Try collage style stamping

I'm a little bit fancy, a little bit rustic, a little bit sparkly, a little bit sponged, a little bit metallic, a little bit soft.

When planning this card, I wanted to feature Stampin' Up! shimmer paper. It is very durable and beautiful, with a subtle shimmer. It takes ink beautifully, so I inked a big collage stamp and then added color with a sponge from three different ink pads. In person, you can still see the shimmer plus the black and the colors.

Then the brads, the burlap, the ruffle, it definitely demonstrates the collage style that is so fun and popular right now!

Just pick one component you want to feature, then build on it. With collage, you can't really go wrong!
Happy Stamping,
Dee Tollaksen
