Stamped for a change

I've not done a stamped card for a while, this is a Clarity stamp. I love this allium but I wanted different. I've used a metallic ink which is really meant for embossing. It's a four colour pad and I stamped each head twice moving the stamp a little to achieve the multi colour I was looking for. I had to wait for ages for the ink to dry but well worth the wait as I did get the metallic finish that I wanted. The mat is a blue metallic textured paper picking out the blue in the ink. Continuing my metallic feel the base card is a dull metallic gold to pick up the colours I've used in the stamp. I've also stamped the sentiment using "thinking of you" so it can be used for sympathy or when you just need to show you care. I mounted the sentiment on the same textured metallic paper and then again on a mid purple/lilac paper which I inked to get it matching. The lace is from one of my favorite carts Ribbons and Rosettes with some narrow matching ribbon from my stash. I hope you like my different kind of card. Thanks for looking.
