Had a day off from Sewing today, after a three day sewing spree, I have had an "Inky Play".
At Port Sunlight on Saturday last weekend the lovely lady Jean on Crafty Individuals was demoing stamping one of their new stamps, and I just couldn't resist buying it and having a go today to see if I could replicate what she showed me.....I am really pleased at how easy it was and such fun too.
My m-i-law, loves her "Notelets", so she will be getting a set of these any day soon.
Hope you like them....The original card had a spot of decoupage on it, but I don't do this if they are for a notelet as it makes them too thick. But they did look lovely with the flower and butterfly in 3d.
When I make some more I will try the decoupage and see how they look.
I started with a sheet of Crafty Individuals glossy cardstock.
Using several of Tim Holt's distress inks I used some lovely brushes to apply a light layer of ink. Some of the images have just two inks one on each half, others have several colours on.
I then used a Memory Box stencil in chicken wire and used ink through to add depth.
I stamped the Crafty Individual flower stamp using Versafine jet black ink.
I am going to join in on Crafty Individuals blog challenge below:

Have a lovely day in this nice warm spell we are having.
