making a mark (by Veronica)

Good morning everyone, hopefully you are all enjoying the Jubilee weekend - I thought I ought to go with the flow and show you this  red, white and blue card!

I made a black DL card using my trimmer, which helpfully has a scoring blade, and cut a piece of white card to fit. I stamped the dotty streak stamp from making more marks twice in red and again in blue along the length of the white card - I did try to join it up properly, but the sentiment hides any gaps! I added the ink and paint words in the red and blue ink. The sentiment was stamped in black on a spare piece of card , with the exclamation mark added, trimmed down, mounted on a narrow black mat and glued in place.

For the second card I cut a square of white card about 7.5" square and fastened it onto a stmaping platform with the magnets. The tyre tread stamp was stamped four times in black versafine ink, turning the card each time after stamping one image. Reposition the stamp midway between two of the images and repeat the process four times. It looked a bit bare, so i added the narrow strip stamp, again placing it midway between two of the first images, and stamping four times. Reposition it in the blank spaces and repeat stamp another four times.

i added the word edgy roughly in the centre, then trimmed the card down into a hexagon shape, and inked the edges in black before adding to an 8" white card blank.

I used the loopy stamp to decorate a fabric shopper for something different. I used the versafine black ink again, and stamped the image eight times to form a rough circle this time usign an acrylic block ( only because the bag wouldn't fit into the stamping platform!).

I coloured the loops using promarkers to give something roughly approaching a flower .

If you want to decorate a similar bag, you would be better off using fabric inks - I did wash a previous bag that had been decorated using versafine and promarkers, and the colours didn't wash out , but obviously I could have just been very lucky that time!

  1. I love the fun red, white and blue on to a black DL card base on the first is very effective Veronica, and the black on white tyre tread pattern you made is just brilliant and works so well with the thin strip stamp in between, and finally cut into the hexagon shape makes it even more interesting. Last the cleverly made flower pattern on the fabric bag..such a great idea, such super colouring and cleverly done. x


Thanks so much for leaving a comment - it brings a little ray of sunshine into our day when we know our work is appreciated!
