Hummingbirds and Classic Cars Cards

Darkroom Door - Thursday, February 09, 2017

Hello everyone!! Kymona from Kreative Kymona here today, with a couple of cards using two of the new release stamps sets, Hummingbirds and Classic Cars
 
Both of these stamps set are amazing and fun to work with but my favorite is the Hummingbird set. The Hummingbird is the National bird of my homeland Jamaica so it was awesome creating with it.

Take a look at the full card:


Here's here how I created this card:
 
1. Cut a piece of old dictionary paper.
2. Apply a light coat of gesso on the dictionary paper. 
3. Add three different inks to the Hummingbird stamp and stamp right on top of the gesso.
4. While the ink is still wet, sprinkle some glitter on top of the image.
5. Heat set for five seconds.
6. Stamp the sentiment using black ink.
7. Distress the edges of the dictionary paper.
8. Adhere the dictionary paper to the black card base using 4 adhesive dots. 
 
I loved this stamp set so much I created another card. Take a look:
 

The technique is pretty much the same as above.

Supplies used:
Darkroom Door Hummingbirds Rubber Stamp Set
Archival Ink Pad: Jet Black
Distress Inks: Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Mowed Lawn
Gesso
Glitter 
Dictionary paper
 
Now onto the Classic Cars stamp set!  Take a look:
 

This stamp set made me think vintage!!  I knew I wanted the cars to look like they once did.
 
For these cards:
 
1. Stamp the image using black ink.
2. Use watercolor pencils to add color to the stamped image.
3. With a paintbrush and water, spread the color till the car is completely colored. 
4. Once the paint dries, stamp the sentiment in black ink.
5. Use vintage ink and add color to the card stock so that it has an older look.
6. Add tire marks under each tire so that the car looks like its moving.

Nice and easy!
