The Old Days by Sioux Jenneys

Hi! All you fellow inkers ;) I thought I'd share a postcard (6x4 inch) today with you :)


1. Stamp the "For Men Only" image in Versafine and use Distress Inks brushed corduroy and bundled sage as a watercolour for the trousers and shirt and cut out around the outline of the man on the front edge.
2. Stipple Adirondack Dye Inks in wild plum and butterscotch on the base card.
3. Stamp the Stampers Anonymous clowns from the big top plate in Archival sepia and colour the middle clowns hat using Distress Ink aged mahogany as a watercolour and worn lipstick for the lips.
4. Stamp the top half of the W.J. Hawker stamp from ephemera 1 plate in Archival coffee at the side of the clowns to fill in the space at the edge and the bottom half of the stamp that says Bournemouth on the bottom edge.

(don't re-ink for a subtle second impression)
5. Stamp the T!m faux staples at the bottom in worn lipstick.

6. Mask the clowns and stamp the word Cirque in Distress Ink weathered wood.
7. Stamp the letter tiles from scrabble and tags plate onto some card printed with an image of cork and cut out.

I'm giving the cork image away as a free digital download ;) Just click here.

Just hit the blue Download button when you get there and save to a folder on your computer.

It is sized at approx. 9.5cm square...a small image especially for stamping the scrabble tiles on (or any other words for that matter). You can obviously enlarge this in your own software if you desire...but not too much or the cork starts to look like crazy paving slabs!!! LOL
Have fun :)



I know the clowns freak some of you out...but it's healthy to be freaked once in a while :)

See you again soon!
