I have been inking up my new stamps. As a demonstrator we can preorder some selected stamps sets from the new 2009-10 Catalogue. When I saw these I had to get it. I loooove Australian Native Plants. The first card I created was very simple. The detail in these stamps are so fine you don’t need to do anything with them. I stamped the Waratah in Chocolate Chip and stamped it twice on the Close to Cocoa card base. I then stamped it on Bordering Blue and then also stamped on the word. The words come with the flowers but I separated them to give me more flexibility. I tore the top and sides and then distressed it with my fingers. After distressing it for a little bit I could then separate the two layers and curl the corner. I did the same on a larger square of Kiwi Kiss, one of the new In Colours. I adhered the 2 colours together and punched a hole in the bottom left corner. I tied a small piece of twine through the hole and frayed the edges. Then it was a matter of sticking the piece to the base card. The longest part of this card was distressing the card. I really liked the end result, if I can say that!
