Vintage Guy Greetings

This card was voted and picked by the design team from Cards in Envy as a First Class badge: “winner#14 Stouten, In the Mailbox as Lisa’s Personal Favorite” 

With this card I was also a WWYS challenge #12 Winner

Ik vind de stempelset Guy Greetings echt fantastisch. Je kan er zoveel kanten mee uit. Dit keer maakte ik een Vintage kaart.
Ik gebruik hier de Distress techniek waarbij je je inkten op een plastic vel drukt, vervolgens met water besproeit en dan je kaart door het mengsel heen haalt. Je weet nooit wat het gaat worden en je krijgt nooit twee keer hetzelfde resultaat.


I really like the stampset Guy Greetings. You can’t do so much with this set. This time I made a Vinatage Man Card.
I used the technique where you tap your inks on a piece of plastic, spray with a little water and  pull your card through the ink. You never know what the outcome will be and it will never be the same.

April Showers Bring May Flowers

A lot of challenges have the theme: April Showers Bring May Flowers. Time to use the stamp: Gorjuss Puddles of Love.

The background is made with Distress Ink that I put on my craft sheet and misted with water. Than I swiped a panel of watercolor paper through the sprayed areas.
For the raindrops I used my handmade stamp (see picture below). First I stamped the raindrops with a light blue ink and than I added glossy accents with Dimensional Magic .
I also used the glossy accents on the boots, now they look like real yellow gumboots!
