At first, the name of this challenge (ODBD HERE)threw me a little. Could there be such a thing as overstamping???? ...as in, stamping too much? I think not!
However, the theme was about stamping over another image, which I enjoy doing anytime. It's a nice way to provide a background for any sentiment. For this card, I used the rose image from the Hero Arts set, "Two Birds" and mounted it over a Basic Grey print. I used a charcoal solid from the same set which I placed on a diagonal, added some paper piercing on the corners, and attached a floral "gem" in the upper left. I finished it off with a bow of charcoal and red embroidery floss strands.
I also created this card for the Speedy the Cat challenge on Mark's Finest Papers HERE featuring paper piercing and the use of black, white and one other color. I "sneaked" in a bit of red, but otherwise it is mostly black, white and tan.
