Time Stamps - Creative Expressions



I decided quite late on last night to mount my new set of stamps picked up at Lincoln show. But once I'd mounted them I really did need to then try them out.



I watched a Creative Expressions show on C&C earlier in the day where the designer completely filled an A4 sheet of card randomly with 3 colours of distress inks.



The card was then covered with perfect pearls, the stamp was inked with perfect medium (resist ink) and the image was randomly stamped over the card.



Another colour of perfect pearls was then brushed over the entire piece of card. I then cut my card up into a postcard, a tag and 2 4 x 4's adding extra stamping as required.



This one I did in exactly the same way but used different background colours and a different background image.
