Hey everyone, Tabbatha here with some dapper inspiration for you gentle souls. This card is a mixture of two digital stamps, Angry Persian and Hat & Gloves, and a clear stamp sentiment, Hippster Kody. I tend to use my clear stamps as sentiments, that way I can play with placement as well as extend the clear stamp sets I have.
In order to make this card I combined Angry Persian digital stamp and Hats and Gloves digital stamp as well. If you recall from this Movie Monday, it is super simple to combine the two digi stamps in Adobe Photoshop. I just went a step further and did some paper piecing on the hat as well.
That wonderful sentiment from Hipster Kody is just too perfect for a cat, especially an Angry Persian. 😉 I stamped the ironic in MFT hybrid ink, while I used Distress Ink Faded Jeans for the triangles.
Quick tip: water-based ink (such as Distress Inks) don’t stamp as well on clear stamps as they do rubber there are two things you can do to help avoid that and if that doesn’t work I have a tip for filling in the missing bits.
- Prep your clear stamp with a white eraser.
- Breathe on the stamp after inking. This acts as if you are adding water, only it is a tiny, tiny bit from your breath. (I never have checked to see if you can “contaminate” a stamped image with garlic or onion breath. This might need to be researched.)
So you still have missing sections on the stamped image? Even the best of us can’t avoid that sometimes, especially on textured cardstock. So here are a couple things you can do to fix it!
- Use a stamping tool such as a MISTI or a homemade version like I have. 😉 This allows you to re-stamp in the exact same position! On my card above I had to do that with the “ironic” stamp.
- Fill in the ink by hand. You can do this by using a colored pen, or the original ink itself.
- Use a Wink of Stella pen to add more water-based ink and get a cool, glittery affect as well. You’ll see that on the triangles. 😀
