I'd like to show you how to make the most out of a stamp set. By layering images with different colors, you can create an interesting scene with lots of interest. Some designers like to mask off images, but I like to show the entire image and create a collage look.

I start by placing images face up to see where they can overlap. Remember that they will face the other way once you stamp them.
Next, choose what ink colors to use. The images that have center stage, should have the boldest colors. In this card's case, the car and sentiment should stand out above the rest. Most ink colors should be soft or light
I start stamping the side that will anchor the other images. In this case, I will move from right to left
I felt that it needed a little something to "anchor" the scene, so I added some clouds.
I added a machine stitch around the card and embellished with 2 clear buttons to compliment the Dew Drop used on the sun. This is what the inside of my card looks like. I always secure m stitch with a foam square and tape my ribbons or string onto the inside of the card.
I hope that you will give this look a try.
Have a great day!
