Anchored, Elegant and Sweet

 It has been a fun-filled week of projects at 
AUTHENTIQUE PAPER
as we've teamed up with  Sweet Stamp Shop!
I've paired a couple of their stamps with the new
Anchored & Classique: Elegant Collections to create these cards

First up, I have a rather masculine style
I cut a portion of the Anchored Enhancement paper to use as the backdrop for my 
initial stamping.  From the "Anatomy of Love" Stamps,I used the cluster of rounded 
squares and stamped them haphazardly across the paper with a black Staz On ink.  

Next, I stamped the image onto several designs found in the Anchored 6X6 Paper Bundle.
 I hand-cut the small squares and then adhered them over the matching stamped 
images on the paper.  For extra dimension, I hand stitched a few X's over the 
largest squares with a stormy blue thread.

For this next card, I combined two stamp sets
I used the Waterlily stamp and sentiment and then the leaves found in the
 "What's For Dinner" Set.  I used the neutral side of the Elegant Foundations 2 paper
 and stamped the lily image in both VersaMagic Midnight Black  and Sea Breeze
I hand-cut the images out and then arranged them over the  Elegant Journal Card.

The leaves were stamped with a VersaMagic Bamboo ink and then adhered. 
I also used the Midnight Black ink to add color to the wooden butterfly. 
Sweet Stamp Shop stamps give you a nice, clean image with a variety of ink types.
