1 stamp... 2 ways...and a SALE :)

Hello, and happy Saturday to you! Today I have been playing with my new Flower Bursts background stamp from Hero Arts. {it's on sale super cheap HERE} For both cards I stamped on the same text patterned paper from the Madeline collection by Prima. For this first card, I stamped with broken china distress ink.
I love this background so much, I didn't really want to cover it. So, I added just a few pearls.
I love that you can still see the subtle text through the distress ink. Very cool!....For this card, I stamped with distress embossing ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Same stamp, but a totally different look. :)
I inked it up with distress ink in broken china. Such a fun and easy technique! 
The sentiments on both cards are from the Floral Sentiments set from MyCreativeTime. I white heat embossed them. Speaking of MyCreativeTime, have you shopped the sale yet???

Here are the deets :)

Happy Shopping!
