Gina K. Day 2 Preview: Timeless Treasures


timeless clock

Well, Theresa Momber did it again – another wonderfully illustrated set like no other I personally have seen done in rubber stamps! It’s a timeless collection of vintage-collage type stamps! The reason I say collage-type stamps is because that is how I chose to showcase them on my sample to share! I can imagine great scrapbook pages with this set too (you know you have older photos like black & white you aspire to scrapbook! I know I do)

I used the retiform (grid) technique, where I first stamped my images in memento rich cocoa ink on Gina K. baseweight ivory cardstock randomly. Then, I took post-it notes and randomly covered up spaces working from light to dark inks sponging color to create a collage look. I used mustard, rust and olive inks. Then, I distressed up the outer edges and layered it on chocolate kiss cardstock. I then remembered I had a package of Heidi Swapp ghost shapes – clocks and knew that would be a great addition to this card {I won them in a blog candy eons ago and was saving them up for the right project!) You won’t be able to tell because I just couldn’t photograph it well enough, but I dabbed some alcohol inks and gold metallic ink on the back of the clock. I added a brown brad to the center and a flourish punch to the corner.
