Goodly Morning... tis time for me to show you what I have been up to over the past few days... I am still conjouring up another installment of the Configuration box, so in the meantime, I have an ATC to show you that I made using those gorgeous Studio 490 stamps from Wendy Vecchi. I don't think there is a single stamp in the Studio 490 range that I don't like... and with more sets coming soon, I am sure that I will be expanding my collection soon! Oooh, and while I think about the new sets... did you know that you can pre-order them already? Just CLICK HERE and you will be magically transported on the wings of a Grungepaper butterfly to the Stamp Attic website :O))
I made this ATC using Distress Inks to colour the base card and then overstamping with the same colour - I used Tumbled Glass for the inking and stamping as I wanted a subtle but pretty colour behind the rest of the things in the design. I edged the ATC with Vintage Photo DI and dragged Walnut Stain around the very tips of the edges just to close the design in.
I stamped several flower shapes onto Grungepaper and Grungeboard, overstamping with background stamps to jazz the flowers up and then colouring with Rusty Hinge, Aged Mahogany and Tumbled Glass DI's. I stamped a butterfly, coloured him with Scattered Straw and Ageh Mahogany wing tips and then popped an Idea-ology lock over the top and filled the keyhole with Glossy Accents. Finally, I dabbed a few dots of Black Enamel Accents onto the scallop border and the dots on the sentiment... All of the goodies used are readily available at The Stamp Attic... thanks for looking...
