I guess you could say I’m in a “new” mood. I’m ready to take a nap, wake up rested and start my weekend off on the right foot. I’m filling this weekend with as much crafting, friends and good beer as possible. You can’t go wrong with that combination. :) I wanted to share a card I made with a brand new stamp that I picked up from my trip to my LSS the other day. It’s the stamp of the month, and that gives me a great opportunity to try out this new manufacturer, LaBlanche. The cool thing about this stamp is that it’s a super, super detailed image pressed into silicon and mounted on a foam block. It stamps really easily and with a lot of detail. Very cool! I’m excited to try out more stamps like this. I hope my favorite online shops start to carry them soon, but for now it looks like you can get them at JoAnn.com and BlueMoonScrapbooking.com if you want to give them a try.
See? The stamp is so detailed that the coloring was super easy. For the flower, I just used V01 all over, added some V09 in the shaded areas and then blended it all together with the V01 again. Super easy and lots of dimension. The stem and leaves are YG67 and G85 using the same technique. From there, everything else is done with various shades of distress ink. Cool, huh?
