I decided to make a stash of one-layer cards to send abroad so that I can save on postage. It's got so expensive and I hear it's going up again in April! (warning - long post)
This card was made using a small Whispers square shadow stamp stamped in Stampin' Up in Pink Pirouette and the flower from SU Faith in Nature and a Crafty Individual sentiment stamped in SU Not Quite Navy.
This time I used a large Whispers Square shadow stamp again in SU Pink Pirouette, then the leaf and sentiment from Faith in Nature in SU Not Quite Navy and then some embossing round the image.
This time I used two colours on the large shadow stamp (SU Wild Wasabi and Certainly Celery) then the pear and a best wishes sentiment in SU Cajun Craze.
This time I stamped the little row of mice and the sentiment from Penny Black Micey Day in black on to a green card blank and added colour with Derwent Studio pencils.
Onto a blue card blank I stamped another image from Penny Black and again coloured with Derwent Studio Pencils.
Tilda paddling in the sea stamped onto a white card blank and coloured with Derwent Studio pencils. I cut a mask and sponged yellow ink for the sun and the sentiment is from Hobby Art General Greetings.
A cute little Manga Girl from Sugar Nellie coloured with Derwent Studio Pencils and a sentiment from Hobby Art General Greetings.
For these two I stamped the sentiments first (Darkroom Door and Stampscape) first, then masked off the area around them and also a circle mask for the moon, and then sponged Distress Ink (Stormy Sky) all over the card. Then I stamped the trees and seascape (Darkroom Door Wilderness Sets Vol 1 and 2) in black ink.
