Welcome to the second week of the Cornish Heritage Farms 12 Weeks of Summer Fling! We're focusing on Thomas Kinkade this week so the girls on the hop will have some detailed stamping to share with you today! Full details of the Summer Fling are available here if you haven't seen them already.
I chose the stamp that is perhaps least typical of the Kinkade images in the line when I made my sample for today's blog hop - most of them focus on buildings or landscapes but this one goes up close in the rose garden and is such a good size that you really don't need much else on the card! I used a linen cardstock to give a nice touch of texture. You do need to be careful with textured cardstocks and the Kinkades as they are so detailed that something with too much texture means that you can end up with bits of your image missing as the stamp can't make enough contact with the bumpy bits! I like the CHF Simply Linen as the "weave" is fine enough that you still get plenty of detail from the stamp.
