Versamark & dusted with chalks

We're featuring the subject of travel this week & I've come up with another "blokey" card using 2 of the new stamps from Aspects of Design. I've stamped with black onto a piece of background which I created a while ago when playing with the Creative Palette from Stampendous- I knew all those pieces would come in handy one day! The border at the left hand side is a torn piece from  the Textura pad stamped with the Shipped Script. The card blank itself has been run through a script embossing folder to give it some texture. The very apt message has also been printed onto the cardstock. To finish I've added some seam binding which I've coloured with a grey inkpad & the pewter brads. .  

Here's  a closer look.

Today at Liberty Craft- Inkylicious

 I've had a great time today in my usual Thursday morning demo at Liberty Craft using the lovely stamps from Inkylicious which are new to Sarah. I colour washed some water colour paper with distress inks to make the backgrounds. This works well with the largely silhouette designs.  the sentiments come from Woodware's "Tiddlers". Here's the array of designs which I created.

"Picture Perfect"

"Daisy Fields" 

"Wings & Things" &

Boys & Their Toys

Materials used:-
FRS258 Sailing By
Sakura Stardust pens
Brilliance Graphite Black
Versafine Smoky Grey
Red Gingham ribbon

Our theme this week is "Boys & Their Toys" & toys to Mr Frosty were always ones which went with water so I thought I'd go for a nautical look.
I've chosen "Sailing By" from Francoise Read which is a large stamp & comes as you see it here so it's great for cutting up into separate sections if you wish. I've stamped twice, once with black & then with grey. I've used the Sakura Stardust pens to watercolour the black printed image & then I've cut it up & placed it over the grey image. Simples! I've layered onto red & navy card & added some gingham ribbon to trim. To finish I've added some faux stitching & some buttons.

This Week at Liberty Craft- Double Display Cards

Yesterday at Liberty Craft I was demonstrating the art of the "double display" design.Those of you who visit my blog from time to time will remember that I featured this idea last week in the "Inspired by Pinterest" theme. This also is what I shall be covering in the next workshop on 6th June along with a diamond fold card so if you would like to be shown "how to" book your place.
 I used the Stampendous stamp set "Build a Bouquet" but with very different colours this time. I didn't actually get to finish as I had a lunch date with an old friend yesterday so I had to do some homework but here is the finished design which will be on display at Liberty Craft soon.

Please join me next week when I shall be using the new Inkylicious  stamps recently new to Liberty Craft & they are gorgeous!!
