Card for CAS(E) this Sketch 204

Another card this week using a sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch!

I just bought a Hampton Art Stamp Perfect and when I saw this sketch I knew it would be perfect for the Jan 2016 Stamp of the Month - Beloved Bouquet.  

I bought this set last year but hadn't used it because I have dropped my acrylic blocks a few times when trying to line layering stamps up.   Acrylic blocks and tendinitis just don't go well together. It was so much easier with the Stamp Perfect.

No embellishments on this one, instead I tried out my new CTMH Gold Shimmer Brush.
I had just primed it for the first time and the spots with a lot of gold glitter are covering up a couple of spots where I wasn't quite lined up.  Then I just highlighted different areas of the rose petals and leaf veins without re-priming to get a little less shimmer. 

Supplies Used:

Here's my new stamp positioner, the Hampton Art Stamp Perfect.  

Similar in design to a Misti,  it is a size in between the Mini and the original Misti but the price is way lower.  I really like the way you can centre your card along the bottom.  And the foam mat comes out so you can use thicker stamps, too.   

A great tip I got from a YouTube user - cover the magnets with Washi Tape.  It keeps them from getting damaged if they snap together and if you have any arthritis or tendinitis problems like I do, it is easier to pick them up to reposition them.
