Pastel Mums

I created one card with this stamp that was in bright yellows and oranges.  I wanted to do the card in a softer look.  So I brayered ink from an older Kaliedacolor pad. Remember those?  I let it dry. This first card is created on plain white card stock.  The next one will be on glossy card stock:

Glossy card stock:

This is only to show you the very subtle differences between regular white card stock and glossy card stock. When you are trying to decide -- test both.  Remember it is only paper.

However, I will say this - when you are stamping photo type stamps - glossy paper is the only thing to use.  It makes a world of difference in the fine details in photo stamping.

I mounted both sheets of card stock on hot pick card stock and then on the blue.The pale blue ribbon is tried around the pink card stock before being layered on the base card stock.

The first verse is from Sentimental Sayings - .  The second verse is from Mae West Sentiments 2 -  Both are Technique Junkie Stamps!   The verse are stamped with Versafine blackink, covered with clear embossing powder and heat set.  They vellum was torn around the verse. I sponged a slightly darker blue ink than the base card stock because I felt it showed up better and yet it blended well.
