Tangled Fragments - By Florence

Hi everyone

I hope you are enjoying the weekend.  

Today I would like to share two cards I have made using the new Tangled Fragments rubber stamp set.   I don't think I am going to put these away.  They are such good fun to use and so versatile.

Here are the cards.  I hope you like them.




I dabbed some Distress Inks onto a piece of plastic and spritzed it with water.  I then swished my card stock around in it, picking up the color.

I stamped my image using Archival Ink and colored just parts of the image in  in using a damp paint brush and Distress Inks.

I added some dots using a mask and Distress Ink and two wooden leaves.


The second card is really all about patterns.




I created the background on this card in the same way as the card above but this time I used coated card stock.

I stamped my pattern across the top part of the card using Blue Archival Ink and colored it using felt pens.

I then used a stencil to create the square boarder and then stamped the sentiment using one of the stamps from the Artistic Affirmations set and Archival Ink.  I added three little splashes using the little stamp from the Wisteria Lane stamp set.  I love that little stamp.  It is so useful.  I then added the bling.

I embossed a piece of blue card and then just mat and layered my card up as seen.

Thank you for looking.

Take care and happy stamping.

  5. Two wonderfully creative cards using just the fragments on one, and with just the edition of two wooden leaves on the other. The colours are lovely and the patterns are so interesting that they hold their own with very little else apart from some creative colouring. I like the pretty embossed layer on the second. x

  8. Fascinating to see these two samples - my favourite is the first with the way your wooden leaves colour is echoed by your greeny colouring of those little 'peacock eyes' plus the stencilled spots which accentuate the centres of those 'eyes.' The second is fascinating with all the colours of the fragments & the way your chequered border echoes the squarer portions of the fragment at the top. I love the classy matting of the royal blue on the white.
