I made wedding invitations in January for a friend (whose wedding, incidentally, is today!! Congratulations to Nina and Chris! ), so I wanted to use the same colour scheme for her wedding card. I pulled out my Hero Arts shadow inks in Raspberry and Soft Brown, and Hero Hues Chalk ink in Latte. I inked up Hero Arts Lotus Background stamp with these colours, using sponge daubers, then stamped onto Stampin' Up Sahara Sand cardstock. (I then decided I wanted to add some shimmer, so I inked it up again, and spritzed with Perfect Pearls Mist.) Then some judicious trimming and punching into shape, adding some SU Rose Red cardstock and a base of Ivory metallic cardstock (don't ask me where I got that, it's been in my stash for YEARS!) and some flowers (an EK Sucess punch I've had for donkeys ages) some bling and a glimmer pen from Sakura, and voila!
I had some of the stamped panel left over, so I grabbed a tag die from Papertrey ink, ran it through my Bigshot and made this card:
IMPORTANT!!Don't ink the stamp in the coloured ink first, then Versamark, unless you want your Versamark ink pad to be coloured instead of clear!!
I then had the original panel I had stamped without the perfect pearls left, so I couldn't let that go to waste, so I made 2 more cards!!
