Today we are sharing some of the samples created by Mark on our September Create and Craft TV shows. Some of our awesome NEW stencils were designed with our super cool music stamps in mind, and our NEW family definition stamps are a perfect addition too…
Mark stayed with traditional colours for his first 2 cards. Our brilliant ‘Grungy Union Jack’ stencil doesn’t need much more than some distress ink to create a superb background!

The awesome guitar from the ‘Music Speaks’ set was embossed onto black card using white embossing powder, cut out and adhered to the card using foam pads for depth.
The ‘Father definition’ stamp was masked off to just use part of it, and stamped in Versafine black ink.

Mark’s next card features stamps perfect for those awkward teenage cards…
Having masked his card in two parts, and coloured the left side blue using distress inks, he then flicked some water onto the ink. Mark then blended distress inks through the stripes part of the ‘Stars and Stripes’ stencil in red, on the right side of his card.
Next he used some white texture paste through the stars part of the stencil, over the blue distress ink.
The ‘Teenage Kicks’ stamp was stamped using Versafine black ink, cut out and again adhered to the card using foam pads. The Brother sentiment was masked off and stamped in black, and one of the definitions was then masked off and stamped below.

Mark also created a more ‘girly’ version of this card…
On this card Mark stamped the trainers in pink and added some glitter to the toes!
By adding some dylusions paint to the texture paste, the pink stars add a more feminine feel to the background, against the black distress ink. Mark then used a Wink of Stella pen to add some sparkle!
Daughter Definition stamp
The last card has a far grungier feel…
Mark created a dark grungy background using Distress Oxide inks, splattered with water then dried. He then blended Black Soot distress ink through the fantastic ‘Play Guitar’ stencil.
Mark double embossed the awesome guitarist from the ‘Rock Out’ set using silver powder and adhered it to the card using foam pads for dimension.
