Velveteen Stamping

Shari Carroll demonstrated 'Velveteen Stamping' on the Hero Arts website a few weeks ago and now everyone is trying it with some wonderful results. I've tried this on two different backgrounds, white and kraft and the results are quite different.

The first one was done on a white background using the HA Floral Framelits with the Tim Holtz Styled Label die.  I used Seedless Preserve and Pine Needles distress ink on the flower and the HA Starburst stamp in the background. The sentiment is from Darkroom Door Stringed Sentiments and the twine from The Twinery.
The second card was done on kraft using two Distress ink colours (Seedless Preserve and Victorian Velvet) to create a background pattern and edged with Gathered Twigs. The stamps are HA/BG Sweet Threads Antique and Sweet Threads Thank You.

Thank you for dropping by!
