Hi Everyone! I hope you are having a good day. I want to show you a Thanksgiving card I made using the collage technique.This is a bit different than just random stamping in that you need to plan a bit about what stamps you will use and what you want to emphasize on your card. To some this can seem intimidating but it really is fun.
Supplies you will need:
several stamps ( they do not need to relate )
several colors of ink ( I used Distress inks )
light card stock
Here are the inks and stamps I used.
I started off using my script stamp. I stamped some of the stamp off the page to give the idea of the pattern going on. I did this with a lot of my stamps.
Now just keep building upon your stamps. Next I used the pumpkins across the bottom.
When stamping the leaves, I stamped directly and then stamped off once and stamped on the card stock to make some of the leaves lighter to look like they were in the background.
At this point I thought I was through, but it seemed like there was too much white space, so I stamped 2 more leaves lightly to fill in the space and added the owl. I think that helped it look better. You can keep going until you have the look you want.
I hope you will have fun playing. It may take some experimenting to get what you like, but I think you will have fun with this and it gives a neat look to your cards.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful and blessed day!
