(project specific supplies listed at the bottom of this post)

 I thought it would be pretty to white emboss K5877 Get Better onto vellum card stock and then overlay it to some gorgeous floral paper (RSVP by Basic Grey). If you look closely, you’ll notice that I did some omitting–used a Versamarker to ink only the words, but not the round frame portion of the stamp! I was laughing while I did this because I need a new Versamarker… Mine is so old, it has kinda dried up and the brush nib has become a bit worn from use (a good substitute would have been my little Versamark CUBE, but I couldn’t find it at the time)…

Anyhoo, I had to tap the marker to my Versamark pad to load some ink to the tip and then apply it to the stamp–took a little while going back & forth like this, but hey! A stamper’s gotta do, what a stamper’s gotta do, eh?! *chuckle*

Get this! I actually busted out the sewing machine and stitched the vellum and floral paper layers together, just to see if my machine would do it without the threads getting all gnarly. BOOYAAAAAH!!! *fist pump*

A wee bit o’ Washi, a smattering of sequins, and Bob’s yer uncle!

Be sure to check out this great new collection of Hero Arts stamps at Ellen Hutson!
