Whoop! Whoop! It's Friday!!
Hope your day is going well
and you've time to take a moment
to sit back and relax with a nice
cool drink and see what
Helen Chilton has brought us
"I love using the Cover a Card stamps.
In these two projects I'm going to show how
to build up different stamps in layers.
Working on glossy card, cut a mask for
the moon and stamp the Metal background
in Broken China and Picked Raspberry
Turn card around, reink and stamp again.
While the ink's still wet, rub round the edges
Remove mask and lightly colour moon with
Squeezed Lemonade, then stamp the
Birds on Trees in black.
Then stamp and emboss a corner of the Spiders Web
in Stampendous Ice Blue embossing enamel
Decorate with a few sequins and layer
onto coloured card.
Now for the second card:
Working on glossy card again, stamp part of
Geologic in Broken China and Shabby Shutters.
Stamp part of the Stones stamp in
Hickory Smoke and black
Stamp part of the Tree Line stamp in black.
Next stamp over the tree with
Distress Oxide Walnut Stain.
When that's dry, rub on some
Distress Oxide Peeled Paint.
Rub in a bit of Distress inkpads Pumice Stone
and Hickory Smoke to the stone wall
Then finish off as you wish.
These stamps are really very versatile
and mix well together."

sounds as though I'm being
