Hey everyone! Happy Wednesday!
I’ve got a bit of a unique ‘Missing You’ card today:
What do you think? Really pleased with how this turned out – though it’s so sad!
I started with a Stamper’s Select White card base and stamped the outline sun from the You Are My Sunshine set from Green Grass Stamps. The face is a happy face usually so I inked up the eyes only and stamped them upside down, then cleaned my stamp and repeated with the mouth. I used SU! Smoky Slate ink for the outlines then then stamped the solid image using Pressed Griege Linen ink. I stamped the clouds in the same way.
I built the sentiment using the Midnight Letters set, stamping them with Smoky Slate ink. I chose to use the solid stamps only for the ‘You’re’ word to really emphasise it. There are no apostrophes in the set so I created those by partially stamping the ‘I’ and then doing some creative stamping to make the pointed ends.
Finally I masked my base using washi tape and used an ink blending tool with a mix of Soft Stone ink and Pressed Greige Linen inks to shade in the greyness overcast by the sun. I then removed the tape and shaded some more to take the whiteness out of the base. As a monotone card I really like all the shades in there and think it really helps to convey the mood of the sentiment too.
Well I’d best be heading to bed, I’m so super-tired. I would love it if you left some love before you went on your way! Thanks so much for stopping by!
