Beate stamp

More sympathy cardswith the stamp I call my 'Beate stamp'. It is a Stampers' Anonymous stamp, but I call it 'Beate' because the first card I made with it was a birthday card for the infamous and fabulous Beate Johns. I see this beautiful image and think of her.
Image was stamped in VersaMark then heat set with detail gold embossing powder. Embossed swirls were made with a Cuttlebug machine. 7gypsies Fleur Noir paper left over from the project three posts down.
The little metail circular detail piece is a 7gypsies turn around photo turn. A piece of Basic Grey paper was punched with a 5/8" circle punch & adhered to the photo turn. Ranger's Crackle Accents was applied, sealing the paper punch in place & allowed to dry & crackle. I pressed my finger into a brown ink pad (Ranger's Archival Ink in Coffee) and rubbed the crackled surface, emphasizing the cracks. Love this product for its speed & convenience in achieving a beautiful cracked surface. Ribbon - May Arts.
