Hello There 🙂 Thank you for stopping by today.
Here with our regular ‘Marvellous Monday’ post it’s over to Kim Bacon…
Bore da! Or if you’re reading this a little later Prynhawn da! Either way, nice to see you here again.
Today my post for Visible Image shows how you can make a great card using just a couple of stamps and a sentiment. OK, sometimes it is good to go ‘all out’ and stamp until your hands are aching, but other times it is just about that one image.
You know I love butterflies? Well I do, and this stamp from the INKognito range is just a dream to have in my collection.
Better show you the card I think before I forget!
I started by making my background. This is wet Brusho painted onto white card. I deliberately kept away from the edges this time so that the stamping round the edge would show up more. I really like the places where the paint brush marks show.
I stamped the INKognito butterfly first and then added the traditional butterfly over the top. I used the trailing splodges from the wing of the butterfly around the edge. I used wet Brusho paint as the ‘ink’ for the stamp just painting it directly onto the stamp. I then used a darker mix for the other butterfly image. It’s neat how they fit perfectly. Was this a happy accident or did they do it on purpose? I wonder!
The sentiment is stamped in white embossing powder. I love the font, that old typewriter style. Lovely. I very nearly used the same blue again but as I knew I was going to stamp slightly over the butterfly wing, I decided to do it in white so it didn’t get lost. Such a good decision!
Here are the picture links for the stamps I used and don’t forget to check out all the other DT blogs and Facebook pages.
