Penny Farthing Eclectic Stamp Project Ideas

Darkroom Door - Wednesday, August 12, 2015
Hello! Today we are sharing projects created with the Penny Farthing Eclectic Stamp

Rachel Greig has created a vintage style card: 

Stamp Penny Farthing Eclectic Stamp onto cream cardstock using Archival Jet Black ink pad. Sponge around edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Mount onto black cardstock. Emboss kraft cardstock using Sizzix Tim Holtz Collage Embossing Folder and sponge Vintage Photo Distress ink over the raised areas to bring out the detail. Mount onto black cardstock and wrap black ribbon around the bottom. Adhere Penny Farthing panel to the top and adhere entire panel to folded kraft card. 

Robyn Wood shows great use of colour with her card:

This card features a masking technique and crayon resist to give a bit of a vintage feel to the image. Masking is made simpler by stamping onto a large sticky note and trimming out the image.

Stamp Penny Farthing onto white card (approx. 9cm x 8cm) using black Archival Ink. Mask the image and overstamp with Scratches Background stamp using Archival Aquamarine ink. Draw over parts of the image with a white crayon to highlight. Sponge the wheels with Mustard Seed Distress ink and around the image with Evergreen Bough Distress Ink. Wipe over the areas with crayon to remove excess ink. Distress the edges of the card and sponge with Peacock Feathers Distress ink. Use torn cardstock for layering, firstly with black and then attach to a larger piece of dark yellow cardstock. Tie with twine and attach to a black card front. Embellish with a metal mini gear over the small wheel and use a metal word band as a greeting.
