Miss You - Stretching Your Stamps

Hi everyone! Marina here! For today's card, I wanted to use the theme for the current Lawnscaping Challenge and taking this opportunity to share with you an idea how another way of using the gumball machine from the Sweet Smiles set.

So, I started off by masking away the balls in the machine and used the Distress Ink in Antique Linen to stamp as I want the border to be as light as possible.

 I like using my copic markers when I want my images to turn our sharp and vibrant. In the final image, you will notice that I've covered the brown area with some gold stickles. I thought this would as some nice shimmering touch to the card.

I've coloured a white paper with pink copic markers before using the string of hearts die from the Stitched Journal Card die set.

As for the sentiment, I took it from the Chit Chat set and masked away the bubble around the words before stamping.

I hope it will inspire you to find more looks for your stamps! Cheers!
