Ink and Rubber Challenge 1

Hi everyone and this card is for the new Ink and Rubber challenge blog for all things Stampin' Up! I only have a couple of very old SU sets at the moment and I've used the three flower stamp from the big flowers set. I stamped with a brilliance three colour twilight inkpad which is pretty and shimmery but doesn't seem to want to dry, I edged the white card with it, it went everywhere! I'll heat set it a bit next time to see if that helps. A simple card really, I used a scalloped cutter blade at the bottom of the white, added the ribbon, rub on sentiment, gems and doodled around the edge with a white gel pen. TFL.

Back soon,
Chris

brilliant card again Chris love those flowers don't have any SU stamps at the moment so cannot join in. I have the same problem with Brilliance, It gets so mess I have actually given up using it. I wonder if the pads get less juicy as we use them. Just never given them the chance as I have ruined so many pieces of work with them

Hi Chris,sorry I haven't been around for a bit, just haven't felt crafty and been busy too. Love this card, I know what you mean about the brilliance pads,I haven't used mine for a while but I seem to remember adding clear embossing powder and heating to set. Thanks for e mail, will speak soon.

Hi Chris thanks for your comments dear, I got the stamp on e-bay, but they are now so expensive they are asking £25 or more for just one stamp, I have given up buying them. If you e-mail me your address I will do you some images
