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!
This week I am playing with Simply Sketched which I have had for a while and used quite often. I must admit the sentiments get used the most and it is the only Sympathy sentiment I own so I know already I am unlikely to let this one leave. But still I fancied doing something a bit different and opted for some round card blanks and some distress stain for one and the distress glaze for both of them.
I started by stamping both the cards, inside and out with Archival ink. One on watering can and the other in Sepia.
Then for this one I created a border with the distress glaze, lightly coloured the image with watercolour pencils and then added some distress stain over the top.
I did the same with the envelope and also created some splatters. Then added the sentiment and some seam binding.
These are going nowhere!
