For this challenge, I got out a new Clarity stamp - Wrought-Iron tree.

I stamped it onto white card using a Versafine stamp pad, then edged the card with the same stamp using second and third impressions only. The background was stamped with the top of the same stamp, but using Versamark. I then used Perfect Pearls (in Perfect Pearl) to bring out the stamping. I matted everything together and finished with some white ribbon.

I hope you can join us this week.

Divas by Design where anything goes,
Ditzy Craftymess where anything goes,

Allsorts where it's 'free and easy February',
