City break & ink smooshing

Hello, Tea Timers!

If you are into memory keeping, this release will be a dream for you! But if you are NOT into memory keeping, this might just get your curious about it, like it did me. I have never done memory keeping before, but I then saw some examples and I was fascinated! I am very keen on giving it a go, and I have some ideas in mind already!

In the meantime, I have made some cardmaking projects with some of the items from this new release and I will share with you throughout the next month or so.

Today's card features the City Break stamp set. Before Covid came about, my other half and I did not gift each other material things, but travel experiences instead, so that we would create memories together. Now that we can travel again, I love the idea of using this card for a 'city break' present for him!

For the background, I did some ink smooshing with some wilted violet, chipped shappire and broken china distress oxides. I love this technique, you can make stunning backgrounds so quickly!

I used yellow cardstock and stamped the solid city skyline with Versafine black onyx ink - this ink is super juicy and covers the stamp very well! I am excited to try the same stamp with multiple colour inks too. I fussy cut the skyline out and went around the edges with a black marker to cover the yellow that was showing through.

To finish it off, I used the new enamel dots, which I adore! The colours are sooo pretty and I love that they come in 3 different sizes.

Sending hugs,
