Happy Thursday everyone! Today I have another week of Miss Ink Stamps fantastic inspiration. This time I used only one stamp set for my entire card. Sometimes it’s nice not to need a stack of products to create something awesome! I get the mixing and matching but doing more with less is awesome!
I started by choosing a couple of images from It’s All Relative, stamping and coloring them with copic markers. I used the scan-n-cut to cut them out and glued them together with liquid glue.
I took an A2 piece of white cardstock and stamped the two atom images from the set and stamped them randomly all over it. When you’re doing something like this, be sure to stamp some off the edge of the paper to create the illusion of continuation off the page.
After the panel was covered, I didn’t like it at all. Honestly, it wasn’t doing anything for me. But I don’t like to give up so I took a blending brush and inked the edges a little with the same color ink I stamped with. That was a little better but I kept going. I added tea dye distress ink to the edges and then more blue. I kept going back and forth with light layers until it was looking cool. Then I spritzed it with a distress sprayer and that’s when the magic happened! I love how it reacted with the inks differently. Also, exactly why I chose the sentiment that I did to stamp on the desk.
To offset the stark white edges on the images I inked them just a touch with the tea dye distress ink before adding foam tape and popping them up on a vellum circle. I hid tape runner behind the images and added that to the background panel and trimmed anything hanging off the edge.
Last, I used liquid glue to adhere the whole panel to a card front and came in with glossy accents for the character’s eyes. I finished the card off with white gel pen highlights and the whole card is finished.
