Hugs & Kisses

Howdy friends!

Once again I am on the run, I blame it on some very poor time management recently, oy! I'm tellin' ya, I need to get back on track!

Anywho... I've got another card where I used the double stamping trick in order to get Lulu Ketto to look good directly against that pattern paper background... no way was I going to try and cut out those skinny arms and legs, LOL! This time though, I used the Memento Rich Cocoa because I think it gives the image a softer look than the tuxedo black which is exactly what I wanted to go with this soft and pretty paper that I was using. The rest of the card basically falls under the category of, "when in doubt throw on some flowers". ;)

Ok, I reeeeeeally need to get moving... TTFN!

What do you mean by the 'double stamping technique' to get LuLu to show up on the patterned paper?
