It’s Friday already!!! Another week has flown by.
I have been playing with the amazing new Giovanna Zara Illustration Stamp. To be honest I am so addicted to these stamps. I just love all of the stamps in the range.
What crossed my mind the other day about these stamps is that they can be used for any age group. Now, if you are like me born in the mid 60’s or have daughters, daughters-in-laws, nieces or friends born around that time, 50 is fast approaching if it hasn’t arrived already.
So, with 50 in mind, I wanted to make a card, no butterflies or flowers, although I love them, I wanted something with a bit of glamour and bling to suit this age group and the occasion.
I also thought this card would work for Mothers Day or Valentines Day.
This is the card I came up with.
50 and fabulous!
To make this card
Stamp the image of the lady using Black Archival Ink and apply a mask using liquid masking fluid.
Dab some Seedless Preserves Distress Ink onto a plastic file wallet and spritz with water to dilute.
Just a thought, If you are using just Distress Ink, applied with a sponge, on the background, a paper mask will work fine.
Take your stamped piece of card and swish it in the ink.
Repeat this if necessary, drying between swishes.
Leaving the mask on, stamp the English script using Black or Plum Archival Ink.
Peel off the rubbery mask and color the image.
I used water color crayons for this project.
Stamp the sentiment onto a piece of white card stock and trim to size.
Make up the card as seen using pretty backing papers and embellishments.
