Tanda Teaser - Monochrome

 Have just been playing with this Tanda Oriental Panel image.   One of my favourite stamps it is very versatile the design is pretty much a mirror image and works either way up.   Please excuse the wonky angle the surface was not completely flat that the card is standing on.

Had a couple of goes at this, the Tanda Teaser this week is Monochrome decided in the end to use just Adirondack Sail Boat Blue.   Swiped this over the card first just on the side the stamp would be on.   Inked the stamp with the same pad blotted it and then stamped it onto the card.









For my second card I used the peacock panel from Tanda's Art Nouveau Borders, and sentiment from their Birthday verses.   A small red brayer inked up with Big n Juicy Waterfall ink then transferred to the images.  Glamour dust sprinkled over the wet ink  while not visible in the picture just gives it a lift.  Both the stamp sets used here are part of the new stocks of Tanda stamps at Craft-Room.

As well as entering both cards into the Tanda Teaser, they are are being entered into Less is More which this week is use ink.   Messing around with ink is very much my territory it is by its nature messy!   You do not have to be neat clean and tidy with it even with a CAS style.  step outside the norm be a little un-conventional express yourself let go and see what happens you have no one to please but yourself.

Right removal man coming to give me a quote this afternoon best get on and maybe get the sucky thing out.

  3. Hello Zoe

    Nobody is watching so having a little blog around, oh to be able to spend hours as I used to, but c'est la vie.

    I love the panel in sail boat blue, I am sure I have it somewhere long forgotten and feel a need to hunt it down.

    Hope things are OK with you, afrid I am totally out of the loop where you are at.
