Hi, I'm Pam and thank you for visiting my blog. I have been making cards for over 10 years and am an independent demonstrator for Creative Expressions. I am lucky enough to teach on cruise ships and also get the chance to demo at The Big Stamping and Scrapbooking Show at Alexander Palace. I run workshops for a local craft shop and if anyone would like details of the them please e-mail me at stephen.smith870@ntlworld.com I love to scrapbook but my all time favourite thing is to get messy with ink!

Alfie the Dog

Good Morning All and a very Happy Tuesday!

As promised, I'm going to use Reverse Masking today to make a card using "Alfie", another Creative Expressions Singles Stamp.

Ink the stamp with Black Archival and stamp onto Coconut White Card.

Stamp again onto a piece of copier paper.  Cut the dog out leaving a large area of paper around the cut out image.

Tape the paper over the stamped image.

Ink up the large dot Background Stamp with Saffron Archival and stamp over the masked image.

Remove the paper mask.

Using Distress Inks, paint the scarf and floor with Rusty Hinge and Alfie with Scattered Straw.

Matt and layer onto Chestnut and Ginger Foundations Card.

Stamp the Dot Background onto a larger piece of Coconut White Card with Saffron Archival Ink.

Emboss with the A4 Interlocking Circles Folder.

Highlight the raised areas with Scattered Straw Distress Ink.

Matt and layer with the Chestnut and Ginger Card.

Matt and layer strips of the same colour card and attach Yellow and White Bakers Twine. 

Glue onto the background.

Stamp the sentiment from the "Paws-Itiveley" set onto the main image with Black Archival Ink.

Add to the main card with 3d foam pads.

And there's the finished card!

Hope you like it.  Reverse Masking is a great way of adding detail to a stamped image.  The stamp shouldn't have too much detail for this to work.

Anyway, that's it for this week.  I'll be back next Tuesday with another project.  Many thanks for stopping by and until next time, have a happy, crafty week!
