I fell in love with the technique for this week's Made It Monday Challenge for Papertrey Ink - Generational Stamping! You can follow the link to watch the video, but the idea is that you ink each stamp up, then stamp twice so you get two different shades of the same color - great way to stretch your stamp pads! So...here is what I came up with:
I used the PTI "Mehndi Medallions", "a big thank you" (the free set from a couple months ago with an order) and three different PTI ink cubes: Enchanted Evening, Aqua Mist, and Spring Moss.
I followed the example from the video, and distressed the edges of the cardstock, added some machine stitching, and matted with a couple colors of PTI cardstock. The sentiment I stamped with Versamark Ink.
Finished off by wrapping a bit of twine around the first couple of layers. The thing that bothers me the most is that the sentiment is *slightly* crooked! The pictures actually make it look worse than it is - but it still drives me nuts! Might have to remake this one sometime - and get it on straight!
Anyway, thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!!!
