I have a personal challenge that I've laid down for myself - to USE some of my stamp sets that don't see a lot of ink. I needed to make a card for my mother-in-law's upcoming birthday, and chose to use the beautiful My Friend stamp set. I'm playing along at JAI 'just for fun' this week; I need to reclaim some of the mojo that seems to have deserted me since Christmas.
It's a little hard to see in my shady (in more than one sense of the word!) photo, but I stamped the card base with the circular snowburst image; I also stamped the same pattern on the right-hand side of the main panel, before spritzing with markers over the top. The floral stamp was inked up with markers, and I used a blender pen to pick up more colour from inkpads, to add a bit of depth to the colours of the flowers.
