I've been playing around again. This time I was inspired to pick up my brayer and big and juicy ink pad (which hadn't been used since I bought them last year). It's all thanks to catching the tail end of a program that featured Barbara Grey from Clarity Stamps on Create and Craft TV last weekend. I was amazed at the beautiful things she created. So I took the plunge and for a first go....I'm really pleased with the result. Okay, I know I need practice but it was my first try.
This is my DT card for the Frosted Designs challenge where the theme this week is 'Tree'
I'm entering this into:
Stamping Royalty Challenge - KISS (Keep It Simple Sweetie)
MelJens Designs Challenge - 3d elements (the acetate)
Because I didn't really trust myself to make the foreground without completely messing the image up.....I cheated. I made a raised wrapper for the card with some acetate on which I stamped some bamboo. Well, it does the trick and I really like the extra 3d effect it gives.
Stamps: Tree from Kanban Autumn Silhouettes. Bamboo stamp doesn't have a name on it.
Big and Juicy pad: Waterfall
Airondack Pitch Black ink
Thanks for looking and please take a look at the lovely designs by the rest of the talented DT.
