Getting inky!

It's not often I get really inky when I stamp.  I try to avoid such messes as they inevitably end up in the wrong place and I end up with extra cleaning to do.  CAS all the way! 

I decided to live dangerously for the sake of trying a new technique.  I chose a piece of multicolored paper, stamped a background stamp in Versamark and embossed it in clear.  Then I applied black ink to the whole think and wiped it off the embossed parts.  My fingers were covered in black ink but I think it was worth it. 

Stamps: Anna Griffin (floral) and Scrappy Cat (sentiment)
Ribbon: Offray
Cards shipped to OWH in 2012: 928 blank and 215 AnyHero (as of 6/26)

  1. It certainly was worth it. This is absolutely gorgeous and the black ribbon goes so well with it. A total winner!

  2. Yes it certainly was. Just beautiful!
