Today is the fifth and final day of the July release from Neat & Tangled, and it ends with two fabulous stamp sets!
Here’s the card I made using May’s set:
I’m really into background washes at the moment and seem to create a pile of them just ready to use as and when you need them – the one on this card is no different, and simply uses a reinker dotted onto a sheet of acetate and spritzed with water. The inky goodness is then transferred to a piece of cardstock and heat set.
I trimmed the coloured panel down to slightly smaller than my card base, adhered it straight down to a card base and foam mounted a hill at the bottom. I then moved on to colouring one of the sweet dog images from the set – first, I stamped him with Archival Jet Black ink and then used Distress Inks to colour him.
I then fussy-cut the dog out and foam mounted him to the card and above the hill to make it look like he was sitting on it, dreaming about bones!
I stamped a sentiment and a small heart from the set with black ink onto the hill, and stamped the speech bubble on to a piece of scrap cardstock. The bone was stamped onto some light coloured pattern paper and both that and the speech bubble were fussy-cut out and adhered to the card front. The heart was coloured in with Copics and brushed with clear Wink of Stella for some sparkle.
After applying more clear Wink of Stella to the bone, I added a coat of Glossy Accents to it and to the heart. To finish, I added a couple of sequins from the Sunset Shimmer sequin mix.
