A new stamp from Quietfire Design


Quietfire Design has two new calligraphy images... you can see them both here and they are both on sale until June 9th... info here. I'm using one on this little card that measures 4 1/4" square. All of QF's calligraphy rubber stamps are made from Suzanne's beautiful hand-penned calligraphy. The quote is stamped with Versafine ink and embossed with clear detail embossing powder onto a piece of background done with alcohol inks. My daughter and her friend were over a couple of months ago and we spent some time just playing with alcohol inks. I can't tell you exactly which colors I used on here but I can tell you that I made a lot of the speckles by putting alcohol ink on an old toothbrush and running my thumb over it. The big light areas were made by shaking on some blending solution, letting it sit a few seconds, and then blotting up the excess. After stamping the quote on it I cut it out with Spellbinders Labels Two die next to the largest size. It is mounted on a layer of black glossy cardstock cut with the largest size die. The next layer is a piece of white core cardstock embossed with a new Tim Holtz texture fade embossing folder - regal flourishes - and then I sanded over it with the Tim Holtz sanding tool. The base is again black glossy cardstock. The white dots are made using Ranger's new accent enamel... very cool stuff.
