Card using stamping technique.

After browsing the internet, I came across various pretty cards using the stamping technique. I was a bit reluctant to make an investment buying stamps, inks and stuff. So, remembered a trick taught to me in school using different vegetables and fruits and decided to use the same for this creation.  
              I have used okra / ladyfinger (veggie) and a cotton ear bud to create stamps , flowers made from pamphlets received alongwith  newspapers, and the message tag from an old wedding invitation card. Recycled few things which would have otherwise gone in the bin. Hope you like it.

Just a matter of 30 minutes!!!

Stamping effect...
