It's been a very busy couple of days, my Granddaughters called and asked for a sleepover and of course I said yes. We love it when they come over and spend time with us. We shopped, baked cookies, played cards, Evelyn had a bottle war with Grandpa and then came into my craft room to work on a tree she wants to add to her art journal. She really enjoys playing with me in the craft room. After she finished her tree she made a card for Mommy and a card for Daddy. It was lots of fun!
Well onto my cards. I got some new stamps from Altenew and went to work playing with them to get a feel for what I wanted to do. When I was done I was very happy with the results.
Altenew Golden Garden stamps
Ranger Distress ink (Mustard Seed, Peeled Paint, Abandoned Coral)
Ranger Watercolor Paper
Ranger Archival Ink Black
Recollections alphabet stamp sets #296432 card 1 #119928 card 2
Just Rite Cling Script Background stamp # CL-02157
I stamped the Image in black and then using my Ranger distress markers I colored the second stamp with Abandoned Coral and Peeled paint. At this time I didn't know what I was going to do with them I was just playing. Then I decided they would look nice with a Script background so I masked the flowers and stamped the background, just down the middle of the first card, then the whole background on the second. I used my Ranger blending tools to add Abandoned Coral and Mustard seed to the edges and over the flowers. I just loved the way the first one turned out so I did the same on the second card but this time I left the center untouched. I added French Sentiments, and I was done.
What a great day of Stamping Fun!!
