Winter Woods - Ink Stamp Share
Hello and welcome to another Ink Stamp Share Blog Hop. If you are joining me straight from Libby thank you for hopping over. If you are starting with me, welcome - grab a cuppa and have fun hopping with us, don't forget to leave comments (we like that)!!
This month our theme is Autumn/Halloween. As Autumn is my favourite time of the year I decided to pull a favourite stamp set off my shelf that I have not used for ages called Winter Woods. I have been using this stamp set a lot recently; this is my third post using this set this week!
Here is my project:
The colours I used:
You will need:
21 cm x 14.5 cm ww thick - scored at 10.5 cm
12 cm x 9 cm ww thick
10.5 cm x 14 cm brushed copper card
ww thick scrap for the sentiment
The die cutting:
I used one of my favourite Stitched Rectangle die to cut a panel from ww thick card. I used the same sized die and the next largest to create a frame from brushed foil card. Save the smaller rectangle to use on another project. I used a scrap of foil to cut the curved shape that forms the ground using the coordinating In The Woods dies.
The stamping and colouring:
I stamped the trees onto the stitched rectangle using Stazon ink.
The panel on the left has been coloured with sponge daubers. It was a bit tricky to control where the ink went and, I felt it lacked Autumnal vibrancy.
I decided that I preferred the water coloured panel. Attach the copper ground piece to the panel using Tombow then attach the copper frame to the card front again using Tombow. I then adhered the stamped panel using dimensionals.
I stamped a partial image on both the inside of the card and the envelope.
The completed project:
The copper frame has such a lovely shine to it that enhances the colours I used for the trees.
Obviously, I won't waste the other coloured panel - I will do something with it at some point! Looking at the photo above I may make another version of this card using copper embossing for the trees. As ever, so many ideas, so little time!
