The last card I made this morning was inspired on the ghost stamping technique Jennifer Mcquire used on her blog. I don’t have that much colours so I came up with this idea, where I used a white pigment ink and a soft tone ink from Hero Arts.
I wanted to make a birthday card for my mum, but since my dad past away last year I didn’t wanted to use words as ‘happy birthday’ or something like that. So instead I took my die from Simon Says Stamp and ended with this message:
The second idea I wanted to try (also seen on the blog of Kristina Werner), was drawing a line in the colour of the stamped text and (in my case) frog to bring them more ‘together’…
Due to the flu (and other things that kept me busy) my head wasn’t thinking of making cards for a while….
This morning however, I visited the websites of Kristina Werner and Jennifer Mcquire again and immediately became inspired…!!!
I came up with this birthday card for Jesse after I saw the card with all the candles that Kristina made. I used vellum to stamp two rows of birthday presents and put it on white and craft cardstock to keep it a bit masculine.
