Hello. Yesterday I got some happy mail from my friend and DT sista Shar. THANKS SHAR!!! She made and sent me two of these pretty rosettes! As soon and I saw the little perforation marks I knew exactly what stamp was just screaming to be used so I went and got the adorable Hearts a Plenty background stamp from MarketStreetStamps.com. I also just happened to have my aged mahogany distress ink out and it matched that button perfectly! SCORE! ;)
The sentiment is from the Vintage Greetings set from PinkByDesign. OH "tip alert"!!! Speaking of distress ink..... It can sometimes be hard to get a good stamped impression when using distress inks, but here is a tip to remedy the problem! Before inking up with distress ink...ink up your stamp with embossing ink first! The embossing ink acts a little like glue to help hold the distress ink on. :)
I hope you are having a fabulous weekend!
