Letters and flowers from Penny Black

This is a project for Minnehjørnet as a designer. I used the stamps "Letters and Flowers" from Penny Black. The tecnique I used was brushstroke: I colored the stamps with Le Plume markers, sprayed on some water from a watermister and stamped on white cardstock. I then distressed the image with Tea Dye distress ink from Ranger.
I used my sewingmachine around the edges and left it very simple. As a designer you have to be able to both make simple, easy cards and more advanced ones. We have to try to inspirate every customer, both beginners and cardmakers that has several years behind them with cardstock and stamps. This card is very easy and fast and fun to do.

Dette prosjektet er for Minnehjørnet som designer. Stemplet heter "letters and flowers" og er fra Penny Black. Teknikken som er brukt heter "brushstroke" på "godt" norsk. Jeg fargelegger stemplet med tusjer fra Le plume, sprøyter deretter vann fra en sprayflaske på stemplet og stempler på hvit kartong. Jeg har deretter svertet kanter og hele trykket med Tea Dye Distress ink fra Ranger. Jeg sydde en søm langs kanten.

Som designer må man kunne klare å inspirere kunder, alle typer av dem. Både de som er helt nybegynnere og de som har holdt på i noen år. Dette kortet er både lett og kjapt å lage.

  3. Oh Tonje, you crack me up. You have me in stitches, nearly rolling on the floor laughing. Gosh, I thought I really looked my age and then some. lol..Maybe I am slowly embalming myself from the inside, from inhaling to much ink and embossing fumes. lol.. You are so funny, I love it. Thank you.. for your super kind compliments. huge hugs xo Jackie
