… unlike most of the grass around here which is looking brown and dry due to the heatwave!
The stamp I've used for this is one of those Fiskars ones that is supposed to attach round a roller. I got several stamps and the roller about 5 years ago and just never got on with the roller, in fact it ended up in the bin. And I'm afraid this pretty stamp has stayed NBUS in its unopened packet ever since.
But now I have a Misti, I don't need to worry about not having a long enough acrylic block, so my bigger stamps are getting a new lease of life. For this card I used two shades of green ink, stamping the whole image in the lighter shade and then, without cleaning the stamp, adding darker ink to the top and bottom edges and stamping again. The sentiment is a very, very old stamp whose origins are lost somewhere in the mists of time - possibly from when Dimension Fourth had a stamp of the month club?
The two papers I have used are, in real life, very similar shades of green to the stamping (thanks, camera!) and the lighter green has a slightly woven, fabric-like look. The floral border is made with a Martha Stewart punch.
I am sharing this with Retro Rubber where I have used the sketch but moved the sentiment to the bottom of the card as it looked better on my card.
