Buzzing By

I received my new Alota Rubber Stamps from the USA and just had to use some of them straight away. This stamp I just had to buy as I thought it was so cute and could be used for many occasions - it is quite a large stamp too, approx 3 3/4" x 4 1/2".

I stamped the image onto some white card using black archival ink and coloured the design using prismacolour pencils blending with sansador. I used a blue distress ink and lightly swirled some ink around the image to create a sky look. The dp I used on this card is from Sweet Shoppe Designs and the sentiment I printed from my pc and again coloured with blue distress ink. To finish the card off I added a paper flower from a K & Co "make a flower" pad and a light blue ribbon from my stash.

This is another card using my new stamps from Alota Stamps. I just thought this was a very fun stamp set. The main image is another large stamp and measures approx 3 1/4" x 4 1/2"

I stamped the main image using black archival ink onto white card and coloured using Prismacolour pencils, blended with sansador. I edged around the image using a light green distress ink. The sentiment I stamped in the same way onto white card and coloured using distress ink. The papers are from my stash and I simply added a paper flower from K & Co "make a flower" pad - the flower looks much nicer and more 3d in the "flesh"
