Thanks, Val!! Wow!! An additional prize just for commenting. How easy is that!! Now on with my Design Team Card.
I stamped good old Will (Shakespeare) on glossy white paper. I inked the stamp with Vintage Sepia (Versa Fine) first...don't stamp yet! Then go around the edge of the stamp with a black ink pad....now you can stamp! I tore the image out; distress it with Vintage Photo Distress ink (Ranger) and added a torn oval from black CS.
The background is made with Crafter's Workshop Template: Numbers Collage and spray inks. (See my tutorial here.)
I added a great big bow from bronze satin ribbon that is befitting The Bard. Don't for get to leave a comment here and with the other Design Team Members and participants to be eligible for the extra prize!!! Join in the fun and create an Anything Goes project and link it up on The Stampsmith Challenge Blog!! Can't wait to see your project!
