Stamps: Miss You (My Cute Stamps), Teeny Trees (Waltzing Mouse)
Card base: 9.9cm square, linen white (Paper Mill Direct)
Other: Studio g Fresh Chalk
This technique was born from the CAS card I made the other day. The one that took so long to come together.
I love the fine lines of the 'Miss You' set by My Cute Stamps, but wanted to re-create them on a single layer card. When I stamped these on my standard card base, they bled a bit & ruined the effect I was after. But I wanted the linen texture on my card as well. I'm too greedy. I thought about embossing, but only have limited colours available. Then PING! A light bulb moment.
What I do have are some cheapy chalk sets from Studio G, in the colours I was considering. What happens if you stamp in Versamark & apply a little chalk? You get to keep the fine lines & the paper texture. Result. And you can blend them a bit.
Hope you like it.
