Floral Bouquet - Cheap Stamps

Just a card I made last night. Normally, I don't know what to do with the corner type rubber stamps because they usually don't fit in well with my design but this set of rubber stamps worked well together. I rubber stamped and colored in the images with pastels and shaded with markers. I then cut out the images and mounted them using foam tape to give the central image a framed look. I enhanced the flowers using Stickles glitter. I think this card turned out well.

The stamps by the way are from this really cheapy set that you would find at the back of the shelf sort of hidden away. I don't even know who makes them. Sometimes you can do wonders with cheap rubber stamps. You just need to use a little creativity and you may have to work a little harder to achieve a well designed card but don't discount those not so popular rubber stamps. Sometimes it is worth taking a look when you're at the craft store.

Until later. . .
