Vintage multi-stamp card (Crafty Individuals and others)
Last night I wanted to make something totally different, and work out of my comfort zone, to what I've been doing recently, so pulled out some of my older stamps and played with a gelli plate background made of Colorbox Inks and wet Brusho paint tapped onto the plate using a fan brush.
I'd seen a video of Tracey Evans using Versamark through a stencil, I added clear embossing powder and then heated (this produces the discs of lighter colour across the card) so decided to try that technique out, which worked really well. Certainly something I wouldn't have thought about doing myself.
Over the top of the surface, I used a blending tool with the "Ripe Persimmon" Distress Oxide Ink. Then the "Crushed Olive, then around the edges the "Forest Moss" Distress Oxide Ink.
I put "Forest Moss" Distress Oxide Ink though a diamond stencil in two corners of the card. Using a clear stamp with text, I stamped the image )unfortunately, I don't have a clue who made the stamp to credit them) using Versafine "Olympia Green" shade of ink.
I used Crafty Individual ferns from their CI-207 set. The circle numbers and the image on the bottom left of the card are stamps by Paperartsy. I don't recall where the circular face stamp came from as I've had it for years. All of these images were stamped in Versafine "Olympia Green" shade of ink,
I stamped the Crafty Individuals CI-519 in Versafine Clair ink in the shade of "Chianti" on an off cut of white card. I then coloured it with my Arteza Brush Pens and a metallic gold pen. I then cut around the image and adhered into position.

Thank you Tracy. I loved trying the embossed circles xDelete
Good for your for trying such a complicated design! Personally I am so glad you kept it beautiful! Which is difficult with so many elements. I guess this is the gourmet method of card-making: so many ingredients. I’m just at the hamburger level.....🙋🍄🌺❤️ReplyDelete
