A 6 x 6 card using some JOFY stamps on some watered Distress Ink background. I’ve painted in the flowers with Salty Ocean and Mustard Seed distress inks using a water brush. The sentiment is from Indigo Blu – only I think it would be more apt for me to say – “out of my mind …. never coming back”. I edged the topper with Salty Ocean distress ink and then I’ve mounted the topper up on mats and layers of Turquoise blue and basket weave yellow.. Thank you for taking the time to look and I hope you like it x

An A5 card to cheer us up during this awful August weather. I’ve used a Wendy Vechi – Studio 490 stamp, stamped with Seedless Preserve and Picked Raspberry Distress inks onto a Distress Ink watered background. I’ve used fuschia pink and white waffle weave to mat and layer and mount the stamped topper on. It gives it a lovely clean and crisp look, which I like as it shows off the stamping better. Hope you like it and hopefully it will cheer your day now the sunshine has disappeared x
Another A5 stamped card using the “JOFY” flower stamps. These are most definately my favourite type of stamped cards to create at the moment. I really enjoy creating these backgrounds with Distress Inks, stamped straight onto my glass mat and sprayed with water before pressing my background card into it. You never quite know what you are going to get until you turn the card over, so its always a surprise – usually a nice one. It is very rare that I don’t like the effect. I think the 3 inks I used for the background were – Fire Brick?, Ripe Persimmon and Mustard Seed. I stamped the image with a brown Archival ink and then coloured it in with Fire Brick using a water pen. To finish I edged the whole image with Fire Brick for definition before matting and layering and mounting with 3d foam. Hope you like it x
Another A5 card using the Paper Artsy JOFY stamps – have I said they are one of my favourite sets of stamps, lol. I have used a number of blue distress inks with a spray of water on my craft mat to create the background. I have also used Mustard Seed and Picked Raspberry Distress Inks to watercolour the stamped flowers in. To finish I used card the same 2 colours as the flowers to mat and layer and then foam mounted the topper onto white basket weave textured card to keep it bright and clean looking x
A large 10 x 7 card made using some “JOFY” stamps from Paper Artsy. I created the background from distress inks that I had stamped straight onto my craft mat to use the inks to paint the detail on some other stamped images. They were Salty Ocean and Peacock Feathers. I then used some other Distress Inks to paint in the detail of the flowers and butterfly on this card – Seedless Preserve, Mustard Seed and Shaded Lilac. I particularly like this way of making stamped cards. The backgrounds are never the same and using the distress inks to paint in the detail makes the images so bright.
I shall be straying from my prescribed daily schedule for the next few days due to commitments I have this weekend, but shall be sheduling posts containing stamped images for a few days. Hope you like them and enjoy me sharing them with you x
