One Layer Wonder-100% Stamped!

Hello friends!
If you are in the mood for stamping, then this is the perfect post for you.
 If you see this stamp set "My precious", you might think that you need to COLOR the images?

Well, not necessarily.
You see, I love coloring and I am not against coloring at all. However, there are times that you simply CAN do things in a different way, so why not?
Today's card is all about simple stamping and no coloring.
you are my rock

About this card:
1. use the backside the smaller diamond stamps. Because of the way the stamp was cut, they are perfect for back-stamping!
2. mask the borders. Just cut 4 even strips of paper and adhere them with Washi Tape. BEST DIY masking!
3. stamp in multiple colors. This is when MISTI comes in handy! It CAN be done without MISTI ( just be brave, aim and stamp!).
4. Squeeze out a small amount of Stickles on scrap paper, apply Stickles the diamonds with a paint brush
PS: if you still need a visual about using the backside of stamps, here is my You Tube video to help you understand how I stamped this card.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
