Thanks for stopping by today, especially. I noticed that this is going to be my 100th post! What a fun milestone!
Today I have made a card that is not my normal style. Over at Artsy Inkers, there has been a challenge this month to make an arch with stamps. It has really taken me all month to figure out what to do.
(Click on photos for detail.)
I decided to use an oval stamp as the basic shape of the arbor. Then I stenciled on the outside of the oval with blue ink and below it with greens. I used several of my peg stamps to change the oval into a flower arbor. I also used one of the tiny flowers to add texture to the grass below.
These little bunnies had never been inked before. I fussy cut them and sponged ink to color them. The ink is Distress Pumice Stone, which I knew was a brownish color of grey, but it really is much more brown than I realized.
Art Impressions wants us to take a photo of the stamps we used in the project, and I mixed and matched so many for this project.
Supplies: Gina K Designs Warm Spring Wishes (Oval), Rubber Stamp Tapestry from Cherry Blossom and Herbal Sachet sets, Art Impressions Try-Folds Furries, Hero Arts sentiment, Avery Elle Pigment inks, Versafine Smokey Grey ink, Distress Inks Pumice Stone, Tumbled Glass, Bundled Sage, Peeled Paint, Heidi Swapp Stencil
