Get Stamped!

Stamping seams to be a theme this week, this card is made from plain card only, everything on it is stamped.
This card started, unusually for me from the back to the front.  The first thing I did was to stamp my creative expression text stamp randomly over a cream square 5 x 5 card blank.  This was then coloured using cut n dry foam and a selection of Momento Inks in brown and berry shades.
Next I took a piece of cream card 4.5 x 4.5 and randomly stamped over the surface using the mix of colours I used loads of random stamps, text, butterflies, birdcages flourishes etc. until I had an overall pattern.  This was then coloured in the same way, the cut n dry allows you to blend different colours together and create lovely cloudy effects.
I then cut this sheet into 9  equal squares and mounted them onto the backing with foam tape.  Finally Do´crafts Love butterfly stamp onto chocolate pearl card with Detail White embossing powder and a key hole stamp, from Do'crafts, stamped onto Core´dinations.  This was fussy cut then sanded, coloured and mounted.  A piece of String and a button finished!
 Different than recent posts but I hope you Enjoy...
