Text Impressions

Today’s MIM challenge at PTI was very interesting. I especially liked Heather’s brayer technique to ink up impressions. And Heather used a lot of text style stamps which gave me a great idea for my CAS-ual Fridays entry!

Here is my card for both, MIM and CAS-ual Fridays challenge:

Cardstock: Bazzil Basics, Recycled handmade paper for panel
Stamp: PTI Text Style, Gina K Autumn Splendor for sentiment
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black,, PTI Fresh Snow
Accessories: White rose and leaves, Martha Stewart doiley cutout

The left panel is made by first impressing a recycled handmade paper with a Tim Holtz impression plate. Then I inked up the raised side with Memento Black ink. I directly pressed the inkpad over the paper since I didn’t have any brayer.

The text background is from PTI Text Style stamps. I added a white rose and some leaves from my stash to the card. A Martha Stewart doiley cutout with a Thankyou stamp from Ginak K Autumn Splendor set completes the card.

I am submitting this card to:

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you enjoyed the card!
