Twilight Fairground with Card-io stamps
Category: Mixed Media
In my last post I said that one of the things I really love about this range of stamps is how they can be used together. To demonstrate, I've chosen some of the most recent stamps and used them in a picture with stamps from a winter themed collection to show what I mean.
So the gate, wellies (love the wellies!!), hot air balloon and light bulbs were all released just before easter 2017. The big top tent, fir trees and ferris wheel come from a winter collection released (I think) just before christmas 2016. There's no reason you can't mix and match. And it works.
The grass is from "Hedgerow" from a different company, Craftwork Cards. Although Card-io have a few foliage stamps you can use to build up the foreground, I like this tall grass stamp. It applies nice and quickly and you can add variation by using a couple of different greens when you are inking the stamp up. Here I used the mini Green Tea and Pinecone from Versacolour. You can see how in the video below. Enjoy!
