Good Evening! Hope you’ve had a good Monday 🙂
We are kicking off a new week of fabulous inspiration from the team with Kim Bacon…
Another Monday has arrived! Hopefully you all had a good weekend?
Today I am featuring a card I made using one of the totally awesome Visible Image stamps along with a piece of paper that very nearly went in the bin!
You know I love making backgrounds? Well, I cover my desk with a piece of cheap paper before starting any painting and spraying so I don’t get the cutting mat dirty. I have a huge mat and am just too lazy to move it off the desk.
Anyway, as I am also a bit careful with my supplies, I keep these pieces of paper to use again and again. The resulting ‘mess’ can sometimes be very pleasant. Here, let me show you what I mean…
The card I made with a piece of this paper features the lovely flying bird and tree silhouette..
Leave your Fears
I stamped the image using a Tim Holtz distress embossing powder hence the grainy look.
I covered a piece of card with the image because the paper is quite thin. I didn’t leave enough space for the sentiment so I stamped it onto a piece of heat resist acetate which I secured with some eyelets and beads at one side. The curve helped fit the sentiment on!
Hope you like it?
See you next week for another Marvellous Monday and in the mean time enjoy your week, get crafty and show us what you have been up to!
Happy Days! Kim
