Wildflower Shadow Stamping

Happy Saturday, everyone!!  Today's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to find inspiration from Audrie's Favorite Candles Board from Pinterest......I loved these beautiful candles with the simple, monochromatic design.  I couldn't tell what the exact colors were, but I used two gray tones for my card. There are actually two different images here (from Our Daily Bread designs)....the wildflower silhouette, stamped in light gray, is from 'Miss You' and the detailed stamp (and sentiment) in dark gray are from 'Life Is a Gift'....what I love is that the stamps do not match exactly, but I love how the shadow stamping technique looks with them.  The sentiment panel and corner piece were cut out using the ODBD Custom 'Ornate Borders and Flower' Dies and the card base was embossed using the ODBD Faithful Fish Pattern Die and Debossing Plate....though the Jesus fish images were covered, I thought it would make a cool border.  The gray embroidery thread was twirled and twisted a bit before adhering....just trying something different than straight! :)

Wow, I would have never thought of using two stamps that are different to get the shadow effect, but I love it. Beautiful work as always Nancy.
