Alice Card

Hi everyone,

Here is another card made with the new Pictorial Invoice stamp from Crafty Individuals. I mentioned in yesterday’s post about adding the little vintage girl to the Pictorial Invoice image.  I think it has an Alice in wonderland feel about it especially with the flamingo.

The base of the focal piece is white coated card stock, coloured with Distress Inks and then stamped with black Staz-On.  The little girl, was stamped onto coated card stock, coloured and cut out. Some of the smaller elements were coloured in with diluted ink using a paint brush to make them stand out more.

I wasn’t keen on the rose in the top left hand corner being a peachy colour so I stamped the rose again onto white card stock, coloured it pretty pink and cut it out and then attached it with foam tabs. It wasn’t planned but I think by decoupaging the rose, it balances out the little girl.

For some more thoughts and ideas using this stamp, please see this post HERE.

Crafty Individuals stamps used:

Pictorial Invoice CI 480
Childhood Friendship Memories CI 277
Distress Inks

Below are the links to all of the new CI stamps. The reason I am adding this is because they are currently at a really great offer price but I am not sure how long for. I wouldn’t want crafty friends to miss out.

Quick links for Crafty Individuals new stamps.

Pictorial Invoice CI 480  (as seen above)
Vintage Postmarks CI 481 Great for backgrounds and mixed media projects.
Seeing Stars Background Stamp CI 479  This is great stamped with paint.
A Flock of Birds CI 478   Great for backgrounds and mixed media projects.
A vintage Postcard CI 477  Great size for focal pieces and adding embellishments too or using for background purposes.
Christmas Angel of Love (Linda Edwards Designs) CI 476
Christmas Holly Bird (Linda Edwards Designs) CI 475
Both of the new Linda Edwards Designs are great stamped red on white for a lovely  Scandinavian /Nordic feel.

Will be back soon with some more projects using the new stamps.

Take care,

Flo x
