Angel Heart by Amanda Southern


Hi everyone

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve inked up some Carabelle stamps and I was getting withdrawal symptoms and this card I have for you includes the first inking of one of the most recently released stamps.

Here’s what I did:-

I find myself at the moment in the middle of my busiest time of the year at work so my crafting time is somewhat limited, when time is limited but I still want to create, my first port of call is my stash of prepared backgrounds. The background that I have used here is one of my gelli print backgrounds using one of my favourite colour combo’s pink and yellow acrylic paint (very girly). 

I first stamped the girl/angel, this is the new release stamp, using black Archival stamping again onto a Post It Note which was then cut out and used as a mask to allow me to add the background stamping. I then stamped a variety of Carabelle stamps to create the interest in my background using both pink and yellow ink pads. 

Finally added a little black stamping on the left. The hearts were first stamped onto the part of the gelli print that I had left after cutting my background square from it and were then cut out. The one that I have added the sentiment to was cut out using a heart die. I stamped the sentiment onto the background and then again onto the heart and then lined up the text and arranged the cluster of hearts and added a touch of torn washi tape. 

Finally, I added some colour to my image using Spectrum Noir pencils, matted onto black card and applied to a square card blank.

What I Used:-

Carabelle Studio Stamps:-
Collage texte et Negatif
Archival Ink Pads - Saffron & Black
Versamagic – Pink Petunia
Post it Notes

Have a fabulous week
