Stamp Something Challenge

Hi, I saw the challenge over at Stamp Something which was 'simply thank you' in homage to Lauren who's style is simple, modern elegance.
I'd just opened my latest arrival from Crafts u Love which were a few new QK dies. The damask was the 1st one I grabbed and went straight to work on this challenge.
I layered black and white linen paper, scalloped the edge then die cut the damask from black pearlised card.
My only thank you stamp is one of the tiny ones from Studio g which fit perfectly inside the centre of the damask shape. It was embossed in black and then filled in with white gelly roll.
It took 24 photos to try to get a half decent shot of this and was almost going to give up when one seemed to be a bit better then the rest and when tested on a post, it was fine. Well, as fine as you can expect with a black on black image!
Hope you like me attempt at 'no frills' simplicity!
