Romeo and Juliet

I have a fondness for Shakespeare that my co-blogger Sandra finds borderline “Wacko”. This, of course, just eggs me on to spout off more quotes from my muse Willy.  So how amused was I when Hero Arts came out with a Romeo and Juliet stamp set complete with Shakespeare quotes.  This stamp set was clearly meant for Valentine’s Day and checking my calendar, I see that I am more than a “day late and a dollar short” (another book I could use for the Simon Says Stamp challenge) for that occasion.   No matter, I made two cards anyway.

I am also very excited about the Marble Layering stamp from Waffle Flower that I used to create the background.  I had seen this stamp set at Creativation and ordered it as soon as it was available.  Of course, marbleized paper is available with less cuss words than I used to get these stamps lined up, but you can never achieve the exact ink colour match that I got by inking my own marble background.

Supplies:  Hero Arts Romeo and Juliet stamp set, Layering Mrble stamp set from Waffle Flower, Quote Tag from Kaisercraft Storybook Collection, Ken Oliver pen nib,
