Use them or lose them #10 Handcarved

So this year I have decided to challenge myself to make a set of cards, scrapbook page or journal layout using each of my stamp sets as I know I have some I rarely use!

Today I am using a background stamp (Handcarved) as my Use them or lose them stamp of choice and I already know it’s a keeper!

Here are four cards using a similar technique but different mediums…

First off brusho stamping!

Both of these were stamped by sprinkling a few colours of Brusho onto my mat, spraying them with water and using that as the ink pad. Once dry I stamped the main image onto them. Gorgeous!

Couldn’t resist envelopes too..

But envelopes were done using the second technique. I added different inks onto the stamp using SU ink pads. Then spritzed with water before stamping. This then led to the second set of cards…

The second one is the first generation ink and the first one is the second generation of the ink.

Suffice it to say I am more than happy with these two sets of cards. What a fun technique to get multicoloured and funky backgrounds.

Happy crafting!
