Underwater World


Over on UK Stampers Forum we have a very popular and successful monthly swap.  We call it a postcard swap and members have to make an arty postcard on a theme capable of being posted without any further protection to it's swap partners address !  The July theme is 'Underwater'. Why not visit and see what has been made so far?

I started my postcard by cutting a 6 x 4 inch piece of stout white card as the base.  Onto this I stuck a piece of Gelli Plate background I had made whilst playing with the plate and trimmed this to size.  I thought the colours looked very underwaterish (is that a word?).

I then used Stazon solvent inks and Memento dye inks to stamp a number of foliage stamps (Crafty Individuals), a fish stamp and the word stamp were also used (Third Coast).

I have also used Posca pens to colour in parts of the word and the little shoal of fishes.  Once complete I edged the card with Versamark ink and heat embossed with dark blue embossing powder.

Finally I sprayed the whole thing with a matt acrylic sealant to protect it when sent through the post. Don't know who will get it yet until the end of the month.

Red, White & Blue

It's ages since I have posted but life has been hectic and I have had a lot to deal with.  This is the first time I have posted for ages, so saying hello to  those out there in blogland.

This one layer card was crafted to meet the Less is More Challenge blog No.232 whose theme is masculine.

I used a white square card blank and stamped with Artemio stamps the union jack in Memento ladybug and paris dusk inks.

The sentiment was then stamped in Versafine black ink using a Papertrey Ink stamp.
