It's tuesday again so that means it's Hop day with Queen Kat, if you'd like to do the whole hop, just click here and follow the links. Each tuesday I post my project on the Whimsical Ink Sorority blog which is part of the Hop. I like to also post here on my blog so my visitors get to see them too.
I started out with two ATC sized pieces of kraft card, used Tim Holtz distress ink around the edges to give me a grungey effect, one with Brushed Corduroy and the other with Chipped Sapphire.
Using DI again I stamped some QKD images on to the backgrounds before adding the gorgeous mermaids which I'd coloured with Promarkers and Copics. I wanted to demonstrate the versatility of larger stamps, using the whole of the stamp on the brown ATC and just a 'cameo' cut from the full image with a nestabilities die for the blue one. The same image looks so different when you use only part of it don't you think?
I 'aged' the lock and key charms with a black Promarker and attached them with dark blue organza ribbon. The flowers were cut with a Martha Stewart punch and the gems were from my stash. The 'bronze' sentiment on the brown ATC was from my stash and I attached it with a length of twine.
Til next time - Happy Crafting!
