2 Stamps, 2 Ink Pads & 2 Punches :)

Good Evening Everyone...

Well, it's been a busy old day, with one thing or another!

It's not long now until collection 3 (can you believe it!) of my Sentimentally Yours Stamps is released (but I will tell you more about that nearer the time) :-)

I can tell you that I will be at a few of the Craft Shows with them this year and, again, I will list them for you soon :)

Anyhoo, I wanted to show you another way in which you can use your distress inks.

As you know (surely by now) I love distress inks and love to make the most of them so, with this card, I have used them with a couple of butterfly punches in 2 different ways.

The first white layer, I punched out a mix of the butterflies, used low tack tape to stick them around the edge of the layer and then inked over them, with Faded Jeans first, then a touch of Frayed Burlap. (Save a couple of the inked over butterflies for decoration later) :-)

The second white layer, I used the negatives from the punched out shapes as stencils, to ink through, again with the same two colours.

Here's what I used:

And here's the card :)

Hope you like it!

Couple of Distress Inks, bit of card and my stamps :)

Good Evening Everyone...

Crikey! It's been a while since I posted (sorry!), but I have been incredibly busy (and poorly!)
Still got torn tendons in my left hand, surprising how much you take it for granted,.. still, at least I know in 4-6 weeks it will heal!

Anyhoo, I wanted to show you this card, made simply using a few distress inks, some cardstock, couple of punches and my own stamps!

What I've used - 
2 Sheets of My own brand inking card (designed especially for inky techniques)
Half a sheet of black cardstock
Couple of woodware butterfly punches
Couple of woodware circle punches
Black fine liner pen
My Sentimentally Yours A5 Circle Frame & Flourish Collection Stamps

Quite easy to do, just mask of the areas with paper and a punched circle, so your base card layer is all in one piece as opposed to adding punched circles.

The second circle and sentiment circle are the only ones raised with foam pads :)

Even if I say so myself, I think this stamp set if brill and offers great choice and value!
If you want to purchase the set for yourself, they are on my website and I have added a link in the picture so just click it :)

Anyhoo, hope you like the card, have a go yourself!

Happy Crafting!
