Visible Image Stamps–Painted Wood Set by Elaine Burnett– March 2013 Guest Designer

Hi Everyone

We have a special treat for you today as the lovely Elaine Burnett is this month’s Guest Designer.

"I have been married to Andy for almost 24 years and I am a SAHM with three children, two boys aged 17 and 15 and a little girl who is 6. I have previously designed for Crafters Companion, Spectrum Noir, Nigel May and Teddy Bo. I have been papercrafting for the last 10 years but have always liked all things crafty from being a little girl. I love stamping, colouring and digi work and love to play with all things paper!"
She is a talented lady and makes the most wonderful cards.
She has taken one of the Visible Image stamp sets and made this gorgeous creation for you.  This is a great project for even the beginner stamper and once you start stamping you’ll be hooked.

Painted Wood Set Card

Elaine has stamped the wood plank 4 times using black ink (we would always recommend Versafine Onyx Black for the clarity) she has then mounted onto the card base using 3D foam pads to give depth.  Next Elaine has stamped the individual elements in the set and added them on top.  Dad is simply stamped in the centre.  Stunning in black and white.


Please pop over to see Elaine's blog at:-

We will put up another of Elaine's card creations later this month.

We hope you have been inspired.

Thanks for Popping By

Creative Expressions Stamps - Beaded Elements Set
Distress Ink - Walnut Stain
