Time for DT Thursday again here on the Stamping Bella blog. The weeks seem to be flying by – must be all the stamping fun!
This week Sandiebella has another fab project for you. Put your scoring boards to one side and grab the Distress Inks and blending tools! Click on through for the full step by step guide to this project.
Create your own Patterned Papers
Ink blender or sponge dauber
Cut a piece of white card measuring 3.75″ x 5 7/16″
Using the blender or dauber, sponge in circles, starting from the edge of the paper and working inwards towards the middle
Continue until you have the whole piece of card sponged
Go over the whole thing again, adding more colour
Keep sponging until you are happy with the colour and shading.
Using the distress ink pad, run it around all the edges to get a hard line.
Using the Worn Lipstick and Pumice Stone inks, stamp the Mini Envelope Accents randomly around.
When you are happy with your design, cut another piece of white card measuring 3 15/16″ x 5 5/8″. Make a card base measuring 5.83 x 4.13 inches (Cut an A4 sheet of card in half lengthwise and fold in half).
Adhere all the pieces together to make the card base.
Colour up the Mail Chick and use a tag die to cut it out. Cut some more tags and layer on the front, using 3D foam on some of them. Embellish as desired.
