Elements of Style

One of my favorite stamp sets is "Elements of Style". I played with it this weekend. I have seen many others use the 'sections' of the design and wanted to do some cards with that. I needed 2 birthday cards for some dear ladies at church and thought these would be just right for them.

All are stamped in Basic Gray and then colored using the blender pen and ink pads. I pressed the ink pad together so that when I opened it there was some ink on the inside of the lid. I used that as my ink for the blender pen. It takes a while but looks nice.
Card Stock: Very Vanilla, Garden Green, Elegant Eggplant, Perfect Plum
Stamp sets: Elements of Style, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Punches: Medium Oval, Scallop Oval

This one is basically the same - just different colors so a different look.

And last but not least - this one is a mosaic.
