One Stamp Two Ways (1 of 2)
It's raining here today but I've just been out for a delicious roast and shortly off to do some crafting so I'm having a good day. I hope you are too.
This is the first of two cards made using the same stamp. It's a Papermania rubber mounted stamp which I stamped with Black Archival ink and painted with my Rowley watercolour paints. The sentiment is part of the stamp.
I used Tea Dye Distress ink round the edge of the image and Antique Linen round the edge of the card. The butterfly is a punch. I made his antennae with craft wire and finally added the five gems.
I'd like to enter this card into 613 Avenue Create blog where it's Anything goes including a rose or a pearl.
I inked the stamp with a Black Archival inkpad and stamped on the splodges which are Visible Images stamps.
After cutting the image to size I mounted it onto a smaller piece of black card as I didn't want a complete black border.
I embossed the Hobby Arts sentiment with black embossing powder, tore round the edge and rubbed with a"sunny coloured" Distress ink.
