Hope you are doing well? I am running late today.
So looking forward to the long weekend!
Hoping to spend some time in the garden.
So here’s a little Gardening step-by-step card using our little
and it’s mask.
Stamp the Framer using Black Archival
Mask off the outside with Post-Its, leaving a little stamp-edge.
Stamp the wheelbarrow into the frame with Black Adirondack.
Add a baby sun/moon.
Load your Brayer with Meadow on the Mat,
Roll in the lawn, and add a few tufts with the make-up sponge.
Load your Brayer with Cloudy Blue on the Mat,
Add the sky.
Add the clouds with the Clarity Cloud Mask
and a make-up sponge.
Depending on where you live, and how you feel,
this can be adjusted.
Add the garden fork in black,
but position the tips of the prongs on a torn scrap of paper,
so that the fork looks set in the ground.
Remove the Post-Its. Nice!
Time for some masking.
Cover up the whole stamp,
so that we can add some grass around the outside.
Just line up the torn copy paper with the tufts on the inside of the pic, and carry them on into the neighbour’s yard!
Less is more…
Now stamp the fork back over the original image.
In black again.
Remove the mask and
frank the stamp with the Thank you stamp.
Oh and the best bit:
Add a couple of little birds from the Birdhouse Set.
Colour in the Wheelbarrow with a pencil,
trim the card to size,
Add the Queen in the corner with balck archival.
This is a very useful little Postage Stamp Set!
Season the edges with a blending tool,
Replace the XL Stamp mask,
and add a little shadow around all 4 sides…
Blues to the top,
and black to the bottom.
Now remove the mask,
and mount to a complimentary paper.
That’s it for today.
A Perfect Man’s card!
or should I say,
a great card for the man in your life!
Time to get out there and enjoy the springtime.
