are difficult for me most times.
This is a card I made for a friend whose birthday is this week. The tree stamp is an older Penny Black. I used a technique that I learned years ago, but had pretty much not done in forever, called shadow stamping (or offset stamping). A card made by the oh, so talented Elizabeth Allan recently made me want to try it again.
Elizabeth used delicata gold ink to stamp over her tree but I don't have that pad. I used Brilliance lightning black, which has some very subtle gold undertones that are hard to capture in a photo. It is one of my favorite Brilliance pads. The green ink is Memento bamboo. The sentiment is Hero Arts and the paper is Basic Grey.
Have a great day!
