myStampBOX: Collage Cards

Today the designers at myStamp BOX are sharing projects using collage stamping. I used a piece of coral paper from Bo Bunny's Baby Bump collection that had subtle flower outlines in the background. I used Ornamental Flowers and Pumice Stone Distress Ink to create more layers of flowers. I was totally confused by grey ink when it was released (why on earth would they make that?) As soon as I used it I was a complete convert! For this background I stamped the flowers once then immediately stamped again without reinking to get the second set of shadow images. Layers, people, layers!

I added a black border across the center using Decorative Strips. The flower shape was similar to the background, and the deeper color helped the pattern stand out. The sentiment from Whatever says exactly what it means - this card is for no reason at all except to say hi. I stamped the sentiment twice, once in teal and again in black to create a shadow effect.
