One of the cards we did at my last stamp camp was a simple elegant one.  I really liked the design – it was inspired by one Debbie Olsen did earlier.  I decided I liked it so much that I would make a bunch and just stamp different verses on them…so I’d  have a little stash of them for whenever the need arose.  You never know when you’ll need an encouraging card quickly!  I always like to have a few on hand for those times.

So here’s what I came up with….I tried it in black with the PTI Vintage Cream Pigment Ink.  And I was less than impressed with the end result.  It doesn’t really look cream to me at all.  Perhaps on a different color cardstock it would look more cream?  I don’t know.  But I ended up switching to a cream base and using black ink on it instead.
