Couple more trees...

Happy Sunday,

I promise I will move on from the winters trees set of stamps tomorrow but I thought I would share a couple of cards made using the same set and a mix of the techniques I have shared over the last few days!

This first card is made using the simple techniques for the media plates .  I then ran over the card using the brayer with ink on from the plate.  Finally I added the Argyle mask ( that has the bubbles on) and shaded through this using the same colour ink.

The next card us even easier I simply stamped the tress over a piece of card I had ran the brayer over using the ocean and rose izink inks.  I hand drew the bases for the tress and random lines to suggest a landscape, simple!


Enjoy...

  32. Easy card techniques: just add ink pads, a brayer, a mask and a stamping platform. I can live with that.

    to make lol.
    I love the tree stamp and those gorgous colours.
