Two posts in one day....

now there's a first LOL I just finished another card and managed to get a photo of it before the light starts fading.

This card is for the 'Stamping' challenge at Arty Girlz. I know I use stamps on all my cards, but they are usually watercoloured and I wanted to do something different for this challenge. The background is a muted swirly blue/lilac/green and I used the same paper to stamp my two images on before matting them on pearlised card. The lace background stamp is by Inkadinkado and the hydrangea stamps is by Anna Griffin. I used denim blue Adirondack ink for the stamping. The velvet ric rac is in fact deep purple, though it doesn't look very purple in the photo!
