Sympathy Card

I use the TAC Gerbera Daisy stamp all of the time! It's great to color. It's great to leave plain. It's great in color. It's just highly versatile. And, it's a great stamp for get well and sympathy and birthday and you name it... :)

I decided to make a sympathy card with it the other day pairing it with the TAC With Sympathy stamp set. I made a layered background piece using a piece of wadded up saran wrap. I pounced the wadded up ball on the ink pad and then pounced it on the glossy cardstock. I love how it turned out. You can create multi-colored backgrounds this way too but just remember to change your saran wrap between colors. There are many great options with this technique.
Happy Stamping! (P.S. do you love that I used my typewriter keys for a card easel? What a hoot! I didn't have a surface to use for the pic that had enough light at the time I was shooting it. LOL!)
