I needed some super quick cards, so I pulled out one of my all time favourite stamps, the Penny Black fuchsia. Fancied a change, so I stamped it in two colours of Stazon – Timber Brown and Saddle Brown – onto pearlescent ivory card, then embossed with clear powder.
Of course you can’t see the pearlescent finish, so this gives you more of an idea …
Using the same colours, I stamped on matte ‘off white’/cream card but the words stamp wasn’t playing well today, so I had to stamp it again in Versafine Sepia and emboss it. The card itself is pale pink pearlescent. Must be having a pearlescent day, lol – a rarity for me. This also fits this week’s theme over at Crafty Cardmakers.
I also needed another card to accompany something but time was short today, so I pulled a bit of Faux Batik out of my ‘half made’ stash, which just happened to use the same stamp (I have a few of these, waiting to be used) so I sponged on some Adirondack inks, stamped the fuchsia again with some more words and embossed. This one’s a bit ‘in your face’ colour wise, compared to the others.
The green card is actually much greener – not a nice pale green as you see in the photo (unless that’s my monitor, lol). I took photos today but may try scanning before I upload.
Here’s the scan and this is definitely a bit more realistic.
Told you it was ‘in your face’.
Right, just found out we’re being Ofsted inspected next week, so better get some work done…
