Potato Stamping



Hello Friends

I  made this card for the challenge over at the Craft Stamper blog. This month the challenge is to use a potato. Yes that's right a potato! We have to cut a shape out of a potato and stamp with it. I was not sure how that was going to work. It was much easier than I thought. So I made a flower and leaf shape as best I could. I need to work on my carving skills :) 


  I used Faber - Castell Gel Sticks  and just rubbed the stick right on to the potato and stamped. I was pretty happy with the overall design that I had made. I used my Martha Stewart Hydrangea Punch to add additional flowers around the card. I also added some gemstones on some of the flowers.

 

 I chose a sentiment from a stamp set from Unity called Imagine It.  I really like this set I find myself using it a lot. Once the card was complete I attached it to a Kraft card base. I left some space at the bottom and added 3 tiny little flowers. I really like the way this turned out :)
