I recently bought this unmounted stamp from the US, I am totally in love with it! It's from Another Stamp company. I just used some double sided tape on the back to adhere it to my block and it stamps wonderfully.
So I decided to pair it with some already made alcohol ink backgrounds and see what I could come up with.
The first is a generic card that can be used for a birthday or fathers day or any even really. I swiped my distress ink on the card base around the edges, I then mounted my stamped image onto my pre-prepared alcohol ink background. My stamp image was stamped onto a wet distress stain background to give it a more washed out distressed feel. I stamped and fussy cut the pawn from a vintage set of stamps from recollections.
The next card I stamped with a Fiskars Harlequin Background stamp. I spritzed my image with water and blotted quickly a couple of times to fade the image even more. I cut a cog with my cuttlebug and the Tim Holtz Gears Movers and Shapers and coloured it with distress stain.
I have another card I am working on I just need to find a travel sentiment for the top. I will post it when it's done. Hope you like my man cards :) Thanks for stopping by.
