Half term is here, looking forward to some crafting time.
I still enjoy using Kraft cardstock, but colouring stamped images on Kraft can lead to a muddy looking outcome. A while back, I saw a video on YouTube which showed how to use pigment inks and a MISTI to solve this problem. So, I broke out lots of my old stamps and some pigment ink refills Anna Griffin) to make a range of cards.
I started on Kraft using Tim Holtz blueprint stamps. I liked the telephones from the vintage set as I thought they could have a range of uses, so began with these stamps.
Then I made a few baby cards using this teddy stamp.
Next, I found a periodic table stamp. Being an ex chemistry teacher I bought it at a craft show ages ago. Sorting my stash back in December reminded me I had it!
As the chemistry stamp had tiny detail, it was difficult to stamp onto Kraft as it tended to bleed. Because of this, I decided to try stamping in this way onto Neenah card, lovely for clean images where the ink stays put. They make lovely card fronts with a whole range of sentiments.
A good afternoon's crafting to fill up my card box.
