Shine Brightly


Thanks to the recent sale at Simon Says Stamp I got a few sets of Lawn Fawn stamps that have been on my wish list for ages including the set I used today - Lunar Lights.  This card is for the current Lawnscaping challenge to use texture on your card. I found some mulberry paper that I bought about 5 years ago and thought it would make great paper lanterns.  It was actually pretty easy to stamp on too.  I was worried that the rough, crinkly texture would make for an uneven image but they stamped beautifully!


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill
Other Paper:  (Mulberry PAper) The Stamp Pad CoStamps:  (Lamps & sentiment from Lunar Lights) Lawn Fawn
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black)  Tsukineko, (Daffodil Delight) Stampin' Up
Twine:  (Charcoal) The Twinery

I don't know how it works but mulberry takes ink so beautifully - maybe it's made out of magic like washi tape? Not enough coffee yet :)
Love the layered sentiment - it glows! - and the perfectly draped twine :)
