Stand Tall!



I decided to pull out an old favorite technique for this card (and for several others I made tonight and will post later on this month) -- Antique Glimmers.  I have all of the supplies for that technique here in Florida!

I used a  variety of colors of Distress Inks for this card.  Then I used a new Technique Junkie February release stamp CAlligraphy Loops - http://techniquejunkies.com/calligraphy-loops/ and a fun Technique Junkie stamp called Stand Tall - http://techniquejunkies.com/stand-tall/.  I used black Versafine ink with clear embossing powder on the calligraphy loops and heat embossed it.

Both the background card stock and the focal image card stock used the Antique Glimmers technique.   Several layers of card stock and a row of black self adhesive pearls finish the card.

I also want to say that having a great background stamp  is wonderful in my stamp collection.  You do not need to have a certain theme of stamp to go with it.  Almost any stamp will go with this calligraphy stamp.  And it (as well as all of the Technique Junkie February release stamps) is on sale for 15% off through 'February 8! Have you made your choice of stamps to buy yet?

Have a great day -- and get inky!
