January Stamp of the Month

Now, back to the card.  I have loved working with the elegant January Stamp of the Month. Here is another shot of the card to help you see a bit more detail:

And, here are some technique explanations: 
  • I sponged the dimensional element larger heart with Saddle ink and my Round Sponge and then sponged around just the edges with Chocolate ink.
  • I sponged just the edges of the smaller heart with Saddle ink.
  • I random stamped one of the flowers on Cashmere cardstock to create my background piece and then used my trusty spray pen filled to the first line with Saddle reinker and then to the third line with water and sprayed the background piece. I love this look!
  • The circle and scalloped circle were cute on my Cricut with the wonderful Art Philosophy cartridge (over 700 images!) and after I glued those two together I mounted them on my card with 3D foam tape.
