First time I'm using this stamp from Inkadinkado, and one of the sentiment wordings of Club Scrap that I love . . . first card . . .
Second card I decided to use distress inks on a shadow stamp, and a line pattern (inspired by Susan) from Club Scrap - not as chic as hers, but one's got to use what one's got!
Thirdly, I love playing with the distress inks so kept going! Adding flourish from Stampin' Up and script writing from Paper Chain in South Africa.
I bought the swan stamp to be used for my blog header, and this challenge helped me bring it all together. Thanks for the comments.
