A few weeks back, I went to the Stamp Magic show at Doncaster and I bought a few more Inkylicious stamps to add to my ever growing collection. When I recently saw the Rubber Dance July Colour Challenge, knew this was the perfect opportunity to take out my stamps one of my new stamps and get it inked up for the first time and here's the card that I've made for the challenge:
I knew that I would be using quite a lot of water on this project and so I used a glossy card as it doesn't buckle when the water is added. I started by putting the three colours onto my a piece of acetate and then spritzing them with water before smooching the colours onto my card. When I was happy with the colour, I stamped the eye in VersaFine Black Onyx before embossing with a detailed black powder. I then added several drips under the eye in the three colours to look like tear drops. Next, I used my Ink Dusters to add more colour and also a star stencil over the colours to add a little more interest.
The card was just a little too big for an A6 card, so I used a square card and added a few Tim Holtz Floral die cuts in black to finish the card off.
The stamp is by Inkylicious and the inks that I've used are: Distress Fossilized Amber; Wilted Violet and Adirondack Raspberry.
Wishing you all a happy and colourful week and I'll be back with you on Thursday to share some exciting news about the next Crafty Individuals show on Hochanda x
