Now as you may or may not know, the Artistic Stamper sells loads of wonderful Collage stamps. But today I wanted to do something slightly different, and so I created my own collage using different stamp sets to create said postcard.
These are the stamps I used:
Swirls Splats and Dots
Calligraphic Mat 12
I cut a piece of 4 x 6 smooth stamping card and stamped the rose from the Botanical 3 set in Archival Jet Black, coloured it with Distress Markers in Peeled Paint, Victorian Velvet, Pine Needles and Aged Mahogany. Then I masked it and stamped the writing from the Calligraphic Mat 12 over it in Archival Coffee.
Kling On and trimming them. As you can see I did not manage to do it perfectly but decided to "embrace my imperfection" to use the phrase of a certain famous person in the crafting world.... I also stamped the word Postcard and the stamp from the Postage 1 and Ephemera sets in the Coffee Archival.
Crowded Attic paper collection by Tim Holtz and embellished with some lace, string and an Ideaology word band
Hope you liked my project and see you next time! I'll post thumbnails of the stamps I used below.
