GinaK Sneak #4: Gleefully Yours

Day 4 of GinaK January sneaks
Today, I am showing a card using the Gleefully Yours stamp set.
Once I saw this stamp set, I had a few ideas in my head.  I wanted this to be a less is more kind of card.  As I started to create it on normal card stock, it just didn't look right.  So, I grabbed a nice textured water color paper.  What you need to remember about stamping on this kind of paper, is that your image really needs to have a nice coat of ink on it.  Water color paper will absorb some of the ink, so use a nice wet ink pad (not a dried up one).  The black is Memento, the yellow is actually SU! & the rest of the colors are Palette inks.  I eyeballed the placement of the music notes, if you are too nervous to eyeball it, I would suggest using a tool like the stamp-a-majig.  
Thank you all for all of the warm comments you have left me this week!  You all are amazing!!
