Day 4 - Stamping

Earlier this year I put together a little tutorial about stamping to create depth, which is a wonderful technique that is easy to do and only requires a stamp and a couple of ink pads for a great result.  The cards below were made using a single pine tree stamp and several different coloured ink pads.  The branches at the sides of each card are actually created by turning the pine tree stamp on it's side.  I'd love to claim credit for such a brilliant idea but I must confess that it came from my friend Penny who showed it to me last year.
