Beautiful Impressions Too just started carrying Oxford Impressions rubber stamps. I love thier stamp plates and have used them for years in my art. It's great to now have a local source for these high quality red rubber stamps! Mary had asked me to make up some samples using the Waiting For Mr Darcy set and today was the day.
I started by stamping the images with black Archival Ink on white ultra smooth cardstock and then colored in with my Distress Markers and waterbrush. Once they were completely dry I fussy cut them out. The inkwell is colored in with Wink brush markers in clear & gold for a little shimmer.
For the tag background I used Wendy Vecchi's Archival Ink & Alcohol technique, then sprayed White Linen Dylusions Spray through Tim Holtz's Doily stencil. I finished the edges with Seedless Preserves Distress Ink.
This last card is my favorite of the bunch. I love the white on white design. I made a card for my mother for Mothers Day using the same 'technique'. White on white design with a shot of color. The doily dies are from Cheery Lynn and Heartfelt Creations. I found these highly detailed dies cut best with a thin piece of craft foam between the cardstock and bottom cutting plate (Closest to the Sizzix Magnetic Platform) as a shim. A perfect cut - every time!
Have a creative day!
