Pretty in Pink -

Look at my new, lovely Hero Arts stamp I picked up at The Corner Crop in Evansville last week. One of the trends in stamping that I love is the red rubber cling stamp. It enables you to keep the clean crisp images you get from rubber with better storage ability since you don't have to deal with the bulky wooden blocks.
This particular stamp is BIG - about 4" square - I don't have an acrylic mount that big - wait a minute, Yes I do!! Using a Cuttlebug plate works just fine -
I really enjoy distressing the edges of stamped images with my Inkssentials Foam Tool and Distress Ink. You could never sponge an ink as dark as Frayed Burlap this smoothly without the foam tool -
Layered with white onto a kraft base - just a touch of polka-dot brown ribbon and a sentiment by A Muse (9-8246B Thinking of you hand) and it is done - Super quick and easy - I'm thinking I need to make this card in red and orange too!
