Moth Stamp On Fishnet Stencil

Hello and Happy Friday to you! Today’s inspiration comes from stempelfrida who has made a fantastic mixed media card featuring our moth stamp and ripped fishnet stencil, with some elements from our ‘Somewhere in Time’ stamp set…



You cannot turn back the clock and change the past. That’s the way it is, and I think it’s also pointless to think about “what would have happened if…” because who knows if things would have turned out differently again.

With this attitude I managed my life well so far. It has helped me a lot to take decisions. In this moment, in this situation, with this mood and at this point in time you made your decision. And that is good. Fate contributes its part.  This situation will never come back. It is about standing by your decision and moving on. Do not look back, but enjoy the moment and look ahead. If it is intended differently for you, something will happen to you again, someone will meet you, something will happen…

For this collage I used a special technique to transfer an alcohol ink background from Yupo paper to normal paper. You use Alcohol Lift Ink Reinker. From this you put some drops on the background, spread them with a brayer, put a paper over it and smooth it with your hand.


The wonderful thing is that you can stamp and emboss on the “normal paper” this way. On the three photos you can see it well:

1. alcohol ink background on Yupo paper



2. transfer on normal paper



3. stamped background



On the background I applied colorless embossing paste through the ripped fishnet stencil. When it was firm in consistency but not yet completely dry, I applied Perfect Pearls in gold. So you can see through the structure, but it has a nice golden shimmer.

I also added Nuvo Drop pearls.




I stamped the moth with Ink on 3 and fussy cut it. I then coloured it with Copics. I shaped it and glued it to the background with distance pads.

I rounded off the corners of my card and the base and knotted some bast around the text.
