Good morning, Kirsten here on the last day of October. I hope you've had a good month. I've got two very quick & simple projects to show you today, I used the beautiful Winter Robin Art Stamp from Imagination Crafts on both.
My base for this project is a white/greyboard postcard from That's Crafty. You can use either side, I chose the white side & as I was stamping & using Distress inks.
I stamped the Winter Robin in Vintage Sepia Versafine ink with the intention of adding clear embossing powder & heat setting, but I had forgotten that my ink pad is not as juicy as it used to be & I got a slightly faded result, which I really liked & decided to keep.
I dried the ink with my heat tool, then added some colour with watered down Red & Emerald Starlights. When that was dry I blended Antique Linen & Tea Dye Distress inks around the outside of the image & added the greeting from the Hobby Art Christmas Frosting stamp set. I also added some Diamond Sparkle Medium with my finger to the tree branch.
To finish the postcard I painted two scraps of card with Red, Topaz & Green Starlights, die cut the scraps with the Leane Creatief Flower die 004 to make a poinsettia & glued it & the flourish to the postcard with Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear glue. A spatula tip of Welsh Gold Sparkle Medium to the centre of the poinsettia & I was finished.
The second project is even simpler. A 6x6 white card blank, Distress inks - Candied Apple, Bundled Sage, Spiced Marmalade - on to a piece of white Super Smooth with splatters off watered down Pearl Starlights, the Winter Robin stamped with Onyx Black Versafine & heat set with WOW! Clear Gloss embossing powder, a piece of grey card as a matted layer & the Hobby Art Christmas Frosting greeting stamped directly on to the card blank.
I will be back next week with another October project as the
November class is not taking place until November 11.
Take care & have a nice week.
