Oh Hello! Nice to see you again! And welcome to all my new followers!! Here we are with my second project for Creative Expressions. This week I have created a couple of cards using 2 of the Singles stamps, Thank You and Get Well Soon. I used the Thank You stamp last week on the Treasure Chest to make a chunky black cartouche but this week I have used it, and the 'partner' stamp in a classic way .. .. .. .. .. .. as a stamp!
With both images I used a moist brush to draw the ink from the stamped lines to colour parts of the image. For the Thank You card I drew the colour into the petals to emphasize the flowers but with the Get Well Soon card I kept the design white and coloured the background area. The blue Thank You card has a look of Delft about it don't you think?
Sometimes clean and simple is enough. There is a certain elegance about crisp white with a dark colour stamped image. One thing is for sure, I have created a project that is quick, elegant and easy to make. Quite a contrast from the Treasure Chest of last week. You see what I mean when I say I shoot off in a different direction!!
I hope you have enjoyed this project? The stamps I used are here, (click to link)
