I have been busy in the craft room this afternoon. It has been sunny out but there was a cold wind blowing when I took the dog out. What better excuse do you need to get in there and play.
As it's Saturday it means another challenge over at Less is More. This means a bit of thinking as it's
One Layer week, this time with shadow stamping.
I like shadow stamping especially in a landscape context. It creates depth if used correctly.
Well here is the result of my playing around with the distress inks and a silhouette stamp set from Inkylicious I bought about 3 or 4 years ago at the Harrogate September show. I haven.t used it really but it allowed me to create an overhanging tree effect.
I masked off the bottom half of a A6 card blank and added some DI's to the top panel. I used Weathered Wood, Iced Spruce, Bundled Sage, Broken China and Tumbled Glass. I stamped the foliage using Versafine Onyx Black. I added extra texture by over stamping a Kaisercraft manuscript stamp in Weathered Wood, removed the mask and stamped a tendril into the white space and added the LOTV greeting.
It was great fun even if this was the second attempt, as the first mask didn't go right across and a tiny bit of twig found it's way onto the bottom half of the card. Arrrgh.
Well happy crafting everyone.
