Another challenge for me on #simplestamping Using the Dear Doily (148690) stamp set, with Gray Granite and Smoky Slate cardstock. The ink is Tranquil Tide, which just as a reminder will be retiring the end of May. Are you planning on getting yours early?? This is really the way to go… card stock, ink, refill and ribbon will all retire May 31. The card was designed for one of my library classes….. check out my events for the next one. This sentiment could be just about anything on the inside. The little bow added to the sentiment seemed to add just enough pretty to a sad card. Keeping all the stamping to just one color to keep this even more simple, but elegant at the same time. The doilies on the inside are second generation… meaning that you would stamp the imagines on the front and without re-inking you stamp the inside. The smaller doilies are second and third generation… Then the inside sentiment can stand out better with the first generation stamp. This week we will be focusing on the retiring in-colors… check back and Have a Great Day getting Crafty!!
