Not only does this stamp have a book paper pattern (I LOVE book paper!) but it is called Piano Forte, a music term, which fits in perfectly with the music theme of the April kit. To demonstrate how to use the stamp, I created a couple of cards.
For my butterflies, I stamped my image in black ink several times on some ivory scrap paper. Then I punched out several butterflies in different sizes. By stamping first, I was able to center the butterfly over the part of the image I liked. I love how neutral the butterflies are.
Thank U Card
For this project, I used pretty much the same technique as the butterflies on the first card. But this time, I punched out circles. Oh, and do you see those butterflies? Punched from the packaging of the Melody Ross layered chipboard flowers that come in the April Project Kit.
Hope you'll dig out your stamps and give them a try! And when you do, be sure to share your creations, so I can learn some new techniques.
Thanks for stopping by!
