The Divas Chrissie and Mandi have made some fabulous samples, check them out, if you have a minute!
I made a mask with my embossing board using Eclipse tape ( best thing since sliced bread, oh yeah!) and Graham's embossing board, I scored the 3 squares with a small embossing tool. This made the edges tear until I removed the squares making all the edges softer when I inked them. Cool!
The Chrysanthemum flower is from a really old stamp set from when Lakeland were selling crafty goodies! Oriental vases and swallows, I'm sure you've seen the set before. I stamped the whole image onto eclipse again and cut out the flower. Now using the tape upside down on top of the stamp I masked the rest of the image and just inked the flower. I've always loved that flower:0) I wonder what it would look like turned facing up?..........have to try that one :0) I can see you now turning your head to get a view, I only know that because that's what I did too LOL
The sentiment is from a set by HOTP.
My favourite is the one without......... I think !
