The Great Outdoors!
This is the theme of the
Eureka! Stamps Challenge
this week. Be sure to check out the particulars on the
I decided to use 2 images from
"Lg Tree" (#15302) and
"Leaf Background" (#26901)
I used VersaFine ink for the background image.
I stamped it onto white card stock,
then stamped it again on another piece of card stock.
The second stamping is what I used on these cards.
I wanted it to be a little more subtle.
I then cut a circle from a piece of very light weight paper.
I laid the paper over the background image
and inked the circle with Distress ink.
Then I stamped the tree image onto the circle.
This panel was then adhered to a card base
that had been inked with the same
Distress ink colors as the circle.
This second card I used the same technique,
but once I had inked the green circle,
I took away the mask and replace it
with the circle that had been cut out
and inked around the circle with yellow Distress ink.
I wanted to give a kind of bright yellow sunny feel to the background.
My daughter likes the second card better,
but I kind of like the first one.
What do you think?
Leave a comment and let me know.
I hope you have been inspired in some way.
Maybe to try a new technique,
try some inking
or just to participate in the challenge.
Thanks for stopping by today, come again soon.
Until next time, Happy Crafting!
