Hello Crafters!

Here’s a quick reminder for you all that the challange over Craft Stamper Magazine is still open! Theme for this month is “Anything Goes” so this mean that you can submit any creation you made but , in your creation there must be at lease one stamped image! So grab your favorite stamp and play along!

I made this fun card with one of my favorite stamp from Carabelle!


The base for my card is a white plain card-stock that I covered with plenty of acrylic paint. I choose a very bright color palette and added color in different spots. I let it dry and then I stamped my two images.
I grabbed a white acrylic paint and colored where I didn’t want the color to show up.


Final detail was to add, of course, a scribble stitch made with my sewing machine! I just love the way this simple stitch and the white background make the colors pop!

Here is the full image!

And that’s all for today, If you have any questions, suggestions or if you want to let me know what  you think of this project, leave a message!

Ciao a tutti!

Ecco un piccolo promemoria per ricordarvi che il challange del blog di Craft Stamper Magazine è ancora aperto!
Il tema di questo mese è “Anything Goes” , questo significa che potete linkare tutti i vostri progetti purchè abbiano almeno una timbrata! La timbrata deve essere di un timbro reale, quindi niente digi stamp!
Dunque prendete il vostro timbro preferito e venite a giocare con noi!

Io ho creato questa card simpatica usando uno dei miei timbri preferiti della marca Carabelle!


La base della mia card è un semplice cartoncino bianco liscio che ho coperto usando diversi toni di acrilico. Ho scelto una palette di colori abbastanza brillante e ho aggiunto questi colori in parti diverse dello sfondo. Ho lasciato asciugare e poi ho fatto le mie due timbrate.

Ho preso un acrilico bianco e ho ricoperto le parti dove non volevo si vedesse il colore.


Il dettaglio finale è stato, ovviamente, aggiungere una serie di cuciture con la macchina da cucire. Adoro il modo in cui una semplice cucitura ed uno sfondo bianco mettono in risalto questi bei colori brillanti!

Ecco l’immagine finale!

And that’s all for today, If you have any questions, suggestions or if you want to let me know what  you think of this project, leave a message!

    This is fabulous, Zoey! The white-pained background makes the other colours really pop and the black stitched border makes the perfect frame. Need to try this technique!

    I made a canvas so similar to this and am really inspired to translate the technique into stamping. Thanks Zoey and loving that the comments are so easily accessible on the new site – congrats on it! <3
