Marjie Kemper applied Distress Inks to the Pressed Flowers Collage stamp with an Ink Blending tool, using a post-it 'mask' to shield the postmark portion of the stamp.
Using the negative part of the mask to shield the rest of the card, Marjie applied the green distress ink used on the bottom of the card to the postmark.
She applied embossing ink to the entire card and heat set it with clear embossing powder. The same technique was used on the metal parts, but with distress paint and embossing powder.
Sephi has some lovely projects to share with us...
Hels has also been having fun with this stamp! Check out her wonderful projects:
Card 1 is most defintely my "confort zone" of neutral tones. The colours blended onto the background are Antique Linen, Frayed Burlap and Walnut Stain. The stamping is in Jet Black Archival ink and the sentiment is from the Bright Blossoms Wordstrip, cut out and coloured with Distress Ink.
Card 2 is a bit more adventurous! I decided to use the stamp as a resist image. Starting with applying Ranger's Glue & Seal to the stamp, stamping onto cream card and then zapping with a heat tool to dry the stamping. I used Crushed Olive and Broken China DI blended over the top of the stamping to make it pop. The sentiment is also from the Bright Blossoms Wordstrip (did I ever mention I am highly addicted to Wordstrips?)
And finally, Card 3 sees me getting even more adventurous and getting the old Brayer out! I do love a spot of brayering and it is something I always seem to forget to do. For the background I applied Crushed Olive, Broken China and Seedless Preserves Distress Stains to my craft sheet and picked up the colours using the Speedball brayer I have... it is nice and big so picks up more colour. I repeated the brayering on some more card for the mat. Again, the words... yep, from the Bright Blossoms... did I ever say I LOVE Wordstrips?
And there you have it! Have a wonderful day and thanks for looking!
