I started stamping with these stamps on a strip of paper - I wanted to test if my idea worked. It did, so I set this strip aside until today.
I added some green in here this time - I can only do monochromatic for so long. The central panel has a collage of images - I just love that quote. The harlequin background is done with picket fence stain, and a crafter's workshop mini-template. So fun!
Here, I went a little cleaner, with just a focal image, and a little ribbon at the bottom - the ribbon is velvet which makes it very posh.
I had fun collaging these images. The lady was stamped first, and then I covered her with a piece of paper. When stamping big ben, I made sure to choose a lighter colored ink, so it would appear to be more in the background. The greeting was stamped and embossed last. Since embossing powder is opaque, it will be in the foreground.
