Delicate Details

This stamp set is from the SALE-A-BRATION catalog. The pretty edge designs can be used to highlight a card design, or as the focal point as I've done here. I used a resist technique; stamping in VersaMark then embossing in white. Then I sponged on colors with my sponge daubers. You can also use inks and an Aqua Painter, or a brayer.
