Using Imagine’ s Craft Mat, I made a mirror image of the stamp as I wanted to create a background with a repetitive pattern on it. Having a stamp design with one only way to stamp, the Craft Mat kept the VersaFine Clair ink long enough to place the cardstock and capture the stamped image at the reverse direction. The same technique can be used on various materials such as fabric and wood. It could also work well on transparent sheets when you need both side stamped image.
Time: 1 hour
Mark on the craft mat an outline of the cardstock size with a pencil to use a guideline to align your stamps. For this project, a 4 x 6 cardstock cutting is used.
Stamp the birds on the Craft Mat using the Nocturne VersaFine Clair ink pad inside the guidelines. Press the cardstock piece on the craft mat and inside the guidelines.
Stamp to cover the rest of card piece to create the repetitive pattern.
Set the stamped cardstock piece on the front of a card 5 x 7 inch with Tear It! Tape.
Add color details on the flowers with the Fabrico marker in Red Brick.
On a piece of white cardstock, stamp with VersaMark the love word, cover with Imagine’ s red embossing powder and heat set. Distress the edges of the paper.
Use lightweight clay and the rubber mold to make a feather and when dries whitening it further with All-Purpose Ink in White.
Place two side to side layers of Tear It! Tape to match the size of the ribbon and glue the chevron ribbon on the card.
Continue with the Tear It! Tape to set the word “love” on top of the ribbon.
Add rhinestones with the On Point Glue on the flowers.
