use it for anything. This was so much fun and now that I know what I can do with those stamps I will make lots more cards. I hope that you have a fantastic week.  Feel free to leave me some scrappy love comments, I love reading them ...take care and happy scrapping J
