A Day to Celebrate

Here's another example of a bright idea that looked great in my head, but the reality came out vastly different . . .

My plan was to stamp an all-over image in VersaMark and then randomly overstamp it with my favorite splotchy image inked with a few bright colors.  I'd forgotten that die inks will never reproduce well over colored cardstock.  So my next attempts will be done on white or cream cardstock.  Stay tuned . . .
