Love this card. You really showcase the magic of this technique !!
Oh this one is so beautiful too! Very interesting in detail.
Hi, Anna-Karin! What a beautiful, soft, delicate card! And a stunning layout, too! Love that you pulled colors straight from the photo for the layout. And that row of flowers is perfect! :-)
Oh Anna-Karin you shadows create fabulous dimension to your card! Fabulous work!!
Love the shadow stamping, pretty colors too, neat background
Lots of overstamping in this one! I love the way you stamped and embossed the background. The bird and flowers look great too. TFS. Daria

Another sample card for my WSW11 challenge called Layers of Ink, using three different angles of the technique of overstamping/shadow stamping.
1.The background is a left over from the layout on the second page. It's a technique Ali Edwards showed on her blog a few months ago. The Classic Fabric Design stamp was stamped on kraft paper with cream acrylic paint. Then it was stamped again with Versamark, overlapping it a little, and embossed with clear UTEE. I didn't use a stamp positioner, since precision is not so important for this. It turned out looking very similar to my grandmother's wallpaper on the photo in the layout and even has a similar texture. Pretty cool.
2. The focal panel of the card was inked and stamped with Weathered Wood Distress Ink. The flower was stamped with chalk ink and then re-stamped with Weathered Wood, making sure I stamped it a bit to the side to create a shadow.
3. The bird was stamped with Antique Linen Distress Ink and then restamped with the stamp partially covered in Brushed Cordoroy. Since I used a cling stamp, and needed precision, I used a stamp positioner. If you use a clear stamp this is not necessary. TFL!!
Supplies: Stamper's Anonymous Tim Holtz flower and bird stamp; Hero Arts Classic Fabric Design, Artistic Outpost background stamp; Tim Holtz Sizzix tag and label die cut; Distress Ink: Antique Linen, Weathered Wood, Brushed Corduroy; Versamagic Sand ink; lace trim; twine.
