LIM week 135 - use a rubber stamp

 For the Less is More challenge this week you need to use a rubber stamp and they would also like to see water colours. I didn't use water colours, but a Penny Black & More teamie introduced me to stamping with H20s, so this is my first attempt at that technique. I used Poppy poem from PB. You can't see the sheen from the H20s in the first photo too well, but this second photo I think captures it better. I mounted it onto the famous "tied together" embossing folder, which I am glad I didn't have to pay silly money for on ebay, because they just reissued it!
I'd also like to enter this card into the Poppy challenge over at the Stamping Sensations challenge this month, I have a feeling it won't be the last that I enter LOL!
 I then did a second card which was inspired by Amy's card here - tilting the jar for a change. I used some Clare Curd stamps with the jar, adding the tiny "bags" wording to the tag.

Both lovely Lynn, needless to say it's the Poppy that does it for me, but on both the shimmer of the H2o's shows up beautifully, not easy with a photo.

Thanks so much for sharing with us at Stamping Sensations challenge.

Super cards - and I'd also spotted that Tied Together has been reissued. Ha, I bet there are a few folk who bought up massive stocks of that folder to drip feed onto EBay absolutely kicking themselves now!

Hugs, Di xx
