One stamp - 2 colours

Tim Holtz Flourish stamp and Distress  Oxides and Inks - Nikki Acton
Hello!
I am very pleased to be joining the Craft Stamper Take it Make it challenge Design Team for 2018! Our January challenge launches today and as usual it is Anything Goes with Stamping.

I decided to have a play with Distress Oxides / Inks and one of Tim Holtz's large background stamps. I am planning on using more colour in 2018 so I went quite bright - just using Wilted Violet and Twisted Citron.
I made a few panels to start off - varying how I inked the background and whether I inked or stamped first - just to get some subtle variations. Lots left over after the 2 cards I have made so far!

For one I added an Alison Bomber quote:

And the other a birthday sentiment - as I need a card early January!

Thanks for stopping by - see you soon

  6. Ooh, those distressed panels are beautifully done - lovely work - and the bold contrasting colours are so zingy. Just what's needed to brighten up a grey January day (though today's been better than some!). And one of my favourite poets into the bargain. Fabulous!
