Restful Christmas Card (Penny Black)
A few months ago, I watched a tutorial on how to use a Penny Black Slapstick stamp called "Restful". I tried to source this stamp in the UK, but it seemed to be sold out, so I ordered it from America. It arrived and has sat on my desk for a couple of weeks. Today I decided to try the technique out.
Although I have a lot of crafting stash, I didn't have many of the exact products used in the tutorial, so I improvised with what I had.
This photo is my second attempt at the card. The first one went wrong because I did not follow my instincts and the result ended in the bin - so lesson learnt!
For my version, I have used the following items: Versafine "Vintage Sepia", various shades of Memento and Cats Eyes inks. Versamark clear ink pad, clear embossing powder, Distress Inks, Signo Pen, Gesso for the snow flakes.
