Loves Rubberstamps - Designer Day

Well I'm back with another inspirational post for Loves Rubberstamps. This week I decided to keep on with a travelling theme. This week I'm headed to London which I did get to visit last April for 3 days. Not enough time was spent  in London but we did see some of the major attractions such as; Winston Churchill's War Museum, Buckingham Palace, rode the Eye of London, rode the tube and ate at Hard Rock Cafe. So I started off using black metallic paper for my base which is a 5"x 7" finished card size. I used Basic Grey 'Serenade' for the rest. I added 3 layers before adding a 4th layer which I made myself. I used a simple batik technique by using the JustRite 'London' background stamp using Top Boss a watermark ink,  stamped on a piece of shimmery white paper. I embossed using clear embossing powder and then heat set. I then took the following ink pads; Teal, Yellow Cadmium and Chestnut Roan and randomly sponged in the  various colors making sure the colors were blended. I then took a hot iron to melt the embossing powder off and was left with the result shown. I stamped the telephone booth from the stamp set called 'London Greetings' by Justrite using black memento ink and colored the image by using Prismacolor Pencils. I added some blue/green satin ribbon along with a bow by May Arts and added a London 3D Sticker that I found at Michael's. You can find Justrite stamps and Black Memento ink here in Laura's Store;

  1. Jackie, this batik technique is one of my favorites. I'm recycling my craft room and found a folder with several pieces which have been done, but not assembled. I hope to finish them up soon! Your card is gorgeous! Maybe mine will look as pretty as yours - you always have such a unique way with the colors and embellishments. hugs, de

  2. Love the background Jackie. Great technique for that stamp.

  3. Beautiful card! I love the colors and technique! I was in London for 6 days -- Loved every minute of it!

  4. What a fun vacation card! London IS fabulous - you do need to go back and spend more time though. So much to see.

  5. This is beautiful Jackie! I am going to have to try this technique!

  6. Wow! This is stunning! The colors you chose are so pretty together. This technique is perfect for this image and project! I will have to try it out AND get this stamp into the store! You made me NEED it - LOL! Awesome job!
