Opalite Thistle (Scottish Borders Stamping)

Wow, it's been a while since I've updated my blog!

Here is a card I did using a Technique Junkie technique using Opalite pads. Basically I rubbed the Opalites on then sponged dye inks on. I stamped the thistle on the background in black and white inks. The stamp is from Scottish Borders Stamps. Joyce has tons of Celtic, English, Scottish, Wales, adoption stamps. Check out the website.

The Thistle is a Scottish symbol. Since DH is a Scot and DD studied in Scotland, I thought it would be a fun card to send her.

Next I stamped the large Thistle on a square and small on smaller squares, I colored with Prisma Colored pencils and blended with Gamsol and blending stubs. I edged the squares with silver Krylon leafing pen.
