My friend Angela bought a new IndigoBlu cling rubber stamp and asked me about trimming it. As I have a pair of craft scissors that I only use for trimming rubber I offered to trim the stamp for her. Angela lives just up the road from me so I said I'd pop back with the stamp when I'd trimmed it but she told me to use the stamp first before bringing it back. An offer I couldn't refuse!
I inked the image with VersaMark, stamped onto watercolour paper and heat embossed with black embossing powder. I used inks and a water brush to colour in the poppies. I made a 5 1/4" square Real Red card base, added the image and stamped and heat embossed the sentiment underneath. I added two jewels to the sentiment to complete the card front. I kept the design very simple but I think the red, black and white colour combo adds a touch of drama.
I used a mixture of silhouette stamps from a Hobby Art clear set to decorate the inside of the card and the envelope.
