Good Morning Friends,
I hope you are all well this weekend and have some crafting time scheduled! Thank you for visiting and commenting on my blog, I really do appreciate it very much. I can't believe it's already the last day of August..yesterday I took the bus into Bath, where I met my friend Trish. We don't get to see each other that often and mostly keep in touch through Facebook and twitter, so when we do get to be ladies who do lunch, there is always a lot to talk about! Trish keeps hens too, three really pretty little bantams.
Anyway back to crafts: because of my impending holiday and because I have the busiest craft month ever on my return, I have to prepare my two workshop cards for October and November before I go. Amy and I have decided to use two Indigo Blu stamps and this is one of them: The stag on a cliff. I first saw Kay from Indigo Blu demoing this stamp on TV and I just loved it there and then and having played with it, I love it even more. It's a simple design, but says so much.
This is just a really simple card I put together whilst playing...it's not going to be the one for the class, it was just me playing...
I simply matted and layered blue and silver mirri card, finishing with the white stamped card. The background was created first, by cutting some copy paper in wavy shapes (like mountain folds) and I also punch a circle for the moon. I then used these as masks on the card and shaded the edges with distress ink (Chipped Sapphire).
Finally I stamped the stag and tree with Vintage Sepia Versafine ink. The sentiment was from a set I had free with a magazine and can you believe it, I lost it whilst making the card! It's quite small and I think it got picked up with some paper and thrown away...dam!
The stamp also comes with a sentiment that forms part of the cliff:
Look out for more of my creations with this stamp!
Thanks for stopping by,
Love and Hugs,
