Hello.  Welcome.  Sssh!  I'm supposed to be doing something else but when I posted my last card I happened to see Etsuko's post on the Paperartsy blog.  Flushed with my initial 'stamping platform' success I decided to try a bit of shadow stamping.  

Well, I like it!!  

I added a piece of grid paper to my IKEA frame and positioned my card and HP1103 stamp.  I stamped with black archival, moved it a cm and stamped with Ripe Persimmon.   Nice!!!!  But I thought the gap was a bit big so I moved it back a bit, stamped with Dried Marigold, moved it back a bit and stamped with Mustard Seed.  (no picture sorry, it was too blurry!)

I thought the black had suffered a bit so I put the card back in the original position and restamped the black archival.  I stamped the sentiment from SIDD1 and used the distress inks to make the sunburst pattern and edge the card.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Now I really must go and eat some cake tidy up after yesterday's harvest party.  Hugz
