I thought I would share this card which features Character Constructions stamps.
Character Constructions Stamps:-
The TimeKeeper’s Garden No. 5 (butterflies), No. 8 (woman’s head, decorative collar and bouquet of flowers), No. 10 (dress)
Inner Child No. 1 (hat)
If you have ever seen or used Character Constructions stamps then you will know it is an apt name because you literally construct characters with the stamps. Catherine Moore’s stamps are made to be mixed and matched, whether within each collection or dipping into sets outwith. There are no limits, no rules, just the pure joy of having fun!I went about this card quite differently to my normal approach. Most times, I will paint/stain watercolour paper (I say paper but it is 300gsm) then I will stamp onto the surface. This time around, I stamped onto the watercolour paper first, adding colour with Graphitint pencils. I might have a collection of various paints, watercolours, Brushos, you name it but when it comes to markers and coloured pencils, they are not something I am attracted to but the Graphitint pencils are so lovely, beautiful hint of colour and so easy to work with. The stamps are listed above but I will quickly run through the individual elements. There was a lot of fussy cutting involved and silicone glue for dimension.
The face and collar(which belong to a larger stamp) were topped with a pretty hat. If you visit the website, you will see that this dress actually has butterfly wings but I decided to snip them off! I like the wings but this card was for my dear Mum and I knew she wouldn’t be as keen on them! The arms are from the same stamp.
She clutches a bouquet of flowers, has she freshly picked them herself or did her beau surprise her with a visit this lovely Spring morning.She giggles as a butterfly rests on her wrist, mimicking a corsage.
(If you have any queries about stockists or purchasing from her website, I am sure Catherine Moore will answer them. She is also at Facebook along with Character Constructions)
I have quite a few blog posts I need to start to organise. Isn’t time passing by so quickly, or is it only me thinking this?!!
I will return with my regular That’s Crafty post on Sunday, unless I get organised and squeeze in a little something between now and then!
