Saturday morning

Happy Saturday everyone! I love Saturdays. I always seem to wake up early (used to it from the weekdays I'm suppose), but I love being able to just sit, enjoy some blog hopping and not have to race to work.

Last Saturday I was playing with a new set from Penny Black that I just bought, Flower Festival. I tried a technique I've been seeing lately... stamping and embossing the image in white before coloring. I love the soft look of this style.

For this card, I stamped the same flower the traditional way (with black ink). See the difference?
My favorite part? I can get two totally different looks from the same stamp! Now that is being economical! LOL
I'm off to enjoy my morning and do a bit of stamping. See you soon!

I absolutely love the white embossing - but that not to say that the other card is just a beautiful. This stamp sure can brighten up someone's day. I love it when you have your stamping Saturday's !
