I have been stamping a lot of similar cards using different colours and different sets, but the result is that I have quite a pile of 'easy-to-mail' (read: not my usual layers) cards. It will come in handy, I am sure, but I think it's time to branch out a little!
The photo does not do the gold justice on this card... I finally bought a Delicata ink pad and holy WOW is it ever sparkly. Worth it. I like the vintage appeal of this colour combo... I think that's why I like stamping backgrounds so much; I get to really play with colour combinations and manipulate them to make whatever my mood feels like. It's therapeutic, for sure.
The kids are leaving school early this afternoon, so I am off to soak up the last hour of peace before I have to go get them for the weekend. It's been one of those weeks... *wink*
