Skipping Stones Design Tip/Technique Hop!

Hello everyone,

We are here to share another Tip or Technique Hop with you today.

A lot of times we try and curve out stamps but it can also go the other way.

 I took the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Victorian Summer stamp set and stretched it out to be straight.  So it's always fun to look at your stamps in more ways than they were entered to be.

Now on to my card.  I love this stamp and really wanted to showcase it so I started out with a watercoloured background and stamped it in Versamark.  Then I heat embossed it in white embossing powder.  I took a piece of vellum and did the same thing but in different areas of the panel.

 I glued it on to the card base and added the die cut sentiment, added some glitter, cause everything needs glitter!  I then glued that to the vellum panel and called it done!  I didn't want to add anything else to the card because I really wanted to see all those beautiful flowers.

Here is a list for the of the design team.  Be sure to have a look at everyone on the way as there are some amazing creations for you.  

Happy Hopping!
