This was the first time I had inked up a Carabelle stamp. I can see why they are so popular. Fabulous detailing on this particular stamp and I enjoyed incorporating some Dinky Stencils. As with my project last week, the Brick Repeat makes another appearance. Have I mentioned that already I have my absolute favourites!
That's Crafty! Dinky Stencils:- Harlequin. Distressed Harlequin and Brick Repeat
Prima Finnabair Don’t Forget To Fly and Rust and Dust
Distress Inks:- Weathered Wood, Walnut Stain and Vintage Photo
PaperArtsy Fresco Finish:-
Space Cadet, Chalk and Stone Lake Wanaka
Idea-ology Tiny Attacher
Tim Holtz Tissue Tape
Extras:- Cork, Raffia, Jute Ribbon and Feather
After applying the Frescos to white cardstock, working with a baby wipe to blend the colours. I tore a panel to adhere to cardbase. The base I worked on was slightly larger than the overall stamped image.
Stamping, with Potting Soil, the Carabelle stamp I followed by stamping again, this time onto a piece of cream Tissue stock. Tearing around the image and distressing and rolling the edges. I then attached it to the main cardbase.
Now the fun with the Dinky Stencils. Randomly, with a cosmetic sponge, I stencilled the designs with Distress Inks, selecting any blank areas where I could include some stencilling. The size of the Dinky Stencils allows you to work on the smallest of areas. They are such clever designed stencils.
Continuing with stamping, this time moving onto the Finnabair stamp set. One of the sentiments stamped onto a scrap piece of the painted cardstock and for the other I stamped onto cork. I also had a tiny piece of stamped cork leftover from a previous project so I utilised that also (stamp from Rust and Dust)
To assemble, for the top of the cardbase I adhered a torn piece of painted cardstock (this was a piece leftover when I adhered the prepared panel to the cardbase). Cutting the sentiment into word tiles, edging with Distress Ink, they were adhered to this panel.
At the bottom edge, the stamped cork elements were layered with a feather to jute ribbon along with a torn piece of crackle glazed tag from some previous project. Other embellishment touches are a raffia bow and torn pieces of Tissue Tape.
Until next time
