Well its been a bit hectic here this week with the kids being off school and having to visit family etc. So today I thought I needed a play day. I decided to make a card for a man, they are so difficult to make for. This is what I have come up with. I just love this set.
The image is from Summer by the Sea on pg 48 of the UK catalogue. It is one of the more expensive sets but when you actually break the price down its not that expensive. £4.82 per stamp, I don't think you would get those quality images for that price. They are so verstile. I stamped using Stazon in black and then coloured using my Prisma pencils and Sansador (low odour mineral spirit). I matted it onto a piece of old olive cardstock that had been cut out using my nestabilities.
I also used the background stamp from the Polka Dots and Paisley on pg 51. I stamped all over on creamy caramel cardstock using Versamark. Then I used the stampin pastels and a dauber as an applicator and dabbed chalk all over the Versamark as I don't haver this ink pad yet (building my stock slowly). I then cut a piece of Not Quite Navy cardstock and using the spiral punch, punched along the edge. This was all pieced together as shown in the picture then the image was mounted with the dimensionals.
I have left off my sentiment for now as I am not sure who is going to be the recipient.
