On a 4″ square piece of Whisper White card stock stamp the plant from the Stampin’ Up! Pocket Silhouettes set by first loading the stamp with Versamark and then loading it with Basic Black ink before stamping it.  Stamped it twice and then heat embossed the images using clear embossing powder and a heat gun.
