Stamp A Pad

The CAS Challenge on SCS is to create a simple background by stamping directly to paper with an ink pad.  I tweaked the technique a bit by stamping the Peacock Feathers distress ink pad on an acrylic block and then stamped it on watercolor paper.  I smoothed out the ink a bit using water with a brush.  I layered a diecut snowflake (SU Bigz die) cut from silver glitter CS (SU) and topped it off witb a die cut button (MFT) threaded with silver cording.  I then clear embossed the sentiment that was stamped with Versamark Onyx Black ink.  I'm not sure I like the kraft card base...the jury is still out on that choice!

STAMPS: Hand Lettered Holiday (WPlus9).

I love the simplicity of the card with the beautiful snowflake and the button taking centre stage, Wanda!!! Love the bg you've done with the DI and the sentiment looks lovely!!! And I do like the kraft base!!!
