I made another card this week where I combined a Penny Black "cute" stamp and a floral "brushstroke" stamp to create an autumn scene.
Using a handmade mask, I inked up the hill portion with Peeled Paint Distress ink. The flower stamp from Penny Black - Blossom Branch - was inked using Distress inks as well and stamped with the help of a stamp platform. As you can see, I stamped a small portion of the flowers again on the right side.
The hedgehog image - Hedgie Gift - was stamped on a separate piece of card stock and colored with a mix of distress inks and a few pencil strokes on the apples then fussy cut before adhering to the card. I used Foam Tape to make them pop up. A border stamp from a set I won a couple of years ago was stamped along the bottom edge, unfortunately it came as unmounted rubber and I don't remember which company it was from.
The autumn sentiment is from a retired Whimsy Stamps sentiment. Before adhering the card front to the base I inked around the edges to soften them a bit.
