Hi Folks, I have been working with the new MagicalLandscapes/Fantasy Castles Multibuy stamp set again and wanted to show their versatility. I have made a card with a bit of an Eastern flavour which I am showing you today.
I created a wrinkle free Distress background using Ripe Persimmon and Antique Linen Distress re-inkers, and then stamped a large paisley stamp from Indian Elephant using Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink. I used a palm tree stamp from Peace on Earth showing that Christmas stamps can be used all year round, not just at Christmas! The sentiment is from the Artistic Affirmations stamp set.
I stamped the main image onto a piece of white card using gold embossing powder, and coloured the image with Distress Markers, sticking to the blue and orange theme of the card as much as possible. Finally, I swirled some blue and orange Distress Ink around the edge of the card to soften the white background. I used some Versamark around the edges of the main background card, and added some gold embossing powder, which I heated to melt. Some dark blue card to mat the layers completed the card.
I thought that this would make a great 'Bon Voyage' card for someone heading off on their travels. These castles are so adaptable, and I have lots of plans for different settings, so watch this space!
Thanks for stopping by, xx
