Inktober day 7 - Layered Letters

Its day 7 already - one whole week into October and the weather is certainly letting us know that winter will be on its way pretty soon. So I opted for some more summery shades for today's offering made using the layered letters stamp set.
I particularly like this set because it comes with two base stamps, the rectangle I used here and an oval too and these are made sized  to perfectly house the letters of the alphabet and the symbols that come in the set.

The two step stamping, layering of the letters over those base shapes allows the appearance of dimension without the bulk and with the ink colour variations available the options are endless for monochrome, tone on tone or  contrasting colour ways and because it is a photo polymer set, it is so easy to see where you are stamping.

For this card I chose to team layered letters with another stamp set to complete the sentiment of the card but it is so versatile and great for spelling out names on personalised projects.  I layered the stamped panel onto matted card in  the colours I has used and added a bow made from a piece of lace trim to finish.

No idea yet what project  tomorrow will bring, a new day and a clean sheet of paper
Until next time take care.
