I’ve been playing around this afternoon with a stamp that I’ve not used for such a long time that I had to clean about half inch of dust off of it before I could ink it up.
Ok, that is a bit of an exaggeration, Lol, but it must be more than a year ago that I used it last and I don’t know why because I really love this stamp. It’s ‘Hydrangea’ by Rubber Stampede and it lends itself to so many different projects but today I made a simple birthday card
My starting point was this sketch from Sunday Sketch and Stamp.
The image was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and then coloured with Promarkers and some Stickles for a touch of sparkle.
It’s then been layered over a Papermania ‘Book Print’ background sheet that’s been coloured with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink, a plain White piece of card that’s been embossed in the Couture Creations ‘Waterfall’ folder and a band cut using a Martha Stewart punch which has an Organza ribbon and bow tied around it.
For the finishing touches I’ve added a birthday greeting and a Peel-Off butterfly which has been stuck onto Acetate, coloured with Promarkers and finished off with some more Stickles.
As well as Sunday Sketch and Stamp I'm also entering this into the following challenges:-
