Hi everyone, the day started off sunny and bright, and is now damp and miserable. Are we ever going to get a summer?
Today's post is a new technique to me, and I saw a post from Kate Martin this morning and decided I would have a go. There is a video showing you how to do this technique at:
The stamp is from Le Blanche, and I coloured the background with Pan Pastels to take the starkness of the white card away. I started by cutting out the white card I was going to stamp onto, and then cut the black mats to go with them. Next I put a little bit of tape runner on the back of each of the white pieces of card, taking some of the sticky off and then layering them up. The next step was to stamp the image onto the card using a black Memento ink pad - making sure I put even pressure onto the stamp, especially the bit that was stamping right on the edge of the card because you are stamping over three layers - (the first time I didn't do this and the impression didn't stamp). After this I mounted the three layers onto the black mats and then mounted it onto my base card. Finally I coloured it with Pan Pastels Red tint. In the video, a background stamp is used first, but out of all the stamps I have, I didn't have ONE suitable stamp!!! A good excuse to go crafty shopping me thinks! lol
Hope you like it, I enjoyed making this card, and hope you will too - have a look at the video and then play and have fun xx
