Pattern Building with Small Stamps

I do like thinking up new patterns and building them up using these stamps from Sam Crowe and Claritystamp.
Trim a piece of stencil card to 6.75” x 6.75”. Mark a line 2.5cm from the bottom then two more at 2.5cm intervals above the first. Using the solid square from Sam Crowe’s don’t be such a square stamp set add stamping in Distress Oxides down the centre (from top to bottom: Dusty Concord, Seedless Preserves, Wilted Violet).
Add stamping either side in Picked Raspberry and Worn Lipstick Oxides using the same stamp.
Continue the pattern outwards until the row is complete. Trim the card back further to 15.8cm x 15.8cm and erase the pencil lines.
Using three of the swirl stamps add gold embossing over three of the squares.
Move the stamps and repeat by stamping in Versamark ink and heat embossing with detail gold powder.
Add the topper to a 7” x 7” black card blank.
To finish, add one of Leonie’s word stickers across the stamping.
