amuse studio rubber stamps

Sometimes an idea doesn’t always quite work but there usually is a solution or work around!  I wanted to do an emboss resist of the wreath image from the new stamp set, With Love from A Muse Studio.  It’s part of their January Collection – something new awaits you each month and I can’t tell you how exciting it is for me!  I love the current offerings and after seeing what’s coming in February – well, you will love it too!  amuse studio rubber stamps

After watercoloring with my Cherry Splash (amuse studio carries almost 30 colors!) though, the image was super faint and barely visible.  I decided to add a little color and inked up the image in Grass ink and carefully overstamped the embossed image.  It worked perfectly – even with out a stamp positioner – woot woot!  I also added the little heart from the set, inked up in Apple amuse studio ink, as an after thought but I like it.  One of my favorite colors to mat in is a grey toned cardstock – A Muse Studio has several greys and I love the variety but this happens to be a piece of DCWV scrap I had laying around and needed to use up.  I have way TOO much paper!

This week’s Amusing Challenge is all about hearts so I hope you’ll find some time/inspiration and join in on the fun!
