I'm back! I've missed stamping for almost 3 weeks!!!! This card was created for the technique challenge this week. I'd never done this before and I am loving the result!
I inked my card stock with Peacock Feathers and Shaded Lilac distress inks, then stamped with the wet Victorian Damask Panel before ironing to dry and flatten it. I then punched the edge and mounted onto the purple card stock. The rose image is inked with the Peacock Feathers ink and clear embossed. The sentiment is inked with Shaded Lilac ink and clear embossed. I added just a touch of this great big ribbon. I hope you are having a great day and like my little addition to the gallery.

Welcome back Karen! We chose the same distress colors today..I love how yours turned out (I like how mine turned out too, of course...ha)..your addition of the punched border looks so beautiful..goes great with the overall mood of the card. The damask stamp worked out really well for this technique!
