Live Free by Amanda Southern

Hi Everyone today I have a card for you featuring the fabulous stamps of Carabelle Studio.

I have collaged together several of the Carabelle strip stamps, these stamps are very long at approximately 11” long so they come on their own acrylic block. I covered an A4 piece of stamping card by using 3 of these stamps stamping with black Archival ink, then when I had covered the whole sheet I cut out a 7.5” square that I liked. Into some of the spaces I stamped the hearts and scribbly circles. I coloured the hearts with translucent red paint and the scribbles with a Distress marker.

I then stamped the leaves onto a gelli plate scrap, cut out and added to the card. I stamped and cut out the live free sentiment, colouring again with the translucent red paint and highlighted the word free with a white pen. I added the live free and little stamped heart with 3D gel to give it a raised effect.

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

What I Used:-

Carabelle Studio Edger Stamps - Texte Grunge, Life is Good & Un regard sur mon histoire
Carabelle Studio Stamp Sets - Doodl’ Art, Open Your Mind & Leafs
8” x 8” Card Blank
