COMPENDIUM OF CURIOSITIES VOL 2 - TECHNIQUE 1, CUSTOM FOAM STAMPS

Having already entered Linda's challenge this week, I was surprised at the comments I received as they were negative.  I couldn't understand why until I went through all the other entries and saw that none of them had used the technique I had, DER!!! I read foam stamps as felt stamps and thought, I've just done that on Tim's Creative Chemistry 101 so I can use the same stamp. Can you see where I am coming from yet? Non clever me didn't even bother to look at page 66 in the Compendium of Curiosities Vol 2, which is our challenge page, so today, I am washing egg off my face. I have emailed Linda and asked her to remove my entry because I obviously now realise it doesn't conform to the rules. When will I ever learn!!!
I hope this card will be correct:

Joanne, you're a trooper, making TWO gorgeous works of art this week! I'm so glad you had time to go back and do the challenge (and do hold on to that first card-- chances are, you'll be able to link it to a different CC2C challenge in the coming weeks.

This card is lovely!
