Congrats ......


This card has been made for the Less Is More Challenge Blog ......


I used a stamp from AAll & Create which was stamped on a piece of white card and coloured with Distress Ink washes and a waterbrush. This was then die-cut with a frame die. The frame was mounted on black card and applied centrally onto the card blank. The cut-outs were then overlayed on foam pads to show the black card at the edges.

The word was stamped in Versafine black ink and die-cut before being stuck in place on the card to finish .....

Dream .....


Made a mail-art postcard for a swap over on UK Stampers Forum ....

I used a piece of greyboard as the base and cut to 6 x 4 inches. I then cut a piece of white card and embossed through an embossing folder after inking one side with Versamark ink. I then heat embossed with clear embossing powder to form a resist and applied Distress inks direct to paper over the non-embossed words.

I then stamped a frame in Archival black several times and stamped a flower in red Stazon. The card was applied to the base and edged with dark blue Versamagic Chalk ink.

The postcard was then sprayed with matt acrylic sealer to protect through the post as it will travel 'naked' through the post to its recipient .....
