Notecard Set

I've had these background papers made with Distress Inks using a Technique Junkies Newsletter technique for a while and decided to use them with a Penny Black background stamp to make a set of notecards. I used Brilliance Starlite Black Pearlescent ink for the background stamp and just layered each piece onto a piece of cardstock in a contrasting colour, then added a punchy or die-cut to finish. The finished card measures 3 and 7/8" square and used Pedigree Paper textured white cardstock.






I'm entering these cards for the following challenges :- Annabelle Stamps - Say It With......Background Stamps.



and Less Is More - Week 55 Theme - Punches or Die-Cuts.


That's it for today, gotta go, dinner's almost ready!
