I’m back with some more Trinity Stamps inspiration for you, but this time I played with the super cute Bunny Burrow stamp set & co-ordinating dies!
I started by stamping a load of images onto a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock using Versafine Onyx Black ink. This is my preferred ink when I’m only lightly adding water to the images, but I did heat set it just to be sure that it was totally dry.
Colouring & Diecutting
I grabbed my Arteza Real Brush Pens to colour the images and just got down to colouring! Whilst I love this kind of card, and these adorable critter stamps, I am not as comfortable with them as I am with florals, so I just took my time and enjoyed the process, without worrying too much about getting everything perfect.
To be honest, a little imperfection in blending completely fits with the style of these images and more than likely wouldn’t even be seen on the final project! Whenever I am stressing about getting things perfect that’s what I remind myself, well that and the fact that no handmade card will ever be perfect, nor would the recipient expect it to be!
Once I was happy with my images, I die cut each one out and got to work on my background. I chose a couple of blues and greens from my ink collection, a cloudy border stencil, a grassy bank stencil, blending brushes and an 80lb Neenah A2 panel. I added some rough ink blending to create a sky and ground for my scene to take place on.
I did make a bit of a mistake though because when choosing my inks I should have looked again at the greens I had used on my burrow, but I didn’t and I never realised until I went to assemble my card that they are two completely different greens! Not to worry though, I think it turned out OK in the end! (*And if anyone asks, it was an intentional distinction between the grass where they live and the posh, imported grass they used to construct their Burrow! 😉)
Making The Scene
The only thing I feel like this stamp set is missing, is a couple of sentiments; I would have loved to see at least a couple included really, in the same way Mouse House has some. That is really my only criticism of it.
Finishing The Card
I just grabbed a simple Happy Birthday stamp from my stash and added it to the upper left corner in the sky.
So that’s it from me for this week, but I’ll be back to catch up and offer some inspiration again next Saturday!
Thank you for spending this time with me, have a great week!!
