Crows and Cathedral

Hello again! I bring you today a card featuring the Holy City stamps from Smeared Ink. I have said it before, but I’ll say it again… I love this set! It is so unique and beautiful! But let’s just get to the card!

Crows-and-Cathedral-1

I used 2 images here, the crow (repeated several times) and the stunning cathedral. I stamped the cathedral first on a grey patterned paper. Tore around it and inked it in blue. I had this pre-distressed blue cardstock from Basic Grey, which I thought worked perfectly with the look I was going for. Tore the bottom of that. I added both elements to a textured grey cardstock from Prism, and I inked that with black (I love the texture on it!). Last, I stamped all of the crows on, turning them slightly so that they didn’t look exactly the same.

Crows-and-Cathedral-2

I didn’t want a whole lot of fluff, so I kept it very simple. I think that all of the textures and faint patterns added enough to the card without making it fussy. It’s just tranquil and lovely. And, just a little eerie!

Thanks for visiting! Have an inspiring day!!!

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some
