I am here with a take on a card I saw displayed on an inspiration board at the NEC last month.
I was really impressed with the whole range of cards that had been produced using this stamp set .. .. they looked really "different".
The finished image on the card looks like it is a stamp in its own right .. .. .. but it isn't. You make the image whatever you want it to be by masking and layering different elements of the set to get the finished result you want. For my first attempt I don't think things went too badly.
So here is my first attempt:
Images: Hobby Art Clear "CS011D" Harbour
Sentiment: Hobby Art Clear "CS016D" General Greetings
Backing Paper: Funky Hand - I Do Funky Word Book (plus scraps from the box for what are supposed to look like bricks).
Buttons and cord from the stash box
This is the stamp set I worked with (just to give you some idea of what you have to make your image):
I looked at the photograph and tried to work from memory .. .. the only real difference is that on mine it looks like either "the tide has gone out" or I have high "flood banks" LOL!!!
I did buy the squiggly embossing folder too but didn't want to copy the card too directly so will use that on something else another time.
You just wouldn't believe how many photographs I have taken this morning (and the variety of places I took them) in an attempt to get a decent one - everywhere is so dull today - so I had to resort to the bathroom .. .. .. and this is the only shot that didn't involve a bath tap poking out from the edge of the picture LOL!!! It is still a little on the dark side but if I get the chance of something better later then I will replace it.
Take care everyone and thanks for calling by .. .. happy Wednesday!!
Love Jules xx
