I had a play with some stamps that I've had lurking for ages but never really used much (and how many of us have got some of those?!).
The stamps were from a set from Chocolate Baroque called 'Paisley Elephant'. I stamped two of the larger stamps in memento ink in cocoa and then had a play with a Big'n'Juicy ink pad (Mountain Meadow) and some Cut'n'Dry foam - just love those colours. The elephant image I stamped with memento black and then coloured with promarkers and distressed the edges with purple.
I then layered these up with Coredinations card, gold mirri card, some fine peel-offs and some purple ribbon from my stash. Although it's quite a simple card I was quite pleased with the effect, and decided not to add any extra bling as the backing & images are quite detailed. A venture into something different for me - I'll need a lie down in a dark room now before I head back to pretty pastel colours & flowers lol!
Back soon, Kim x
