City Girl Gets Around
Been playing with stamps from my new range again, which will be available soon exclusively at STAMPlorations. These stamps are all from the set, "CityGirl".
I turned the stamp over so that I had a solid reverse image, and inked it up with Black Soot, Seedless Preserves and, I think, Spiced Marmalade. Or it could have been Rusty Hinge - can't remember now. Then I spritzed it heavily with water and stamped it on my card. It made a lovely schlurpy shadow on one side as the stamp was coming away from the image. (I re-spritzed and re-stamped and got another usable image for another card which I'll show you another time.)
I stamped the text block starting at the top, and masked it with a larger mini-poster-sized piece of paper, then drew round the paper, then stamped the next block, masked and drew round that, etc, etc. Then I stamped the sentiment down the side of the piece and mounted it onto burgundy coloured card.
I'm entering this into Virginia's View, Clean and Simple
