A Fond Farewell to The Artistic Stamper

Hello lovelies and here's to a happy new year for 2019. Wow - 2019!!!! However, the start of 2019 is slightly bitter sweet as I have decided to leave the team at The Artistic Stamper. 

As the saying goes, "I've got a bit too much on my plate" to continue at the moment and there just isn't enough days in the week! So after having a chat with The Artistic Stamper owner, the lovely Jennie, she asked if I would do one last 'going-out' post for the team.

I have loved every minute being on the team and I will of course miss the fabulous ladies but I am sure I will continue to check in on the amazing creations they come up with.

So here is my last creation... 

First, I stamped some pumice stone oxide and spun sugar oxide distress inks on to my craft mat, sprayed with water and smooshed a 7" x 7" piece of 300gsm white card through. I did this a couple of times, drying in between to create a more intense layer of colour as the colours I had used were quite muted. 

I then used The Artistic Stamper 3 x 3 chevron stencil and the 3 x 3 harlequin stencil with the same oxide inks to add some pattern to the background. 

I then stamped two of the butterflies from The Artistic Stamper A5 insects and butterflies stamp set on to white card with smokey grey Versafine ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I then fussy cut the butterflies and inked them with spun sugar oxide ink. 

I stamped the Butterfly Words stamp on to white card, distressed the edges and inked the edges with spun sugar oxide ink. Then mounted it on to a bigger piece of card which I again distressed the edges and inked with pumice stone oxide ink.

To finish, I matted the background on to a piece of 7.5" x 7.5" white card which I had inked around the edges with the grey oxide ink. I placed the sentiment on to the card then added the butterflies, just in the centre to allow the wings to stick up. 

Thank you so much for popping by my blog today.
Toodles for now,
