Layered stamping - my first attempt

Last month one of the craft magazines ran a daily competition on Facebook with lots of prizes and I was one of the lucky ones, winning this lovely layering stamp set from Altenew. The trouble was I didn't have enough inks in shades of any one colour to try the layering. Then I took part in a video survey for a craft business and was given some vouchers to thank me for it - enough to buy two  Altenew packs of coordinating mini ink cubes, so over the last rainy few days I've been having a play.

I'm not used to lining up the different layers yet, as you can see - I think maybe some guidelines on the stamps would help a lot, maybe I'll try adding some with an indelible pen. I have another set of layering stamps lurking in my NBUS where it's been loitering for several years - I wonder if I'm brave enough to give that one a try now?

For the base card I used a Marianne large scalloped circle die to cut a card blank, making sure the die was positioned so that the card would rest on two scallops symmetrically at the bottom  and that it overlapped the fold to leave it hinged at the top, then cut the circle again in deep ruby card and aligned it over the base card. Then used my old faithful Nesties to cut out the image and a light ruby scalloped layer.

I am sharing this with
