Tin of Cards #4

And the penultimate part of my Tin of Cards series... the last Bermuda Bay cards trio... my 4th card blank having been well and truly cut up for other cards....

First up... as the SU! design... just adding a bit of doodling around the wooden speech bubble...
Second up.... same but using the plain white back of the paper strip and colouring up the speech bubble with Mint Macaron ink using the Aquapainter... Bermuda Bay stamped stars with glossy embellishments over and some more doodling around the edge...
And lastly the Butterflies one... the coloured butterflies are just created using the Bermuda Bay ink pad and Aquapainter. White body part on large one being from pushed out scrap of large yellow butterfly and a bit of Bakers Twine for the antennae....

Now I have to add a comment about the black ink used here... I did not use Staz On as directed by Stampin' Up!  - we used Memento instead... Just one lady found that her very wet Memento pad meant that one greeting ran a little bit on the wood... the other 19 stampings were fine... though we did lightly sand the wood speech bubble first...

So why not use Staz On!? Although you can use Staz On with photopolymer stamps - I do NOT recommend it  - as it dries really fast on photopolymer compared to rubber - especially in this hot weather... so it is difficult to get a decent stamped impression... particularly on paper & card...

Nor do you want to get Staz On cleaner on your photopolymer stamps - it will degrade your stamps...

Tin & the dividers tomorrow... and a quick round up .... In the meantime...
Part 1 - the Shiny Gold Foil series shown here.
