This post for Crafty Individuals uses one of their new releases, a collage style stamp of a man and woman dancing.
Alongside this stamp I made use of some other Crafty Individuals stamps so here is the list of all Crafty Individuals products used:-
CI-350 Elements set (Lace)
CI-366 Elements set (Musical)
On this 8″x8″ card I wanted overall a very muted, almost diffused appearance so for the background I prepared it by building up layers of paint, stamping and scraps of Tissue Tape and carried on in this fashion until reasonably satisfied after five layers or so.After painting and stamping the tag I stamped the couple onto painted cardstock. With the silhouette aspect of the collage stamp it makes for quite a bold statement and as I wanted a sense of softness I painted over the stamped couple, blending two colours to enhance the softness. The paint also brought added texture and blended in with the painterly appearance.Another detail photograph shows the sheet music stamp tucked to the side. I have to thank my lovely friend Alison, who many of you will know (Craftytrog) as she kindly sent to me a bundle of die cuts and here I used one layered with stamped lace at the top of the card. Not only that, she gifted me with some beautiful pins, one of which I used tucked into some stained lace and layered to the left of the tag.I have a post scheduled for Sunday but in the meantime, have a lovely weekend and thank you for visiting this post.
