A little Velveteen Stamping

You still have a few days to play along with the Technique Tuesday: Velveteen Stamping challenge!  Remember that there will be digi prizes for the winners!  Since there's still a few days left, I decided to show you a CAS one layer card featuring this technique.  I hope you come and play along with me!

Here's the card~

Details~




For these challenges~





I started by stamping my flourish background with whisper white ink onto a white card.  I then stamped all my images and added my favorite embellishment--sticky back gems!  For the 3, 2, 1 challenge, I used 3 stamp sets, 2 types of sticky back gems, and 1 layer of cardstock! :)  I hope you like it!  And I hope you come and play along with these fabulous challenges--plus, don't forget I have blog candy up for grabs!  Happy stamping! :)
