Serene Sillouettes stamp set

IMG_0308 (Medium)straight away I want to say this was not my idea – I saw it on pinterest, but had to try it! I liked the idea of using my oval die to use as a stencil. I stamped the serene sillouttes stamp( Stampin Up) in versamark ink onto white cardstock, and white embossed it, die cut and oval and used  what would normally be the waste to pop over the card and inked through it with green and pink inbk.The heat embossed image resisted the ink. I also heat embossed a butterfly stamp on vellum, and coloured it witgh pink ink before fussy cuuting and attaching to the card. Wrapped the whole panel with with organza ribbon.I thoroughly enjoyed doing this ione, and time permitting will experiment further with different shapes and stampoed images! Til tomorrow….
