Paula DT - Life isn't about waiting....

Shopping List

BEAUtanicals: Wildflower 2
Inkables Template ~ Metal Work Alpha
Snowflake Flurry
WORDage ~ Life & Rain (Lg)
Distress Ink Pads: Mermaid Lagoon and Twisted Citron
Versafine Onyx Black Ink Pad

These are very easy, quick and simple cards to make. There are 3 because that's how many I got out of a 12x12 sheet of white card.

Basically, you ink the Wildflower stamp with Mermaid Lagoon Distress ink and then stamp, this is called a first generation print, stamp again without re inking and this is your 2nd generation and then do it again to get your 3rd generation print.
Take the Metal Work Alpha template and randomly ink through small sections using the Twisted Citron Distress ink.
There is a small section of dots on the Snowflake Flurry stamp, I've cut them away from the main stamp but you can mask off the rest of the stamp, ink up the dots, remove the mask and stamp it that way. Finally, ink the quote in black and stamp.

The last card is basically the same as the others but this time I masked a border using some low tack tape. I was a bit lazy and just used the width of the tape as my border, which to be honest was a little wide for the size of card. Anyhow, I wiped some Twisted Citron around the edges and then carried on as I did above. Oh...don't forget to remove the tape to reveal the stamped centre!

Love these colours together and these really do evoke the bluriness of a rainy day - they're all lovely! The large text stamp looks great with the different fonts.
