Hi there fellow Crafters,
Today's share is two cards, one sad and one happy. I thought I'd show you how you can use the same stamp to make a happy card, but also toned down, for a Sympathy card.
I have of course used the fantastic new
Visible Image, Flower INKognito Stamp, I love it, plus Live Life Now and the 'More than Words' Sympathy Set.
The Happy card background is made using 4 colours of Distress ink, one in each corner and blended into each other, I kept adding more and more ink to get nice and vibrant colours.
I splashed the card using water on my fingers, stamped the flower and sentiment using Black Versafine and when it was dry, I painted the flower using a paint bruch, a little water and some Pink Liquid Pearls, spodging some of it to one side, along with Shabby White Frantage powder. I added green Stickles to the stem, and highlighted the sentiment.
The Sympathy card is basically done in the same way, but using less ink on the background, making it lighter in tone, adding a little Stickles to the flower, and using Shabby Black Frantage to one side
I stamped the middle of the Sympathy card, with the wonderful poem that comes in the Sympathy Set, the lovely
Helen Michelle of Visible Image wrote it and it say's it all.
I hope you've considered entering the Visible Image Challenge, the theme is 'Anything Goes', so easy as long as you use at least one Visible Image Stamp, or more of course.
You can also enter in the Visible Image Face Book Group, just comment that you want it in the Challenge.
Thank you so much for popping by, and please leave me a comment.
Hugs to you all, Pauline xxx
