Today I am sharing another card I have made with the brand new Vintage Bird rubber stamp set …….oh, and my brand new Watering Can Wendy Vecchi ink!
I love how this turned out as the using the grey archival ink means I have achieved a lovely soft look.
I had great fun using masks to create the illusion that the stamps are scattered over the card and over each other. I made the inner match too:
I used my trusty Distress Inks to colour my pretty stamps. You could use alcohol based markers for colouring but you would have to use a different ink to stamp the images.
If you want to try this for yourself then please check out my latest tutorial on You Tube. I talk about simple masking…….although the cutting out was a little tricky! Especially of the smaller stamp. I do give you a top tip about what to do if your mask is a bit fiddly to cut out……ha ha …….so you will have to watch the video to find out….what a tease!
You could easily make this card using other stamps but I do recommend that you pop along to see the latest stamps from rubberdance.com! Vintage Birds (B2-L) has lots of lovely stamps to help you create gorgeous projects. While you are over there you could check out the blog which has lots of lovely ideas and there is a brand new colour challenge going on where you can win stamps too!!!!
Ooops….almost forgot the Cutting Guide…..
Grey Card Base 11 1/2" x 8" scored and folded at 5 3/4"
White Card (Cut 2) 7 3/4" x 5 1/2"
I am in the middle of making a cake for a friends 50th birthday so I had better go! I am on to the fun part of decorating. I will share it with you later (after she has seen it!)
Hope you all have a really fun weekend and manage to find time to get creative. Thank you for popping by X
