Make Me Smile Challenge

I find the Art Impressions Girlfriends stamps so much fun to colour!

For this one, I decided to colour it, then cut the whole thing out. (Just for a change.) I tried several backgrounds, but didn’t like any of them. I finally decided on an embossing folder with large dots and an oval centre.

Sounds weird, I know, but I really like the end result. It seems to give a bit of interest to the background. Because I’d used the EF I ended up using, I then couldn’t stamp a greeting. Instead I embossed onto vellum. I really like the end result.

Here’s the (very simple) inside:
