Serendipity Stamps - AUGUST Blog Hop #1!



Welcome to Serendipity Stamps first HOP for August!
I used the small Tractor stamp and embossed it on white paper.
For the background I used Distress Oxide inks then wet the 
Bandana stamp and let it sit on the oxides for a few minutes.  
It gave a unique impression!
Finished card is 4 1/4" square.

The HOP Prize is a $20 Serendipity Stamps Gift Certificate 
to a random commenter.  
You can leave comments from Wednesday through Sunday
 and Mary will announce the winner on Monday.

I love the technique you used on the background Miriam and using just the black stamped tractor outline is perfect over the top. x

I know just who will give this card.

lives out in the country and has
the room.
Fantastic card.
