I have two cards to share today, both are for a Stamptoberfest challenge to use the 'white negative technique' and for Hero Arts October challenge (holiday card theme). One of the October challenge themes is to do Christmas cards using non-Christmas stamps, something I enjoy doing. Here's the card:
The fabric background stamp was stamped with Colorbox Frost White and clear embossed. Then Antique Linen and Brushed Corduroy were applied with a sponge dauber to colour the non-stamped areas. Finally, the piece was stamped with a script stamp using Brushed Corduroy. The ink was wiped off from the embossed areas.
Supplies: Hero Arts: Large Fabric Design CG244, Merriest Christmas Wishes CG377; Tim Holtz Sizzix On the Edge die; Distress ink Antique Linen and Brushed Corduroy; Colorbox Frost White; Cuttlebug embossing folder; lace; buttons.
The white negative technique works best with stamps that have quite a bit of open areas, otherwise you don't really see the the script stamp, and I thought this tree would work well.
Again, the image was stamped with Colorbox Frost White and clear embossed. Stormy Sky was sponged on top and then a text stamp (with Swedish Christmas songs) was stamped on top using Faded Jeans. The background was made with Distress Stains on watercolour paper and then stamped. I stamped the Christmas song stamp again on kraft paper and cut out a line to use as a sentiment.
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! Have a great day!
