C'est encroyable! Monday again. Who stole the bit in between? Or am I suffering from sunstroke??? In true Brit form I must say it is a trifle hot for me...but thankfully my huge pre-mummy DT marathon kept me hostage in the craft room and shade. Let's get straight to the crafty point as I have another six blog posts to reel off...
Simon Says Stamp & Show it's all about man stuff! From little boys to your great Grandpa and all the other fellas, we want to see "One for the Boys". Seems I can't count because I made two!
I'm still loving the beauty of just ink and paper! These vintage sets are really great fun and produce a lovely stamped image - with lots of potential for different compositions and designs. This first set is called 'Road Trip".
Distress Stain with Cut 'n Dry foam. I used Ranger Archival inks for a crisp image mixing up Sepia, Coffee, Russet and Jet Black tones.
l remembered to take a quick snap of how I work on the composition! The stamp sets have their design printed on the back which means I can plan the layout of my design just by laying the stamps as shown. Then you need to work out which masks you need and the correct order in which to stamp!
Artful Voyage stamps and the aeroplane from the Warehouse District set as they go together so well. I went really wild with a daring swoosh of Rusty Hinge Distress Stain! I also added a few splatters by flicking Distress stain from an old small paintbrush.
distressing of the edges and a little inking. Great vintage images and a wild swoosh of ink and I'm all done - ready to set sail!
Design Team blog to see more great blokey stuff from my teamies. I'm looking forward to seeing your creations - I think we all like seeing new artful ideas for the Gents! Don't forget we personally choose our Top Three and there's the generous $50 shopping spree to be won! Yes please!
Thanks for taking a peek. Over out - and until the next time!
