Hello Everyone 🙂
Today I’m sharing a clean and simple card I made using the stamp set I designed for Mudra 🙂
I’m sure many of you have nostalgic memories of THE HERO PEN. It was a time when the simple hero pen was a luxury. I had to get continuous ‘O’ grades, to get my Dad to buy me my first hero pen 🙂 It was a nice deep burgundy color. And that is the inspiration behind the card.
You don’t always need multiple-step stamps to achieve the shaded look. I inked up my solid image in memento rhubarb ink, and wiped off a part of the ink, I did this a couple of times to get a nice shaded look on my pen. The solid and the outline images are easy to line up. The trick behind aligning the stamp is to make sure that the nib is aligned, and you see no open/white area where the lines fall. I repeated the same steps for the cap. The colour I used is memento desert sand. The sentiment was stamped using memento tuxedo black. The little brown box was a freebie from Itsy Bitsy.
For the left hand side of my panel, I used many of the stamp sets that I own. I stamped them all in Memento Desert Sand.
