More S-T-R-E-T-C-H-ing your Stamps
First up from day 2
I had some watercolour paper in my stash, so made myself a collage background using a number of stamps from a Pink Paislee set. I added them all together on a Fiskars stamp press and inked them with some brown ink. I used Jennifer's idea of making an embossed frame and adding some vellum. I used a cream card stock to soften the look of the card.
And from Day 6
I used a Memory Box die to emboss my yellow strip. I added it to the card before doing the partial cutting but in future I won't do that... the cutting of the die caused the embossing to flatten..... but it still looked okay. I die cut a butterfly and coloured it and stuck it inside as Jennifer showed in her video. I used a sentiment from Penny Black. I added some strips of paper and card but decided not to add any other embellishment.
I'm entering this card into A blog named Hero's challenge to be inspired by one of the Hero Art artists.... obviously Jennifer really inspired me with both of these cards.
Today's class uses my favourite roses stamp from Hero Arts/BasicGrey. I really love using this stamp and just love the samples shown. Hopefully in the next few day I'll get time to make a card or two.
Now off to watch NCIS.
