Bee Crafty Inspiration

Hi everyone..

Im SO excited to finally announce that I have been asked to join the amazing DT for
Bee Crafty 

For my very first project I admit I went a bit mad.. I got my stamps delivered and within a few hours I was at my table playing. And I didnt just make 1 project, I made 4.. All using the same stamp..

The stamp I've used really intriqued me. Its a stamp, and style, so unlike me, and those who know me, will know I DO like a challenge.

The stamp I've used is called "Graffiti" and is from the Banksy series.
You can find it in the store HERE.

Here is what I have made:

 For this card I used and Embossing folder to make my back ground.
Then played with my distress inks before stamping in the middle.

 For this card I used my alcohol inks and a mist spray.
To make the bricks I used a Brick Background stamp before stamping my Graffiti stamp.

 This one is my favorite and it was so easy to make.
The back ground is made by simply cutting little pieces of red card stock and adding a bit of distress ink.  My "Graffiti" stamp was stamped with versa mark on to black card stock and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I did the same with the bunting.

 And last a quick play. I wanted to play with a mask (also called Inkables) but I didnt have one with a brick pattern so I used the one that came the closest.
I simply lay my mask over my card stock and used a paint brush to brush on distress ink.
To do this, simply take your paint brush and swipe it over the distress pad, then swipe it gently over the mask.

And that is all from me for today. I will be back next week with a Scrappage using another fantastic stamp.

Thank you for stopping by and for any comments left behind.
