Good Morning Crafty Friends
Today I decided to show you a technique that has endless possibilities. I used a Misti Stamp positioner,
Holiday Helpers Stamp set by lawn Fawn,
Memento ink pad in Tuxedo Black
Neenah 80lb Card Stock,
Alcohol Pens,Squared 6" x 6" Card blank, White Gel pen, and finally a Clear Sparkle Pen.
With the every popular turn about stamps it got me to thinking, how could we create our own using stamps we have in our stash. I also had been inspired by others on how they create flower wreaths. So could it work with images, I set to work.
Taking a sheet of Neenah card stock, I cut it to 5.5 "x 5.5". so it would layer on to a 6"x 6" card blank.
Then I placed my images at the middle top. I stamped them in memento ink, then turn the card stock half a turn.
I then repeated this until I had done all four sides.
I then started adding other elements, to add to my design in the same way. I used an acrylic block for this was quicker.
You could do all the stamping using a block, but I would suggest using a few pencil marks to guide you.
I carried on building up the design.
When I had used all the available space, I stamped the sentiment into the center and a few more images to finish it off. I then pulled out my markers.
I used a post it note to help stop smearing of the ink.
I chose bright and cheerful colors for my Christmas theme.
The coloring didn't take that long. As I colored an image and the turned the card stock, and repeated it on all four sides.
I then placed it onto a 6" x 6" card blank.
I used a white gel pen to add highlights and a sparke pen to the snow flakes.
Thank you for visiting,
