Here's a side view of the card. I was worried it was going to be too bulky but it's not bad.
So to add some "stamping" to this card I stamped a flourish on the flower in chocolate chip ink.
I just picked up this stamp set called Pollen Dust by Fancy Pants. It has some great accent stamps in this set.
The only trouble is the the one I wanted to use - the biggest stamp in the set - is so big that I don't have an acylic block for it. Now I know you can use the back of your Stampin' Up! stamps with acrylics and this stamp would probably fit on my background stamps - you know the part that has the sticker on it - but that defeats the purpose of using acrylic stamps! I like to see where I'm stamping especially on something like my ONLY blue flower!
So here's my next tip....
TIP: As I said in an earlier post I've been saving plastic packaging for die cutting accents. Guess what? I have a sturdy piece of plastic that is the perfect size for this stamp! It's actually better than an acrylic block because it's flexible and that's just perfect for stamping on something that has a bit of texture or dimension like flowers!
Now got get stamping and show me your version of my current sketch challenge!
