elements of style



My favourite stamp set in the Summer Mini has to be Elements Of Style.
It is soooo beautiful and vintage....
For mother's day I created this easel card - so easy and such a great way to display your artwork....my mom keeps all the cards that I have made for her in an album - isn't she great?
To get the look, first stamp with Chocolate Chip Craft ink, and emboss with clear embossing powder. Wow, does the image ever pop!
Then take your re-inkers and place a drop of each colour you will be painting with onto a plastic paint pallet. With your Aquapainter or fine paint brush dip into the desired ink colour and paint away.
If using a paint brush, you will need to dip it into a bit of water first, then into the ink.
I have also sponged a bit of Creamy Caramel Classic ink to enhance the shabby vintage look.
Have fun playing with this set, you can't go wrong with it.
Thanks for stopping by!
