Hi everyone! A new week and a new challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog, A Cameo Appearance. Such a fun theme!
My grandmother had a vintage cameo brooch, which I can remember very well. I thought the Henry & Harriet stamp by Darkroom Door fit well with this theme and decided to make a card with it as a focal piece. You can use any cameos to embellish the card.
For the background, I aged a piece of manila cardstock with Tsukineko Walnut Ink Crystals, which give a really nice effect. Dilute the crystals in warm water. While the paper was still wet, I sprinkled some dry crystals on the paper. The background was stamped with Darkroom Door splatter stamps and script stamp.
I stamped the image with Archival Ink and coloured it with Derwent Inktense pencils. It was also splattered with some Walnut Stain Distress Ink.
this pen nib stamp, which has seven different pen nibs. I stamped them on leftover walnut stained paper and cut three of them out.
I hope you will join us this week! As always, on random participant wins a $50 gift voucher from Simon Says Stamp.
Thank you for the visit!
