Extraordinary Script Collage

 Wow, what color intensity! Today, I used several of the Aladine-Seth Apter Dye Ink Sprays as a background, then silver heat embossed the Vintage Script Collage over the top. Adding the You Are Extraordinary stamp finishes this card off with panache! Both stamps and the sprays may be found at Technique Junkies here:

Monochromatic Bear

 Our Bear stamp is fierce! My monochromatic card uses the Bear as the focal image, the Splendor of Nature Sentiment stamp, and the Leaf Circles in the background. Doesn't this make an awesome masculine card? You can find the stamps here:
