Turned out nice again! I am loving the sunnier but cooler days right now, it puts me in the mood to craft which I couldn't summon the enthusiasm for during the HOT (hot HOT) weather!!
|Unmounted rubber designed by RYN|
|Start simple with an ATC which ALSO used NBUS - Huzzah!|
- ATC blank
- White card, cut to ATC size and coloured using Distress Inks: tumbled glass, salty ocean and faded jeans
- Art Journeys water droplets by Ryn image stamped using Distress Inks: salty ocean and faded jeans
- Embossed impressions dolphin image stamped on to white card using Versafine onyx black ink. The white card had been coloured using Distress Inks: weathered wood and pumice stone. I then cut out the dolphin and glued on to my ATC using Aleene's tacky glue
- Kaisercraft sentiment (again with the NBUS) stamped using Memento tuxedo black (the versafine was just too wet for the typeface and would have made a fuzzy impression)
|The finished card - you can't really see it in photo but |
there IS a globe in the centre panel, look hard, it's behind the bicycle!
It shows up waaaay better on the insert ...
- 15cm square white, 300 gsm, scallop edged card and matching sized envelope
- Inkylicious film strip image stamped twice .... once on to base card using Memento rich cocoa and the 2nd time on to a card offcut which I then used as a mask, having first cut out the centre panel.
- Distress Ink - tea dye - applied through the mask using an Inkylicious ink duster
- TPC Studio globe image stamped in the centre panel (through the mask) using the tea dye ink - on reflection, I SHOULD perhaps have used a darker colour but I didn't want to detract from the bicycle image .... ah well, the benefit of hindsight!
- TPC Studio "Travel the World" sentiment and bicycle stamped using Versafine onyx black ink. I stamped the bicycle (through the mask) to simulate the movement of the bicycle
- Brown card and white card for the insert and, as you see below, the design was carried through from the card itself.
|The insert ..... NOW you see the globe!!!|
|Materials used: Inkylicious film strip (and the resulting re-useable mask) and the Travel World set from TPC Studio|
