A little experiment

Bordering Kraft

Monday I got something on my wish list that knocked my socks off when I first saw it:  the Medallion stamp on page 133.  It’s huge — 4½” in diameter — and perfect for a background stamp.  I wanted to use it as a repeating stamp, creating my own designer paper.  I only covered a half sheet of Whisper White, but it was just gorgeous in its simplicity.  I couldn’t stop looking at it!  Then I took a deep breath and cut it in four equal pieces.

Here’s my first creation, very clean, very quick.  I often think I could add more (pearls would be so pretty on this), but I would rather have a simple card that’s ready to use than be late with a card because I couldn’t leave well enough alone.  So I’m done.

After my first success at texturizing only the front of card, I had a miserable time trying to figure out how I had accomplished it!  Stamper Jody reminded me how, and it worked perfectly here.
