If you have two loaves of bread sell one and buy flowers. For although the bread will nourish your body, the flowers will nourish your soul.

Address Labels...They're Not Just For Envelopes Any More

That was the challenge for last Monday's CCEE challenge. Use address labels in some way on a card. I chose to stamp and emboss a large background (Bamboo II) on a sheet of labels. Then when you peel and stick them onto your project, you space them apart a little to allow the background color to show, creating a grid effect. I have to admit I was a little doubtful about this technique, but am rather pleased with how it turned out.

Recipe: stamps- Bamboo II, Oriental Gardens (ginko leaf)...both SU, sentiment (PSX); Ink- black archival, VersaMark; paper- black, off-white; accessories- adhesive backed address labels, black embossing powder.

I was just doing a little BLOG hopping and stopped by your Blog. I'm so glad I did...You have done some lovely things!
I think I just may be copying the idea of using the address labels, I really need an appropriate large stamp.
This card is stunning!
