Yesterday I had an inky day!
The theme over at Less is More this week is a sketch
I had an idea inspired by my new stamps but they were far too big! so I finally had a 'light bulb moment' & got out my neglected shrink plastic.
After a lot of playing around - note to self & a tip for others, read the instructions! & don't use dye ink - it smudges & rubs off, hence the very inky fingers!
I started out by just stamping the images & shrinking them.
Then added the touch of gold
and finally coloured the whole image
The background was made using distress inks, firstly I used the browny colours & then used the blue after thinking of airmail envelopes :-) This was then stamped with the postal cancellation stamp
& the shrink plastic images popped on top.
I chose the sentiment Celebrate as I thought the cards could be used for various occasions & stamped this straight onto the card.
So I ended up with 3 cards on this theme :-)
