Rubber stamping, stamping, papercrafting and other projects from a writer by trade, stamper by passion.

I don't do collage very often, as I'm just not comfortable doing it. But the Ways to Use it challenge at SCS this week was to do a collage using at least four stamps. The sample cards inspired me, and this is what I came up with. (It is in part a CASE of the sample by Collette, challenge hostess).
It's also for this week's Magical Monday challenge to do a birthday card. (And it's really different from anything I made during my month as guest designer for Paper Cupcakes).
The puffy flower (Purple Onion Designs) is clear-embossed on gray paper. I overstamped with a script background stamp using Ranger Slate ink, wiping the ink of the embossing. Then I added the butterflies (Impression Obsession) in opposite corners using SU Eggplant Envy ink.
The sentiment is also stamped in Eggplant Envy ink. I used half-pearls to tie the sentiment in with the bottom of the card. The border punch is by McGill.
