Hopefull Spring Wishes

There are a couple of elements we used to create this card.  Let's start with the Martha Stewart border punch called "Infinite Loop Trim".  We have layered this punched out trim on top of printed paper to draw from the colour combination for the card. 

We used a Magenta paper in shades of greens and pink underneath the punched out trim.  On the white card we've stamped just the leaf portion of the Hero Arts stamp, (pictured further down), in Peeled Paint Distress Ink (A wet paper towel will clean off any ink that strays to the flower head).

To create the scrolled edge of the card and white layer, we've traced the edge of the Hero Arts envelope template on both layers.  Below you will see the punched trim which will lay on top of the matching size printed paper.

Using Victorian Velvet Distressed ink, we've only inked the flower portion of the Hero Arts stamp below and stamped 3 or 4 times resting at the top of the grass designs.  The card was embellished with Glue Pen and Prisma Glitter towards the center of the flower head.

Don't forget that if your polymer stamp design is thin enough, you can force it into a curve onto the clear block.  We used the Kaiser Craft clear set below, and did just that with our verse.  As a finishing touch, don't forget to hide your smudge marks with a little bling. *L*

Maybe if we all think and stamp Spring it will come a little bit faster. Happy Stamping.
