Hi Everyone, a little more stamping, I saw a tutorial on craft TV and decided to try it, I don't think it was successful, but I thought why not show you? Anyhow, the technique was to use distress inks and spray water on the stamps before stamping, which I did, but I didn't have a fine spray and I think a little too much water spread further than I wanted, but as hubby liked it (he may be biased LOL) I decided to use them as cards. I added them to a DL size card. I have SO much to learn about stamping! I wonder if I have the patience? On a wet, windy, wintery day in July seems I do!
I didn't know what colours to use, so decided to have a look on the web at what colour combos people used for this stamp, I found what I liked HERE,
stamps - Altenew Majestic Blooms
inks - Distress inks
carved pumpkin, ripe persimmon, rusty hinge
tumbled glass, broken china, mermaid lagoon
sentiment - magazine freebie
We had a visitor this week, he has been a visitor before and stays a long time, nearly half an hour a time. Yep! we have a lot of ants in the lawn, his favourite snack I believe. It's the Green Woodpecker.
AND, our clematis didn't flower in the Spring as usual, however it's decided to give us a wonderful Summer show, with plenty of buds to come again.
