Stamping with layers

This week I've been experimenting with a new set of overlay stamps that seem to be rapidly growing in popularity. This set is made by Alte&New and came as a freebie with a crafty mag. I have to say it was a bit of a head-scratcher for me to begin with and it took a couple of goes to stamp the additional layers in the right places. It also helped when I gave my clear block a good clean so that I could actually see through it again! *hangs head in shame*

The ink pads used were all versa colour - pink, old rose and orchid for the roses and celadon, green tea and evergreen for the leaves. The sentiment is from Craftwork cards and was also stamped in versa pink and embossed with wow clear sparkle embossing powder.

This card is destined for the following challenges;

Less is More - pastel colours
Simon Says Stamp; Monday - Emboss it, Wednesday - Flowers, Work it Wednesday - Flowers
Penny Black at allsorts - Anything goes
