Celebrate Everything.

Hello!  Mary here with a simple, yet fun stamped project step-by-step for you.

I began by stamping the Large Button and Small Button stamps with StazOn ink in Jet Black.

Then, because I was stamping on watercolor paper which is very textured, I filled in my stamping with a Faber-Castell pitt artist pen.  The black fades a bit and matches the StazOn ink perfectly!

A little Distress Ink painted on...

... with a few flicks of water add subtle texture.

 Then, I added machine stitching for even more texture.

I embellished with the sweet Girl in Princess Costume stamp and the Until Further Notice sentiment stamp to finish my book covers.

And now, all that's left is to make a book!

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope I've inspired you to grab your favorite VLVS! rubber and make something today!

 xx Mary
