Laugh a little louder

Hello! We are back with some absolutely gorgeous inspiration for you this evening.

First up today is Elina Strömberg with 3 stunning cards…

Hi and Happy Thursday!

This month Visible Image started a new series of monthly challenges in their Facebook group. Playing along is easy; get inspired by the monthly theme, take out your Visible Image stamps and start creating! Upload your project to the May challenge album, and you might be the lucky winner of a £40 gift card in Visible Image online store! How cool is that!

May theme is ‘Express Yourself’

My take on the May challenge is a set of three cards:

For all these three cards I used my favourite quote stamp, ‘Laugh Louder’.
The basic design is somewhat similar on these cards, but I used the same stamp in 3 different ways.

On this first card I stamped the quote with black ink on a red Distress Paint coloured background. The lovely red texture did not require too many other elements to be added, so I just placed two die-cut flower stems on the sides.

On the second card the quote is stamped with two inks. I did not use any masking, but applied the ink on each word using a small ink pad (Tsukineko Memento Dew Drops). There’s just enough distance between the words so you can ink each line separately without mixing the colours.

The third card is a small ATC. I wanted to use only the last two lines of the quote, so I masked the above lines with a post-it note before stamping. The background is a leftover piece from my first card.

I hope you get inspired to play along. Many of the Visible Image quotes are just perfect for this month’s theme, and I guess the most difficult part will be the choosing between your favourites!
