Hello, hope you're all having a good weekend. Card today is a non cute one - I know, shocking! But every now & again I get the urge to mess around with just stamps & inks (which is how this stamping bug started for me before I discovered prismas and copics and the influx of all these cute character stamps).
So I dug out some old and some new Hero Arts stamps (think most of my old wooden blocked stamps are either Hero arts, Stampendous or Penny Blacks!) and came up with this
Just basic resist embossing stamping and good old distress inks. In case anyone interested, here's quick run through of how I did it.
Then I just cut down to size and distressed and inked the edges before making up into card. Obviously had to use my Martha border punches in there somewhere and I seem to naturally want to make all my layers 'wonky' so not quite sure what that says about me LOL Think it would have looked better with some stitching around the layers but I still not got myself a sewing machine so will have to do without for now.
So, that's my 'arty farty' card out of my system for now, so cuteness will resume next time :) . . . I was tempted to sit a cute charcter in the corner of my stamped piece - thought one of my sitting Tildas would have looked cute but stopped myself :)
Thanks for swinging by & enjoy what's left of your Sunday.
