I hope you are all enjoying your week and that you are getting some nice sunshine , it has been so very nice to get out of work at night and still see the sun streaming through the trees.
After last weeks quite complicated tutorial I thought this week I would do something a little simpler for folks in the clean and simple vane.
I used three stamps from Our Visible Image Friends and they will of course be listed below or if you have any similar or you would like to substitute one of your favourite quotes or sentiments it is just another way of doing a very quick but smart card to give to someone special. It is funny isn't it , when we make cards/ gifts we all seem to put our heart and soul and a bit of ourselves into the design and the way we compose it for that person , I feel like I am making it for all of you when I do them as I share the details so much with you all.
Here is today's card and I hope you like it.
I used two distress inks on this one in Vintage photo and Seedless Preserves. I used off white and black cardstock. Lots of matting and layering with foam in between too.
Firstly, I took some off white card and my Grunge polka dots background stamp with Vintage Photo DI and stamped a few dots on opposite corners and then took a piece of cut and dry and a little ink with a light hand and added to all the edges and corners of this piece
I then took my Ink Splat stamps and used a few different ones with the purple Seedless preserves DI
and stamped that randomly , I did keep in mind the sentiment would be around the centre and it would be good to still see some of the inking once attacked to the card etc. I then matted this onto another piece of off white and another larger mat again in off white and then a black layer.
I took a left over piece of the off white card and stamped my Just making memories sentiment which I adore in Versafine black ink and added one of the purple large splats to it, I used some of the Vintage Photo to edge this piece as before and then mounted it onto black card.
Ok so the stamps I used from my good friends at Visible Image are listed here.
Grunge Polka dots.
Just making memories.
So you can see how simple it all came together once it is broken down can't you? Perhaps you can tell me whether you like the mix of tutorials I do each week or if there is a particular type you like best, maybe paper pads or inky ones , maybe the embossing techniques or paints and colour etc, let me know in the comments if you would like too.
Here again is the finished Image
