The base card is white pearl cut to 15cm square, scored & folded then sprayed with black webbing.I wanted to do a monochrome piece, and went for the trickier option of white stamping on black!
I tried a few images using different inks & embossing powders, and these are the results.
The greyish looking face section in the top left is White Staz-on & White pearl embossing powder. The music score, script and the tickets are all White Staz-on, no embossing, apart from the bottom left one which has a little embossing powder on it. The other three face sections are Moonlight White Brilliance ink, and White Detail embossing powder, which was much more successful.
However, the combo I finally went with was good old
Versamark and White Detail powder.
I got a much more solid white print with this. These are leftover pieces from the various images I stamped, and as you can see from these and the card, I cut them a bit randomly to give some movement to the compilation.
These are some of the stamps I used for
the images.I can see some Paper Artsy,
and some from Stamp Francisco.
I punched out some images,and cut out others to the width of one of my Clear rulers (which happens to be 3 1/2 cm, or 1 3/8in. ),which is the same as one of my Woodware punches, so it was easier to vary the orientation.You can see the punch in the bottom left of this picture.
The rest of my desk looks like this:
There are some black on white images cut to the same size, so I can do an opposite version, and the flower panel is a stamp called Mixed 3 Square, F1276, from Impression Obsession.
I came across these while looking for stamped images I could cut down. I stamped them ages ago, and never got round to using them.
Lady Julias domain to view this weeks offerings, and a Happy WOYWW to everyone.
