We're getting back into our term time routine here, which means the kitchen table has seen no crafty action this week. I've been doing a bit of hand sewing here and there, which doesn't require any setting up. Clearing away only involves throwing the hexies back in their bag and can be done at the drop of a hat.
Instead of a desk, I've got the remaining two cards from last week's class to share.
Sticking with the Lift Me Up stamp set, I paired it with Timeless Textures to build the background. I like the contrast between the clean white base and the balloons stamped on kraft card. Lifting them with foam pads for depth. I inked the sentiment stamp selectively, with a marker, to get the part of it I wanted for this card.
For the final card, I stamped in the same ink as the first. Using different card stock has changed the colour of the balloons quite dramatically. The background square is cut with a stitched framelit and stamped with the Watercolour Wash background. Another favourite of mine for a quick and effective result.
There you have it. Four quite different cards from the same stamp set. I like to show the versatility. Which is your favourite?
Linking up with Julia and the Deskers, before I head out in the dark. Hoping the lighter mornings are not far off now.
PS The card that I was working on last week is here for those that asked to see it.
