Im loving working with the Stamps by Me range, it gets the old cogs in my brain working again.
With Love and Flowers is one of Toni's new stamp sets, I got an idea in my head but couldn't try it out until Grandson Jack was out of bed because the loft ladders open into his room and I don't suppose doing that at 2am ish would be a good thing.
The basic idea was positive and negative with a twist of colour on both sides.
I started by masking off a rectangle and then stamping the detail part of the stamp in light green, I then used ink to to blend into the masked area but trying to avoid the stamped image.
I then removed the masking tape from the rectangle and overstamped the detail stamp in black.
Next masked off the image over the rectangle and stamped the colour fill part of the stamp.
Finishing by stamping the sentiment down the side and added a couple of squiggle lines to make a frame.
