Almost Stamp-free....

Welcome

Before I went away I had several cards on a 'must get done' list, and this was one of them.
It was for a young woman, and I hit a block... started rifling through my NUBS mountain and came across a packet of stickers, and this was the outcome.


I adhered the stickers to some cream card, but had no brown card that matched for the base, so out came some white card stock and the Vintage Photo DI , unfortunately, although the cube is new it was very dry, and it took some effort to get a reasonable depth of colour on boarder of the card



I also stamped the greeting in the ink, and that took four tries to get a good impression - thank goodness for the MISTI!!


Some of the stickers were quite puffy, as this shows.  
I also outlined the edge with a ruled and dashed gold line.


The inside was finished with gold spotted washi tape.

Maxine your card is beautiful and unique. The stickers are so pretty.
Try turning your Distress ink pad upside down to see if that will help.
