I hope you are all well.
I had a fun time this morning catching up with some of your posts. Then the sun came up and I had to get on with some jobs. I have finished most of the outside jobs so I thought I would have a chat with you all. You know, I feel so blessed to know you guys. I popped over to see what Kate had been up to and I am still giggling after reading her post. The things we do to hide our craft stash buying!!
Today I would like to share 3 cards, all made in the same way but just a variation on the colours and stamps.
All I have done for the main focal pieces on all of these cards is to colour some white card with Distress Inks, stamped the image in black permanent ink, and then removed some of the colour to add high lights. If you have never done this before, just take a small paint brush, paint water onto the inked areas that you wish to remove the colour from and then dab it with a paper towel. Repeat if necessary.
I mixed and matched the vintage cyclist images with the flower images which seemed to be the right height to put side by side. My stamping is a bit hit and miss but hey ho!
This is a really old technique but it is still fun to do especially when there is a lot of bold parts to the stamps image.
Crafty Individuals Stamps used:
Bicycle Embrace CI 186
Tall Wild Flowers CI 185
Just to share, I think the tall wild flowers were my very first Crafty Individuals stamps I ever purchased. It must be about 14 or so years ago!! Lovely classic designs. Nice to go down memory lane now and again.
Thank you for looking
