Just popping in to share a quick card with you guys.  I used one of my all time favorite technique on this one - generational stamping.  This card used one stamp set and one inkpad.  Love that!

For this technique, the darker the ink, the better.  I used CTMH's Smokey Plum, and stamped the background in three generations (although the last one is really hard to see) on a diagonal.

Once this was done, I stamped the sentiment.  It seemed a little light to me, so I over-stamped it (stamped directly over it again) to get a really dark color.

I debated adding some dots or bling, or something, but decided I liked the simpler look, plus it'll be easier to mail.

Hope your week is off to a great start!  I am so excited today as I'll be hanging out with some of my Gallery Idol Girls tonight and tomorrow!  SO.MUCH.FUN!

Supplies Used
Paper/Cardstock: CTMH - White Daisy and Smokey Plum Cardstock
