Well over at Simon says stamp Monday challenge it is time to out the artsy stamps. I love this stamp and now i have it in the original wooden backed version as i got it as a birthday pressie. So i decided to play with it.
I made the yellow one first as I wanted it to be a bit quirky. My husband said i should do it in blue to be more traditional and i obliged. So you can decide which one you like best.
So both times I started with one of the Tim Holtz stencils, the splodgy one. On a piece of white card I chose parts of the stencils that I liked and using a make-up sponge I inked tumbled glass, broken china, peacock feathers an weathered wood for the blue one and squeezed lemonade, mustard seed, scattered straw and dried marigold for the yellow.
I didn't really plan it out but just went with was pleasing to my eyes. Then i stamped rainman in black archival ink and this time i tried to get his boots in the 'puddle'.
I matted and layered on complimentary card and decided to add some ideology twine and metal tags.
These are quick cards that come in handy when you are short of time. But i still think they are pretty effective. Anyway over to you now: .......... blue or yellow? Theresa xx
