Well would you believe it?
I've actually had chance to make something for this month's card prompts.
I had fun trying to be creative with the main prompt:
I wanted to give it a wintry spin so I could use it as a Christmas card (every little helps!). I had a good session going through my ink pad collection to find some colours that would replicate the colours in the illustration. I have a loooot of ink, and every stamper needs a lot of ink for occasions just like this!
Here's the finished result:
Stamps: Concord and 9th (Flourish), PTI (Peaceful Pinecones)
Die: Lil' Inker Designs (Silly Stitched die set)
It's definitely a lovely stamp set and so many possibilities for different colour combos and looks. First up though I conditioned all the stamps with Versamark ink and stamped it off before applying the dye inks. It really makes conditioning stamps so much faster and the results are a lot better for it, even when using the MISTI to stamp some impressions a couple of times to make the results really bold and solid. :) I also used a light grey cardstock for this card and the contrast is even nicer than the starkness of white cardstock.
Finally I found a nice greeting that worked with the images - right size and font, yay!
I'll share my other card for November tomorrow. :)
