Hardwood background stamp

I love background stamps and have recently purchased the Hardwood stamp.  A very versatile background.  Here’s a card I have made utilising the Avant Garden and Special Reason stamp sets.  The sentiment is framed with the Stitched framelit dies and the bow is using the linen thread.  A nice and easy card to make for beginners to stamping.  Hope you like it!

Rainy day stampin!!!

Well what else do you do on a rainy day but get in your craft room and create, have fun and enjoy the sound of rain outside!!  Here’s a pic from my craft room window and the two cards I have been creating.  I found a technique which I hadn’t tried before called Black Magic!  I think the effect is amazing!  Using black card stock, stamp with your white pigment ink your design.  Colour with the water colour pencils and then blend with the aqua pen.  Outline with a white gel pen!  Bingo a delightful looking card!!  If you would like to learn this technique, and you might be better at it than me but I did enjoy it, let me know and we can do a technique class!!

Enjoy the rain my Brissy friends!!!
