Today's ICAD

About a month ago on the UK Stampers Network Craft and Chat Zoom, Dolly showed us velveteen stamping. I didn't have the chance to do it then (the time difference only means I can join in late!) but I thought I would have a go today.

First I stamped white card with Archival Brilliance in Moonlight White using Lost coast Designs Fern Background.

I then overstamped in black Archival with the Lost Coast Designs Coffee Gnome stamp

I then added colour using that new toy - the marker airbrush.

My intention then was to use my images on index cards but when I saw the challenge on

Lost Coast Portal to Creativity #124

was to use inchies and twinches I decided to cut my pieces into inch and two inch squares, using vintage photo distress around each edge.

Some of my squares ended up a bit uneven!

I added a  Tim Holtz chipboard to this one - I hope you can see the technique...

To this one I added some written words.

Happy Crafting!!
