I love stamping, but I also love my dies. I love how the color of the paper provides a rich color background which can easily be shaded and highlighted with a variety of sponging and copic techniques. The end result has so much dimension, texture, and richness. The effect can be just as beautiful as stamping! This particular card has a fun doodled border, dark and light inks to provide the depth to the paper pieces, Copics to add texture, and just the right amount of glitz with Sakura gel and Spica pens, and Stickles.
