Some Stamping...

Post by Lorraine on Wed 24 Sep 2008 - 22:06

I did these today using my Graphicus stamps.

More distress inked backgrounds but this time on ultra smooth white card. Stamped 3 times and layered up.

The white one is single and I put DG in the middle and some of the Art Accentz beads (tiny, tiny things). I think I might put this one on a card stamped with my fave fern stamps and some green ribbon.

The friends one is also layered and I've since coloured a few small dots with red, so I think a red strip of card and maybe some red/white gingham ribbon might look nice on a card with it.

Totally yum, the depth and warmth of colour in that orange flower is gorgeous, and I'm not keen on orange. Loving the micro beads too.

Very nice - like them all. The orange one is very autumnal.

Maria, the middle and outer petals are the same stamp and the middle layer is another stamp that matches.

To blend my colours I use finger sponge daubers. The distress inks soak up really well into them and then I just rub it on the card firmly. They blend really easily if you have enough ink on your dauber. Usually do 3 or 4 coats to get this depth of colour.
