DCM Little Extra and Other Stuff!!!
Posted by manicstamper on July 25, 2007
The DCM Little Extra dare today is to use numbers on our cards.
I needed to make some new job cards so I have used some DCWV number paper from the Black and White stack which I coloured with chalk.
The stamps are from the TandaStamps Vintage Ads and Retro Women ranges.
The sentiment was printed from my computer.
This is one of the cards I have made with the paper I found during my sort out which I thought would go with the TandaStamps medieval stamp sets.
The main image has been stamped in black and coloured with pencils……not my strongest point I must admit…..lol!!!
I have then…..dare I say it……used the Bondaweb with H20 wash technique.
The leather straps are made from a small piece of leatherette paper I had knocking about and I have embellished them with faux stitching.
The stamps are once again TandaStamps.
The alphabet at the side is supposed to be chopped up and used as individual letters but I thought I would try it out as a background stamp first…….and I like it so it will be staying like that for the moment.
I have overstamped that with a knight effigy image using Coffee Bean Brilliance.
The medallion is stamped and embossed in black and then rubbed over with the coffee bean ink.
I did want to add fibres to this but didn’t have anything suitable so it’s just a plain and simple card to send to a ‘knight in shining armour’ as a thank you card perhaps.
As usual I have made much more mess than neccessary…..lol. I am going to have to tidy up before I can do anything else as I am working in a six inch square of space now and keep knocking stuff off the desk.
DD is sorting tea out so I will go and put my feet up for a few minutes, come back and tidy up and then start all over again.
Catch you later
