'S' is for 'Splodge N' Stamp' Part 2

Well I was sat in my craft room thinking of what to do for our 'S' for Stamping?

 I was struggling really, my mojo had gone because I think I had been so busy with the launch of SplodgeAway for Create and Craft,  which was a huge success!!

 Our summer has disappeared so I thought I would try and create something rainy and cloudy not that I want to put anyone more down in the dumps with the miserable weather LOL

Project By Jimbo aka Sue Jimson
Anyway this is what I came up with...I used an 8x8 card I then put some Easy Ink card through the calibur using a Butterfly and Swirls mask made by Mr SplodgeAway himself :) I love this mask its so very versatile. I used three blue distress inks one being the very appropiately named Stormy Sky and Faded Jeans and Tangled Glass these blended beautifully and so easily using the SplodgeAway mat.

I then stamped all over the card with versamark 'frost' and used a holographic embossed powder to give it a bit of a sparkle. I punched holes around the card and put some vintage twine through from creative expressions.

I used a crafty individuals stamp I bought from Suzicraft and stamped with faded blue distress ink and embossed it with cosmic shimmer ultra thick embossing powder. I attached it to some gingham cardstock which I had edged with stormy sky and another piece I tore off the edges and edged that with stormy sky distress ink.

I made a couple of clouds which I edged in stormy sky and used a creative expressions stamp for the sentiment...made a little double bow from the twine and then used the pearls in blue on the butterfly trails on the mask.

I hope you like it and I hope the next card I design has some sunshine in it.

Bye for now huggles everyone

  2. Hi Sue I posted on here this afternoon but it hasn't come up? Anyway it was just to say what a lovely card, and what a clever layout I think it has.

  3. I love this card - it is rainy and cloudy but has cheered me up! Mind you it is rather hot here in Nottingham. I love the blue shades in the Distress Inks - they are all so compatible.

    Will pop by again to check out your cards.

    Hugs Sue P xx
