No layering for Stamp Something Challenge

A quick post before I go off to my Embroidery Group Therapy – Hello, My name is Kim and I am a recovering embroiderer 🙂

So today’s card is for the challenge over at Stamp Something and this week it is all about being simple, and you don’t get much more simple than me 😉

The simple they are talking about is only using one layer of cardstock. So this card is stamped and coloured directly onto the card. I’ve used fun flock and glitter to highlight areas, which you might just be able to see in the close-up. The stamps were actually freebies from a magazine (can’t remember which now – please forgive me) coloured with watercolours.

Stamps – Freebies from a UK magazine
Colouring – Koh-i-nor watercolours
Usual Suspects – Er…white cardstock; trimmer; Ruler; Glue pen
Other – Glitter glues; Fun Flock; Black Fine marker pen; White galaxy marker pen
