Sometimes a stamp really needs no help at all to be the star of a card. The Penny Black stamp, Resplendent, is one such stamp. Although the whole stamp is quite large I have just used a section of it to create this pink and blue panel. Resplendent is stamped in pink and the little flourish from the Gratitude set is stamped in blue. I added both blue and pink sponging and a mat before adding the sentiment, also from the Gratitude set, to the card base.

I had a chance to play with the elaborate Paisley stamp again yesterday so check back again this week to see what I came up with.
