I have been a bit creative lately - and getting back to my stamping roots - as you will see from the photo's below. I have used stamps from Ali'sinkyfingers and Clarity Stamps (flowers and florna).
On the first card below, I cut out a shaped card created two matt and layers and using a spectrum noir red pen (DR2) I coloured the edges (only the bits that you could see) and stamped on the smaller matt and layer with an ali'sinkyfingers stamp and water coloured with walnut stain distress ink. I wanted to keep the card quite neutral with the colour coming from the matt and layer. I then took a black fine liner pen and did dots and dashes around the edges of the card creating a patterened border.
