Simple and Pretty Card - The Awesomely Artistic Stamp Set Is Just Awesome

The topper on this simple card reminds me of a really pretty tile.

I made a square shaped stencil and placed it over a scrap of Whisper White Card stock, held in place with masking tape.

Then I used a very fine nibbed black pen and drew around the outline of the square stencil.

Next I inked up the floral stamp in my Awesomely Artistic stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and stamped on top of the square stencil, pressing down very firmly to try and ensure that as much of the visible stamped image reached the edges of the stencil as possible.  I careful removed the stencil and allowed the ink to dry.

I used my dark Pool Party Blends pen to colour in the background, leaving the flowers and leaves plain. I die cut the square and layered it on a square of Pool Party card stock and a black square which was die cut with my Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.

The sentiment is from the Dragonfly Dreams Photopolymer stamp set.

I like the simplicity of the card - its very clean and simple.  Perfect for my style of crafting.

I liked it so much I decided to make a pretty co-ordinating gift box with tag too.  Isn't it cool to create your own coordinated cards and gift packaging !   Who needs Clintons when you can do it all yourself ?

That's my little offering for today.  Hope you like it.

Thanks for looking, and I hope you will pop back again.
