Howdy

Collage stamping is a technique I enjoy seeing on cards.
However, I've only tried the technique one other time, that I can remember.
(Check out all the lovely entries with collage stamping.)
I'm also entering this into the Simon Says Stamp & Show: A Very Strict Challenge - Anything Goes.


Supplies
Stamps:  (PTI)-On The Farm, Larger Than Life, Pretty Peonies-Anniversary Set, Happy Harlequin
Inks:  Distress Inks & PTI
Other:  Buttons, Twine, Glue Dots

Thanks for your visit.
Happy crafting!
-Martha

I'm not surprised this is as pretty as it is, Martha!! Although it's not your usual look, you've layered the images beautifully and combined the colors as you always do... expertly. Your eye for color and design is marvelous and it is proven here as you step out of your comfort zone!
