Ex libris - meaning " from the books of" or "from the library of" .
This stamp has such a beautiful vintage style. It's a background stamp that looks like an old bound book and would look so nice on a notebook cover or ..as a birthday card.
We made one like this at our Friday Card class. With a touch of watercolour painting over the night of Navy ink and a few dimensionals it has a very rich and elegant look.
And here is the Card Recipe:
Stamp sets: Ex Liberis background stamp,
Flower shop, Petite Pansy, hostess Simply Sketched.
Cardstock: Rich Razzleberry, whisper White.
Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Night of Navy.
Tools: Decorative label punch, Pansy Punch
Petite Petal Punch.
Rhinestone jewels, aqua painter.
And then for a deeper darker look I stamped directly onto the Razzleberry card base, added some night of navy and silver decorative labels... A different look completely.
