This card was made using a mix of KOM 09/08 Friendship, Love, Miracles & Growing In Unity sets. I kind of love how it turned out. Here's how I made the card:
Focal Background - stamped Growing in Unity flourish stamps using 4 Distressed inks - Broken China, Shabby Shutters, Scattered Straw and Antiqued Linen.
Using a stamp-a-ma-jig, I stamped the sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black.
Stamp the butterfly with Versafine Smokey Gray & coloured it using a blue & green colour pencils. Go over the dots on the butterfly with Marvy Glitter pen (silver).
Stamp the scallop border on a scrap white cardstock, and colour it randomly using the same blue & green colour pencils.
Adhere the scallop to the bottom of the main focal image.
The faux stitching was with a Souffle pen in light green.
This is a Clean & Simple card done with Unity's KOM 09/08. I love all the stamps from that kit. Here's what I did:
- I stamped the scallop border in Distress Ink Broken China, and coloured it with a blue & green colour pencils.
- Next, I stamped the sentiment using Versamark and brushed Pearl-ex over the stamped area.
- Then, I stamped the trees using Versafine Onyx Black, and coloured it using 2 shades of colour pencils.
- Pearl-ex is a little messy and it doesn't just stay where it's supposed to, so I brushed on 2 other colours of Pearl-ex above the sentiment - a pale greeen and brown.

Recently, I have been busy shopping online - this is scary! I'm back to my 1st (crafting) love - Stamps!! I have not catalogued my stamps for 1.5 years but I think I have more than 3000 stamps. It sounds crazy but stamping is very very addictive.
