Christmas is starting early at STAMPlorations! I've got three new stamp sets out this week so we're having a mini blog hop, and today we're focusing on Layered Lights.
There are three shapes with coordinating solid and line images, but remember, they won't align perfectly because they're not meant to. Here's what I've been doing with them.
For this first card, I stamped the line images and string. If the string doesn't join where you want it to, just use a fineliner pen to draw some extra loops - I also drew some extra lines on the hanging loops because I had a gap. Go on, you've got my permission to add extra scribbles where you need to! I dry-brushed the wet distress inks to give a hazy look.
I had a piece of spattered Distress Ink background so I stamped the images where they took best advantage of the colours, and added a bit of grey shadow under each light. This is actually half of the panel, the other half will appear in due course on another card.
This one is on mixed media paper, playing around with Distress Inks again and spritzing.
You don't have to join up the strings, just stamp them wherever you want for an implied tangle.
