Hi Everyone, more cards I did recently, I have bought a few stamps, can't believe it! I saw these and loved them, I thought they were simple and could be used whatever the occasion. Firstly I had seen (can't remember where now,) of making straight lines and distressing a shade. (If you know please let me know so I can give credit for the great idea.) EDIT - I have had a few people comment that it is the amazing Eileen Godwin, thank you everyone and Eileen too. I thought it sounded simple enough that I could do it, luckily I found it a great thing to do. When I had finished that card, I added water to the colours and pressed my card into it, then when dried I stamped on top of it. The third I just stamped and layered. I bought the other 2 stamps in the set also, so look out for those at a later date!
stamp - Woodware Autumn Pods
sentiment stamps - magazine freebies
black ink - Stazon
embossing powder - WOW clear sparkle
glaze - Nuvo Crystal Glaze
This is the one where I used a piece of card, then blending distress inks off it, to make the straight lines. I added colour to the stamped image and added sequins.
This is the one where I added water to the Distress inks left on my glass mat and pressed the card into it, stamping on top with a darker shade of the background and added clear sparkle embossing powder to it and layering just the corners.
This is just plain stamping, no embossing powder.
I did add glaze to the centre of the flowers, instead of colour.
