Hello. Welcome. Over at Stamplorations this month the lovely ladies asked to CASE my Penny the Pig tag. Oh gosh, how sweet you are. Honored. Then 2 days ago they posted some more lovely inspiration. I decided to try and recreate Kim's card. I liked the bright colours and the clean look. Although it all started to plan, unfortunately my ink pad took on a life of it's own, and it all ended up a bit grungy. Maybe it should have been a sympathy card rather than a congrats......
I used distress inks and the chevron stamp from Stamplorations Mixed Media Grunge. Often when I'm trying to copy a technique it doesn't go so well but I was really pleased with this. Very well explained Kim. Then I stamped and embossed the Congratulatons from the Birds and Blooms set. I decided to ink the edges!! It was going great till I got a smudge!! Ah well, let's smudge all over. Still thinking of maybe changing the congrats to with sympathy........ Will definitely be using this technique again. Probably with less smudges ha ha.
