A Past Generation by Lynne Moncrieff



This week is a card featuring Artistic Outpost’s Generation Redux stamp set.



Manilla Shipping Tag (substitutes:- CraftyIndividuals Mixed Tag Pack or Ranger Manilla Tags)
Soft Brush (I use an artist watercolour brush)
Idea-ology Tiny Attacher
White Cardstock or 7”x5” pre-scored cardbase
Jute string, lace, lace rose, stained seam binding and stained guipure lace



Onto watercolour paper apply texture with Mini Gothic Romance stencil and Maimeri Light Modelling Paste.

Once dry apply a mixture of Twinkling H20s - ensure watercolour paper is wet before applying the Twinkling H20s. Continue to mist with water and dry with heat gun. 

Apply Tea Dye Distress Paint to the relief areas. 

Stamp floral stamps from Generation Redux with Distress Ink Tea Dye, mist with water then dry with heat gun.


Take a baby wipe, apply pressure to remove some of the paint, in particular remove from the relief areas.

Adhere panel to cardbase, abrade edges before sponging with Distress Ink.

Adhere vintage lace to panel. Lay panel aside for the moment.



Mist tag with water before applying Twinkling H20s. Allow the paint to drip down the tag.  Dry with heat gun but not completely dry.

Stamp girls with Rich Cocoa (I like the effect of the stamped image onto the slightly damp tag). Tear bottom edge.

Ink up the flower element with StazOn and stamp onto scrap piece of the painted watercolour paper. Ink edges of the flower. Layer over the main image.

Onto the tag, stamp texture stamp and floral stamps with Distress Ink Tea Dye.

Abrade edges, sponge Distress Ink onto the edges.   

Ink up text only, from one of the other stamps in the Generation Redux set onto another piece of the prepared watercolour paper. Staple to right side of tag.

Stamp Crafty Individuals Postcard onto scrap of book page, inking edges. Adhere to bottom edge of tag.

Embellish tag with stained lace, stained seam binding, lace rose and jute string tied into a bow. 



Adhere tag to cardbase.

Stamp numbers onto another piece of the prepared watercolour paper. Ink edges.

Adhere to top corner of cardbase. Embellish with stained guipure lace.
