Mid-Month Reminder - January 2020

Hello there,

It's time for some mid-month inspiration over at Stamping Sensations' and our theme this month is 'Favourite Stamps.'  I have so many stamps that I absolutely adore and the one that I'm sharing with you today is one of my go-to favourites as it can be used for so many different occasions.  It's a quite a simple stamp but I always feel that it looks really elegant and it can be using in so many different ways.  I enjoy stamping it with a very pale ink and then colouring to get a water colour effect or stamping it against a colourful background simply with black ink.  The card that I'm sharing with you today has been stamped with VersaMark ink and then heat embossed in white.  I've then coloured the image using white ink and then used coloured pencils over it to add so colour.  It's quite simple but I think the white against the Kraft card looks really effective.  The stamp is from Crafters Companion and the sentiment stamp was a freebie from a magazine.


It would be great if you could join us as there's still plenty of time and don't forget that we are very generously sponsored this month by fabulous:

'Tattered Lace'

Please remember that Stamping Sensations is a 'STAMPING' challenge, so we must see a stamped image, sentiment or quote as the focal element of your artwork, this means: Stamping must be the central point of attention and interest.

All the details of our challenge rules can be found here

That's all from me for now, so I'll wish you a happy and peaceful day x

Your lovely bloom looks beautiful in the pale colours against the Kraft cardstock Sandra, something I forget to do despite having a stack of it.

Oh, this is delightful Sandra, so delicate and sweet!! Such amazing colouring! Always love white embossing on kraft, and your colouring with pencils on white ink makes the flower very translucent and lovely! Thanks for sharing your technique!

Stunningly beautiful and I can see why the beautiful flower image is a favourite and as you say you can do it in so many different ways. The kraft with the delicate colouring looks beautiful Sandra x.
