Here's what I finally settled on:
I love how I can create a pattern that makes it look as though I've used Island Indigo paper when I've really only stamped in two colours on Whisper White card stock. To create the 2-tone blue, I stamped one row in "full" ink and then stamped off once before stamping the second row.
I think it looks like fabric (which is the idea of Ikat I suppose) and decided to have the sentiment look like a tag on a gift. I can create simple, quick tags using my Chalk Talk Framelits.
Here is Reason #2:
Stampin' Up's Photopolymer stamps
stick to the acrylic blocks.
I mean REALLY stick! No falling off after they've been inked up or while you're cleaning them! It's fantastic!!!!
