I've always admired the work of Nancy Maxwell James, so cased one of her cards for the Created byHand challenge on Love Quotes. This is, after all, a stamp designed by her.
I wanted to fade all the colours, particularly the orange mat card, so distressed everything with the dabber (even the brads). I don't think you can see the lacy paper around the feature stamp unless you go in for a close up. I spritzed a text stamp which has left the diagonal white marks on the background.
