Featured Stamper: Christy Lynn

Featured Stamper: Christy Lynn

Even though this is supposed to be a CASE of Featured Stamper Christy S.‘s Modified Tapestry card, it was also very much inspired by Lisa Somerville’s work (particulary with this stamp set). I just got the Friends 24-7 stamp set and Kind Thoughts Brocade stencil and wanted to play with them today.

I kept the monochromatic blue theme and layout of Christy’s card, but used a different technique for the bottom part. The “Wet Stencil” technique was featured in the April 2009 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter, and I used my Not Quite Navy crayon with the stencil. I also added three Not Quite Navy brads, and colored the white ribbon with (diluted) Not Quite Navy ink before laying it on top of a strip of Not Quite Navy card stock. Not bad for a long-neglected color!

Thanks for stopping by!

    Gorgeous Card with one of my favorite sets! I don’t have this stencil but I’m thinking I could use the negative of the Tulipe Big shot Die as a similar stencil and come up with my own version.

    Thanks for sharing the creativity and inspiration Vera.

    Hugs and Blessings – Jean
