Today's card is another CASE. Today's card is a Patty Bennett inspiration. I actually had to make this card three times before I got one that was presentable! LOL! You can't see it in the picture, but the bottom of the flower pot is brayered with Dusty Durango ink. This gives it a "textured" look. The top part of the pot is just folded over before using the eyelet punch on the edge. The flowers are from the Level 3 Hostess set, Kind and Caring Thoughts. This is such a pretty set! One of the perks of being a demonstrator is that we get to preorder certain things before they are available for customers. I was able to preorder this hostess set - and I am glad becuase I don't often have the opportunity to be the hostess with high enough sales for a Level 3 set!
I used the Dusty Durango and Old Olive markers and applied ink directly to the stamp, "huffed" and
stamped. I did the middle set first, reinked and then did one set on each side. For the two side sets, i only inked up the top portion of the stamp.
Naturally, the inside of the card got to see some ink as well.

Stamps: Kind and Caring Thoughts, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Dusty Durango and Old Olive markers
Cardstock: Dusty Durango, Old Olive, Whisper White
