An Almost Stamp Free Card

An Almost Stamp Free Card

I tried, I really tried to get you a card without any stamping on it. But when it could have been called done, it just plain wasn’t.

The flower makes a good focal point for the card, but the bare cardstock base looked incomplete after all the scrap papers and flower sticker was adhered to the card base. To give the base a touch of pizazz, I took an unmounted stamp, inked it with versamark, and slid it under the edge of the flower, and then rubbed the back of the stamp with my fingers to apply the pressure needed to transfer the ink. There are some incomplete spots, but on the whole, it makes the card feel so much more complete.

Have you ever gone back and added little touches to help your cards or scrapbook pages feel more complete? What’s your favorite technique?
