Carmen’s Veranda Stamps Arrive at That’s Crafty by Amanda Southern

Hi Everyone

Today I have a card for you made with some of the new arrivals to the shop last week of Carmen’s Veranda stamps.

Here’s how I made it:-


I first stamped the large background stamp onto white card with black Archival ink. I repeated the stamp to fill the height of my card. I then took one of my many Gelli Plate pages and stamped my main image onto it. I didn’t want to use the whole image (this is a large stamp) so tore out just the face part of the image, I just coloured the eyes and the lips for contrast using Spectrum Noir pencils.

I then tore another piece and stamped my sentiment on it this time using Ranger black dye ink pad for a bolder black.

A smaller torn piece was added to the top for balance.

Mat and layered onto black card and then mounted onto an 8 x 8 card blank.


What I used:-

Carmen’s Veranda Stamps – Grunge Black Swirl (Background) and Bullseye Face (Main Image)


Hope you like it
