Layered stamping

Challenge 103 on No time to stamp? is to overstamp a sentiment over other stamping - something that's also called for on 365 day 175: Stampin' Saturday - layered stamps.

As no patterned paper has been used for this card, I'm linking for PaperPlay challenge 34.

The background paper is BG porcelain - various shades of pink - beautiful in itself. I stamped randomly on to this using a favourite Dawn Bibby stamp that has swirls and dots - I love using this stamp for backgrounds - which is why I'm linking for this week's Stamp Something: favourite stamp. I used Versamark so that it showed, but just like a watermark effect (Alphabet challenge blog W is for ... watermark), so that I could then stamp the sentiment over it and emboss with detail silver. I'm disappointed that the scan doesn't show the silver embossing too well - hope I might be able to replace with a photo tomorrow (flash one wouldn't do any better this evening). Neither do the little pink gems in the middle of the flowers and at the ends of the swirls show up too well on the scan.

On CBC challenge CBCC103 is Versamark, so I'm showing this card there as well.
