    Ha, guess what I had been doing tonight prior to reading this post. Yep, stamping an image and adding shading using coloured pencils and OMS. To bad I did not use any PTI stamps although I did use PTI ink for my base stamping…
    Love your card and your clever use of your dies.

    Your shading appeared simple but turned out beautifully. Here, one can take a small stamp and easily make something different. Ah, you not only taught us how to stamp w/color but also to view stamps with an open eye to change!

    Thank you for giving a technique to center the stamped image on the die cut. This has always been a challenge with the solid dies from PTI. Beautiful card.

    Thank you so much for your idea how to center a stamp onto the die cut. I have always struggled with this and felt my die cuts were not the way I wanted them to look. I can’t wait to try your method.
    The double parasol is adorable and great hints about coloring the flower stamps as well.
    Beautiful card!
