Hi, friends, it’s Chark here today to show you some digital stamps I turned into cards. I took the City Adventures digital stamps and printed the city silhouette onto dull (not glossy) coated paper twice. After that, I used Distress Oxides to color the backgrounds. I used a lots of water to mix and swirl the colors. When I was happy with them, I let them dry.
I did wipe down the silhouette with a paper towel to get the Oxide inks off the black images, but it worked fine. You’ll notice I moved the cityscape to one side for the Valentine so I could put in the sentiment and hearts.
For one of the cards, I added a birthday sentiment to one card and to the other one, I added a digital sentiment and digital hearts from The Firmament digi kit. In this close-up you can see the Silver Stickles I used for the stars.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
