Hearts and Flowers
I don't know about you, but I am always inspired by the kind of cards that you can make using only inks and stamps, as opposed to my usual style which includes a whole lot of colouring.
I have collected a lovely batch of little stamps over the years, from both Stamps by Judith and Cardio…they are real staples in my world as I use them a lot for fillers and backgrounds, but occasionally I will go for it and make a card using just the stamps. Call it my attempt at being artistic!!
So here's a card I made a while back now, using Stamps by Judith stamps and 'sticks'.
The heart is free form stamped using a little sprig stamp which I used to create first and second generation images. To create the effect I made a heart template out of scrap paper and then put it on the card and stamped around the edges to get a basic shape. I then removed the template and filled the heart out before adding flowers and pearls for the centres.
Finally I used a what is actually a little snowflake stamp to make the border, but if you press it down harder it looks like one of those spiky flowers.
I hope you like my attempt at 'art', and here are some challenges that I would like to enter:
