River Rocks and Grass

Today I picked up two stamps that I ordered from Country Lane Crafts in Cloverdale.  I had gone through a couple of stamp manufacturer's websites (Hero Arts and Stampendous) and then phoned Country Lane and they ordered the stamps in for me.  Awesome!!  No expensive shipping fees for me :)

I just couldn't wait to get home and try out my new Silhouette Grasses stamp from Hero Arts.  I have seen a few cards made with it on SCS and had long admired it.  I used the sketch from yesterday's challenge - so much fun!!  This is another clean and simple design.  Hope you like.

"River Rocks and Grass"

Stamps:  Silhouette Grasses (Hero Arts); Whimsical Words (SU!)
Paper:  River Rock, Basic Black, Whisper White (SU!)
Ink:  River Rock, Basic Black (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Black hemp twine, two buttons, sticky strips and dimensionals

I stamped the grasses in River Rock ink onto the Whisper White cardstock and used sticky strips to adhere three strands of black hemp twine around the image.  I tied the two buttons onto pieces of twine and then tied them onto the main panel, using glue dots to hold the buttons in place.

I mounted the main panel onto a frame of Basic Black cardstock (with only 1/4" of black showing on the left hand side only).  I mounted the framed panel onto the card base of River Rock cardstock (bottom corners rounded), popping up the panel to give it more depth.

I stamped the sentiment in Basic Black onto River Rock cardstock, rounded the edges and adhered it to the front of the card.  Quick and easy card!
