Live Your Life In Colour


Today I have a quick card featuring the "Live Life In Colour" stamp set from Inkylicious, and trying out my new distress oxide inks.  My grandaughter is mad on zebras so this was an ideal stamp to use for her birthday card.  I thought I would practice a few ideas before making one for her, here is my first creation.


I used papermilldirect white linen and smooth black card with distress oxide inks for the colour, layered onto a white hemp card blank.   The image and sentiment were stamped  onto a strip of card and  masked before adding the inks, the inked strip was spritzed with water and the ink allowed to run a little.  On reflection I will stamp over the coloured strip next time to enable the image to stand out more as the oxides covered the image more than original distress inks would.



The image was layered onto smooth black card and then added to a white hemp card blank.  The remaining sentiment was stamped inside the card and a coloured strip added as for the card front.

Off  to play some more with this fun stamp.
