Faux Humble Artist's Swap card

I thought I was going to get a jump on creating my Humble Artist's swap card for June 10th. I created the guidelines again and thought they would be challenging.

Well, this card meets all of the guidelines, but is just too simple for this swap! There had to be 8 layers of paper in one place; 2 different embellisments; paper from our NEW Summer Idea Book; Versamark ink used and there had to be at least 6 different stamped images.

The Versamark was used on the Sweet Leaf strip that is stamped with the square/dot pattern. I first stamped it in Tulip and then stamped again with Versamark and embossed with clear powder.

The six stamped images and 8 layers are also pretty clear to this will just not cut it. So, expect to see something much more complicated, posted sometime in June or July.

All supplies are Close To My Heart, unless noted.
