Mommy...Please post this

Another Saturday Make & Take

Michaela was quick to ask if I was going to post this card on the internet like her other ones. "Of course I will!" So here is the beautiful card that Michaela created at Stamps Works on Saturday.

This card was a little more challenging for Michaela, but she pulled it off. Didn't she do a great job!

The flower stamp is from Penny Black. First you ink up the image in a lighter colored yellow/orange (I would tell you the colors of ink used...but I can't remember!) -- then you take a darker yellow/orange color and ink up around the outer edges. Last you take a green and ink up the leaf area -- then you are ready to stamp the image on the paper. The paper used here had flecks in it. She also used an ink pad and swiped it over the edges of paper pieces and over the surface of the rust paper. Edge distressing was also done and a first for Michaela. She picked "thanks a bunch" for the saying. Stickles glitter glue used on the flower for some sparkle.
