ANOTHER CARD USING ANOTHER CHA SUPERSHOW PURCHASE!!!

Happy Sunday, everyone!!!  I pray you're all feeling much better than I am.  Yes!!!  I'm still not feeling too well, I can't seem to shake this nagging migraine!  I am, though, trying to deal with it.

I noticed I have several new followers I'd like to welcome into our little close-knit family!  Welcome newcomers!!! I hope you enjoy your visits here, please do browse around, make yourselves right at home, and visit with some of the others in our neighbor!  Also, please check out my previous post and comment for the small giveaway of a stamp, if you're interested.  You are more than welcome to participate.

Okay everyone, I have another card to share with you today.  Of course, again, I'm using accessories purchased at the CHA Supershow.  The stamp is made by Heartfelt Creations and is called the "Bella Rose Sroll", and as with the previous stamp I posted, this also has a corresponding die.  The stamp also comes as a set of 2 stamps -- the scroll image and a sentiment stamp... how cool is that?!!!

To give a bit of color to the stamped image, I used Viva Inka-Gold.  What I like most about these inks as opposed to the Luster line is that you can add water to decrease and/or intensify the color.  Here's a picture of the stamp and inks:


And here's the card:

The only thing I didn't enjoy in making this card was cutting out the images.  I cut out 2 of the scrolls and several of the florals to layer to give it dimension.  I did add a bit of stickles for effect, and just mounted the images to a card.  I didn't do any other deocr or embellishing on this card because I didn't think it need it -- to me, it looks pretty in the simplicity in which it was put together.

Now if you haven't already done so, please get your comments in on my previous posts for the stamp giveaway.  You have until 5 p.m. tomorrow!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!!  Love you all, and ...

I'll be seeing you!

Gorgeous! Too bad they didn't have a die to go with this one. Great job of hand cutting though. Hope by now you're feeling much better, although I still hear it's mighty hot! xxD
