Getting more out of your stamps

Welcome to my Friday post, where I share a project that I've designed for 
 
Today's card was made with Everyday Expressions, in an unusual way. 
I inked up the back of several stamps in three colours to stamp my background, stamping off with each colour. Then, I went back and stamped the corresponding image overtop, stamping off again sometimes.


I trimmed my stamped panel and adhered it to my card, stitching it in place. I stamped a sentiment and then adhered a diecut frame, embossed with a woodgrain impression plate and wrapped with twine & buttons, with dimensional adhesive.

I'm linking these up to this week's Simon Says Stamp Challenge: use a rubber or clear stamp.
 
Thanks for looking!
