So this summer must be the wettest summer on record. I really can't remember a summer as wet as this. It's really getting me down now. It has stopped me doing all the jobs I have wanted to catch up on this holiday.
I shouldn't be surprised really, there is always something to mess to up my plans. Usually it's something involving me injuring myself and being incapacitated for several weeks.
For these cards, I purchased digital stamps from
(Click on the link to go to the website.)
You can buy the images as rubber stamps as well as in digital form from the website.
I usually buy the rubber version when I go to craft shows, but I was in hurry and the craft show isn't until next year and I wanted something I could colour RIGHT NOW, so I chose digital stamps.
The plus side to digital stamps is delivery is almost instant and I didn't have to leave the house to get them, saving me time, postal costs and hubby's fuel. lol.
If you have never tried digital stamps yet, I recommend you give them a go at least once. The bonus to having digital stamps is you can re size the images to fit any card.
The down side to digital stamps is if you don't back up your pc (like Me) and your pc goes kaput, you've lost your entire collect of images.
The background for the two cards above were created by sponging three different coloured inks randomly over the card stock until the card was covered and the colour was quite intense, then I over stamped used a seaweed stamp and the darkest ink of my three.
I used Stampin' Up s: Marina Mist, Night of Navy and tempting turquoise on the top card.... Bashful Blue , Almost Amethyst and Night of Navy inks on the card card in the middle. I over stamped the sponging using the seaweed stamp from the by the tide stamp set.
The last card I used printed paper in masculine colours. I won't add the sentiments until I know who the card is going to and what the occasion is.
