DAY 1 - STRETCH YOUR STAMPS: BACKGROUND STAMP
I'm so excited to be back in class again this summer! Yeah for new ideas! I chose to work with the Hero Arts zig-zag background stamp. Inking the stamp with VersaMark ink on colored paper, I clear embossed & used 3 circle punches to make various sized circles. The sentiment & frame are from Paper Trey Ink.
Next white card stock was stamped with the zig-zag stamp using Soft Gray Shadow Ink. Ranger Distress inks were used to stamp the flower stamps (Impress) on white card stock & then I fussy cut them to layer on top of stamped stems. The zig-zag background with flowers was adhered to a golden yellow A2 card; a thin dark gray strip on right side of card had a postage stamp punch edge. The "Thank You" square from a Hero Arts "T" clear stamp set was inked with Fresh Ink slate pigment ink.
The final card for today is more masculine, using Versa Mark ink to stamp the zig-zag stamp on a kraft A2 card. Ranger Distress inks were used to stamp the rainbow colored banner on white card stock & a thinner orange banner from BasicGrey's "life of the party" 6x6 pad was layered over this. Two oval Nestabilities dies were used for the frame set & a sentiment from Hero Arts OWH clear Year Round Sentiments. The tiny orange heart was punched out of BG's orange paper, attached with a pop dot & covered with Glossy Accents to add some shine.
