Featured Stamper: Vicky Gould

Vicky is such a deserving Featured Stamper on SCS today! I found this gorgeous Friendship card in her gallery and couldn’t wait to pull out my old stamps and CASE it.

The Designer Series Paper I used is retired, as is the stamp set, Botanicals. I stamped the image with Basic Brown ink and colored the poppies purple (to match the paper) with a blender pen. Instead of photo corners, I decided to curl up two of the corners of the patterned paper mat, and do some piercing in the Perfect Plum corners underneath.

Thanks for stopping by!
