Today I am showing the three remaining Clean and Simple cards that are currently featuring in issue 23 of Creative Stamping magazine.
I just had to find a way to use the pheasant stamp, I have a bit of a thing for our feathery friends (as those of you who know me well will know). The scale of this bird stamp however doesn’t fit that naturally with that of the landscape. Stamping the pheasant the cream card and layering it in front of the stamped landscape image (on the blue) I think I was able to overcome the issue. The sweep of the tail gives a brilliant edge (frame) for the fields.
This card uses only three of the free stamps you get with the issue, but stamped in repetition is very effective. I had the idea that the ladybirds were wandering around the page, so stamping them first and masking the I was able to stamp the flowers in the background and gradually build up a layer of ink to create the background. Again as I had done before, this is stamped onto glossy card.
This last card is super simple with lots of white space. It can be tempting to fill up all space on the card front, but a by embossing the front panel of the card blank you are adding subtle interest.
Who would have thought too that a blue rabbit would look so at home…..LOL! i was questioning myself (I’m a bit of a stickler for what’s right), but my boys wouldn’t think twice about colouring a rabbit blue…… so I didn’t either, hehe!
Thank you again for stopping by. Hope you have liked what I’ve made. See you again soon.
