Oops - spot the mistake

Another day, and learning session.

This large stamp seemed reluctant to adhere to my acrylic square. I gave it a quick squirt with soapy water, dried it and it adhered. Unfortunately, the greetings part I had put on back to front so I was about to ink the back of it when I realised and switched it around:
Yep, I then put it on upside down making the greeting read backwards - ah well.

Today, I used a small snowflake stamp and just my embossing ink (a glue type ink) and water marked the card:
I like this effect and as I photographed it freshly done, don't know whether or not the shine will remain, no it didn’t.

This red card is far too thin to use as a card base but ideal for practising on.

  1. It looks really good....the upside down greeting adds extra interest lol. I'm glad I'm not the only one who makes mistakes....I have no end of trouble with stamping, I need to practise a lot more.

  3. By Christmas you'll be a professional! It looks great, you could also colour your white card with some red ink if you like the effect. Happy stamping x
