Stamping for a change.....

.....before I forget how!
Good morning everyone, I hope all is well with you on this lovely sunny Autumn morning. A lovely change after the miserable grey day yesterday!
I was looking for something the other day in my craftroom and came across a set of Hero Arts woodblock stamps that I bought more than 5 years ago and they have NEVER been inked!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I had made a card at a workshop using their stamps and liked the effect so bought the stamps and the rest is history. Anyway, enough waffle, here is the card I made using them :o)


I cut and folded white linen card to 5x5.
Using Memento inks, I stamped the woodblocks onto plain white card, the stamped the agapanthus cluster onto it, then cut it and the mat with Nesties.
I found a scrap of pearlised bronze card in my stash and embossed with the Couture Creations tied together folder, and cut the Cheery Lynn foliage from the same card as the mat, more scraps. I think I finally justified buying those woodblock stamps LOL.
I hope you like it :o)
