The stamps are from Elusive Images
Brocade Backgrounds (UA4SP0239)
Birthday Words (UA5GW0257)
I have stamped the image on white slightly textured cardstock, partly off the page in Black Archival ink and heat embossed with clear EP.
To get the sentiment in the right place I have used a stamp position.
I have to say that despite my reservations of stamping straight onto the card - I love the effect!
Thanks LIM for pushing me!
