This card could have actually be tagged with several different 'topics' but I had to choose - so I went with stamping. It could have also been scrap recovery or die cuts.
The outer lace is an image from the stamp catalog. I used three cool grey copic markers to add shading and the cut out all the holes with the craft knife. Looks just like Battenburg lace. The bamboo was stamped with a clear stamp in solid black. Then I touched on a bit of green Stickles glitter and sealed it with a touch of Glossy Accents.
I used a Nestability die to cut out and emboss the image into this scalloped oval. Then I used distress ink in 'peeled paint' to distress the edges. And finally, I stamped the text scripture with a Stampin' Up stamp.
A moss green folded card base is the backdrop for the whole arrangement.
