Treasured Memories

Morning.
Today I am playing with one of my favourite flower stamps by Rubbernecker called Flowers in the Breeze.  It is a fun layering stamp and easy to use to create a field of flowers.
The sentiment is a new one to me by Verses called Love Becomes a Memory and today was the day it needed to see some ink.  

I began by placing the flower stamp into my Misti, coloured directly onto my stamp with my Zig markers, sprayed with water and stamped onto 120lb watercolor paper.
I repeated that process, using a darker shade of the red for the second stamping.  
I then stamped the leaves and stems and let it dry.
I placed the sentiment into my Misti, inked with Archival ink, stamped and embossed with clear just to help it pop.




Adding my card to these challenges:

 Brown Sugar- ANYTHING GOES

Simply Papercrafts- ANYTHING GOES

Aud Sentiments- ANY SENTIMENT EXCEPT BIRTHDAY


Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Supplies:  stamps- Rubbernecker, Verses/ Zig markers/ Misti/ TH mister/ ink- Archival/ clear eb powder

*edited to add:  This is a good video to help those of us that struggle with layering stamps.  
I found it helpful using my Misti.

  6. Very very pretty! I would not have thought about using my Misti for the Rubbernecker stamps - duh! Of course! I love the fact that you can re-stamp with a second darker color. Thanks for sharing! Time to break out the Rubbernecker stamps I so dearly love.
