Impression Obsessions blog has a challenge every two weeks. This weeks challenge is to use one of their background stamps so I used their light house on a photo. I dowloaded this sky photo, stamped with archival black ink and on the larger photoscape I took a nib and added some marvy ink to some of the image. The second one has their flourish backgrounder with a smaller version of the photoscape. She does a random drawing for each challenge and a chance to win free merchandise so check it out.

Pyramid cards using nestabilities

After seeing Sherry Cheevers blog I had to try this. Using nestabilities and several copies of the same image I made these cards. No stamping invloved just lots of patience trying to get everything lined up correctly on each layer. The yellow flower one is from Twissted papers, they have gorgeous downloads that work well for this. Sherry has a video on her blog and some more samples of this.
