I hope you are all having a great week I find myself wishing it was Friday already haha (at least it is a short week yay.
How is everyone?let me know how your bank Holiday weekend went and what you go up to below, I managed to get the last couple of posts comments answered again and I will be trying my best to get this weeks done too so if you get chance I have answered your comments so feel free to stop by and catch up.
Today I have a card using the fab Visible Image stamps and I did some second gen stamping too, I love the result, it came out Looking vintage and Masculine just what I was looking for
I hope you like it too.
Ok so here we go on today's tutorial for this card entitled Remember good times.
So I started by using my old Tuxedo black Momento ink pad so that I could use alcohol markers on it too, I purposely took the ink that is drying out so it left this mottled light image so that following in with colour will mean it wills how through.
I wanted to use the technique our Sue calls Out of the box , I first saw it done on the Heartfelt creations website many moons ago and it is where you mark out the area you want to look like it is coming out of the die frame and you tuck the die under that gap as in the next picture
Once it is cut out and while the frame is still in place I took my time and with a light hand used my Antique Linen Distress ink to add to the outside of the frame.
I choose some reds in my promarkers to go with the ink I have been using, I used Poppy, red and cardinal red to add depth to the car colour.
This is the next layer and it is definitely starting to get a sheen on the high points and the darker areas are starting to look receded how we would expect too . I added another layer and set aside.
I took the Good times stamp from the loving 'No regrets' sentiment set and used Versafine black ink and embossed it quickly with clear embossing on the bottom part of this frame.
I gave that a black mat to sit on also. I set this section aside as now we need to make the base for this piece and the car to sit upon.
I used some Momento grey flannel ink and did the 2nd generation stamping at this stage too. So I kept a spare piece of card next to me and every time I inked my stamp I blotted 1 impression onto scrap paper first then went in and stamped the Vintage car and the Tyre marks and Bronte border script stamp too, just randomly over the areas that will be seen a little. I took a cool Grey promarker in number 2 and drew around the car and one side of the tyre marks and also randomly under darker areas of script, Casting little shadows like this really helps to lift things off the paper and stops them looking like a flat drawing.
I added some mats to the layers on this base portion of the card using black and red with the last layer being cream and then I started building the card together with all the elements we made along the way.
Here are some of the elements I added , I love using metal onto t he card and these gears etc are just perfect.
So that's it so here is the finished card again.
I hope you enjoyed making this one with me and doing the step by steps too.
Here are the stamps I used from Visible Image for this card.
I hope you like this masculine card for today and enjoyed putting it all together. leave me your comments and thoughts as always and I hope you are all well and enjoyed the bank holiday.
Have a brilliant Wednesday and I look forward to reading your comments later.
Here are a few extra photos.
