Here is a card I made earlier this year for my niece which was sent all the way to Finland : ) I thought I would ink up some Magnolia stamps after a long 'dry' stamping spell and creat a little scene. As it was my first attempt at using them to create a background scene I thought I would take photos to help any other stampers out there which are starting out stamping.
You will need:
- Black ink, if using alcohol markers or using prismas & sansador I would recommend using Memento Tuxedo Black
- White Card, minimum of 220gsm if your using alcohol markers otherwise the colour may bleed through the card
- Post it notes
- Magnolia Background stamps or alternatively images (which you will need to cut out closely and layer as an alternative to masking): Magnolia Swing, Magnolia Butterfly Background, Magnolia Berry Tilda, Magnolia Rufus
- Spellbinders Nestabilities (I've used Labels) which you can use as an aid to create a 'frame' to assess whether the scene is 'coming together'.
Firstly, stamp the Magnolia Swing on to white card, stamp again onto a post it note and cut around either the whole image or just around the rope/swing platform
