A dear friend in Tennessee (Hi Valeri!) taught me how to stamp and she taught me this great technique, I love how it looks. It is hard to see the little white spots clearly on this, but they were made by dipping the rubber stamp in a little bit of bleach and then stamping it on the paper. It gives it a soft old look. The paper and stamps are stampin up the ribbon is just some I had. The flowers were colored in with pencils. The edges were roughed up and inked.
