But of course I had to do another card so I would be happy. Now this I love and I have ended up stamping 8 cards in varied colours. The other seven still need their die cut or stamped sentiments and bling but its getting late and I thought I had best post my happy with card.
This has been done using a stamp from a brilliant stamp set by Annabelle, that sadly is no longer available. I used ink pads that I bought when I first started stamping. I can't believe they still work, they have never been reinked. This one is 'Fresh Greens' Kaleidacolor with 5 different colours that you click together to use.
I have 6 ink pads and sadly one is no longer what it was. It started life as brights yellow,red,blue,green & purple but now it is brown brown brown and darker brown. You will see later when I post the other cards. Doesn't look too bad for brown tones especially for me who only ever buys brights and lights. Why did this happen - because goose here forgot to pull the colours apart when last used, maybe a year ago so the inks have soaked and mingled quite well.
Buts let concentrate on this one. Other than the two little circle further down the stamp I used is the full amount I stamped here so I just pulled the ink along the circles only using two and a very little bit of the next colour down.
Doesn't it look brilliant, I used the Misti so one I had it lined up where I wanted to stamp I was able to just slide the next piece of card stock into place. Wipe the stamp down with a cloth and add the next colour. I found lifting the door where the stamp is placed I could see if the ink had coated well or not as the stamp is a clear one.
When finished I then trimmed down and attached the 'Good Times' die cut along the top edge of the stamped image.
Went through my gems and used all gems from Annabelle that are also no longer available and I have lots of in all colours. They need to be glued in place but well worth it. They are beautiful to look at. They vary in size and colours. Truly beautiful. Not sure if you can see that in the close up but I did a close up just to show that.
Ok time to link this into the challenge before it closes
Hope you enjoyed your visit and come again.
