I started by cutting a 3 1/2 inch circle from a piece of scrap card stock to make a mask. Next I cut and folded an 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch white card base. After taping the mask in place, with Distress Ink Squeezed lemonade, I sponged the entire circle. Then while leaving a bright spot in the middle, I sponged around it with Distress Ink Dried Marigold. I finished the outside edge of the circle with Distress Ink Ripe Persimmon.
Rather than using a solid image stamp, I chose to us an open image for an entirely different effect. The image was stamped with Ranger Archival Ink Jet Black. For a final touch I used foam tape to mount the sentiment. The dotted paper you see behind the card actually isn't part of the card -- just used to make the white card stand out.
Wishing you wonderful hours of stamping!
