Play time with Stella

On Saturday my friend Stella came around and we had a lovely play and this is the card  we each made so I thought I would share it with you.  It was inspired by a picture in craft stamper magazine issue 58 and featuring the free stamp that came with January 2012 free stamp from redhead designs.

I thought that this wood be good for Stella to practice her techniques so we started with a brayer and coloured a white piece of card with cloudy blue. (technique 1) then we used some masks and inked through with stonewash (technique 2) we stamped the Clarity new design stamp  across the top and further down and then we randomly stamped a script stamp from Indigoblu and parts of a stamp that came on a set with the handbag and glove from the creative stamper magazine.  We used archival black for the stamping. (3) Then out came the GC and spellbinder resplendent rectangles and cut some shapes (4)
we took the smallest rectangle and left it in the die and inked around the edge with a blending tool (5)
Inkylicious brushes were used to distress in denim around the other two rectangles (6)
we then stamped the Clarity HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU stamp and added the gloves and handbags.
we stamped the lady and coloured with promarkers (7)
stuck it all together matted and layered on navy blue and then onto white base card.

We had a great time with lots of cups of coffee and laughs - the room was a right tip and in the midst of it all my niece came to collect a card that she asked me to make for Mother's day ... lol.

Thanks for stopping by off to do some more crafting now.
