One more with my new favourite set


I am loving this set. I thought I would try something a little different with it this time, and stamped the large flourish a couple of times across gloss white cardstock. I drew a few little swirls in with a white crayon, then brayered the lot with Old Olive ink. After polishing it up with a tissue, the white shows up nicely and adds a little interest to the panel.

No black ribbon so I made do with white ribbon coloured in with my Basic Black marker ... it's not a perfect solution but it does the trick.

It's impossible to tell from the scan, but the "kind" label has been attached with a dimensional - I love these little things, they add just that tiny little bit of "whatever" that makes the design work.

And I used that paper piercing technique again; this time it has worked much better than my first attempt.
