Auricular Flower

I have two cards today using the Auricular Script stamp. For a large stamp it gives a great impression.
 I used black ink on both, Memento for the first as I coloured with alcohol pens. Versafine with clear embossing powder for the second and coloured with pencils.
For the first I stamped onto white card and when coloured used Tumbled Glass Distress Ink on the edge to tie in with the embossing on the background card.

I love to stamp onto Kraft card but it definitely need the embossing powder to help the stamp stand out. The pencils I used were quite soft so they gave a really good strong colour. I matted with green and black to frame the stamped image and added to a square card.
Many thanks for visiting

These are both striking but it is the second one that really catches my eye, especially with the border stamping far right. The pencils have created a very vibrant effect & I love the white elements of the flower heads. As always your choice of matting colours echoes your focal image's prinipal colours.
