Don’t faint, I stamped a card!

Boy, it feels like it had been a long time since I just sat down and stamped for fun. Sure, I did a lot of stamping on Christmas presents and craft fair items but those were fairly planned out. This card was just playing with ink, stamps and watercolor paper:

I dusted off the old Stampmaker and made the TARDIS and police box sign stamps and then used a blueprint stamp from Technique Tuesday and the gears and winged clock from Inkadinkado.  To make the card I inked up my TARDIS with 4 Distress Inks: Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Faded Jeans and Dusty Concord (working light to dark in this order) then I stamped it on watercolor paper. I spritzed it with water to give it a softer look. I smooshed the Dusty Concord pad on my silicone sheet to act as a palette and I painted a shadow. Then I took a damp brush and dragged some of the ink around for shading on the TARDIS. I chose Distress ink because it can be reworked with water, typically it is not my favorite ink to stamp with. Tip: If you are stamping on rough paper lay the stamp on your table rubber side up and press the paper to the stamp!

Then I just added some of the other stamped imagery with Stampin Up ink because I wanted a sharper look. I mounted the panel on black and hot glued the “police box” stamp in the wrong spot (!) but, it is hot glue so there it will remain ha ha! To balance it out I added some clock hand die cuts and attached them with screw top brads.  all in all, a really fun card to make! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
