At this moment, I really like the Velveteen Stamping technique. I love the softness of the colors and the elegant look of the images. (Check out this video on how this technique is done.) The design for this card was inspired by Jennifer McGuire. The stamps used are Hero Arts: Luscious Pattern Flowers CL508, Designer Butterflies CL115, and Lotus Background CG349. The inks are Hero Arts Shadow inks: Soft Pink and Bubble gum Mid-tone ink. I embossed the card base with Sizzix embossing folder: Dots & flowers Set 655838.
I also used the Velveteen technique on this next card and it was inspired by the card that my husband gave me for our anniversary. (Forgot to take a picture on the inspiring card) The stamps are Hero Arts: Lotus Background CG349 and Earth Flowers CL428. I used Hero Arts mid-tone shadow ink Butterbar for the flowers. I didn't have any brown paper that I like, so I inked the edges with Cup O Joe mid tone ink. The sentiment was stamped with the same ink, also.
