Artfully Composed - Ink Stamp Share
Hello and welcome to another Ink Stamp Share Blog Hop. I will be using items from the Artfully Composed suite for my project this month.
If you are joining our hop here with me at Craftyducky HQ or you have hopped over from Kim Price and her fabulous project, welcome - we have lots of fabulous projects to share with you. This month our challenge is to 'pick a suite' - I am using items from the Artfully Composed suite. I have already used these items for several projects and workshops. I just love leaves in all their forms and colours so this suite was an absolute must for me.
Have you spotted the Faux Sea Glass Shapes yet or the beautiful ribbon that frays so beautifully? I have used the glass shapes on several projects, they are frosty and have adhesive on the back so they are quick and simple to use and, they are very pretty!
Here is my project:
The dies I used previously were much smaller so, not quite the same as my previous project but I hope you can see the similarities. This project was very quick to put together - perfect for me at the moment as I am tending to leave things until the last minute!
The colours I used:
You will need:
21 cm x 14.5 cm Basic White Thick (BWT) - scored at 10.5 cm
10 cm x 14 cm BWT
9.8 cm x 13.8 cm Designer Series Paper (DSP)
You will also need small pieces of BWT and Evening Evergreen for the leaves
Die cut two leaves from the BWT panel then stamp the sentiment using Evening Evergreen ink.
The die cutting:
I used scraps of BWT and Evening Evergreen to cut out two leaves. I used the Evening Evergreen edge and the BWT inners for my project.
The ink blending:
I do love sentiments that have a mix of fonts don't you? I will be using the sentiments in this set a lot! I used several of the faux sea glass shapes to highlight the sentiment and dotted a few more around the leaves.
I used Mint Macaron ink to stamp a partial leafy border along the edge of the card. I also stamped some leaves on the envelope flap.
The completed project:
The DSP behind the die cut leaves adds a real pop of colour and it would be so easy to change the look of this project by using different DSP. Perhaps even a suitable card for a man?
