Hello and welcome!
It's Saturday again and that means it's time already for a new theme at Allsorts challenge! This week it's Lorraine's turn to host and she would like to see something "For a Child". We have some great prizes to give away - a digi prize by Ruth Hamilton Design and some Wizard of Oz stamps. Hope you'll join in for your chance to win!
And here is what I made:
I decided to ink up this cute Mimi stamp from the Penny Black set Big Wish. Stamped with Versafine Onyx on Bristol Vellum paper and I first gave the image a light coloring with distress inks then got my Faber Castell Polychromos out to add more color and some shading. Cutterbee scissors were used for fussy cutting.
As you can see, I didn't fussy cut the balloon string, instead I stamped the image again on my card front. Then layered the Avery Elle heart frame die cut over and finally added the image and balloon with foam tape.
The stamps and dies I used can all be found on Amazon (US):
The beautiful large sentiment is from the Penny Black set Happy Wishes. Thought it was a perfect match for this cute girl that looks like she is making a birthday wish. The small happy birthday sentiment is part of a sentiment from my new Colorado Craft stamp set Big Love.
After all was assembled, I decided I wanted to add some spatter to the card, so I covered my image to avoid any spatter on it and flicked some Dusty Concord ink onto the card. Something I would have preferred to think of before the card was finished, but sometimes I don't think of things until the end.
As mentioned in the post title, I am also sharing the re-make of my "gelli print fail" card. But first I wanted to say a huge thank you for the wonderful tips I received on that post. I really appreciate all your input!
