How I Stretch My Stamps at Virginia Lu's Blog

The talented Virginia Lu is sharing again - she's presenting free lessons on stretching your stamps.  And there's a challenge - enter your project and you could win.  This first lesson concerns using a partial image or part of a background stamp.  Here's my card:

I liked cutting off the width of my hexagon stamp.  This allowed me to add pearls in the white spaces which might not have worked had I not used a partial image.

Supplies:  Cardstock: Marco's Paper, Recollections; Ink: Versa Magic Purple Hydrangea; Stamps: CTMH Wicked and For Every Occasion; Pearls: Recollections.
