Craft Stamper inspiration

This card was made using the inspirational article on mono printing in the latest Craft Stamper magazine. I have entered it into the latest competition over at their blog here.

I used one of my larger acrylic stamping blocks and put the paint onto that. I smoothed the paint around a bit then placed the card on top of the paint. Gave it a good rub then peeled it off. I left it to dry for a day before going back and making up the card.

For the card, I cut the painted card to size then stamped on it using archival ink and Dyan Reaveley stamps. Added a few bits with pens and cut out the curly arrows and the text then added them with foam squares.

Hi Janet. I love how the movement of the monoprinting compliments the movement of the stamps! The saying made me laugh ~ so true!
Thank you for joining us at the Craft Stamper Take It, Make It challenge.
