Retire to the garden


The image and sentiment are part of the club stamp set for July from Little Claire. A perfect image for a retirement card. These silhouettes stamp beautifully using a Versafine stamp pad. I use memnto with Copics but it doesn't give a black enough image for silhouettes I have found. The paper is from my scrap pile and I used MB dies with cream linen card. I really like this card I bought at the NEC as a change from kraft.
