Hi - New Darkroom Door Texture Stamp


 Darkroom Door has just released an amazing new collection of stamps this week.                              Go here to check them out!  


I received the 'Plaid' texture stamp in the mail last week and enjoyed creating this tag card with it over the weekend.


To begin with, I stamped the 'Plaid' texture stamp and five of the birds from the 'Carved Birds Vol 2' stamp set onto a plain white tag with red ink and swiped the edges of the tag with the same ink.  I coloured the eyes and feet of each bird with a black fine liner pen.  


Next I stamped the 'Chevron' background stamp onto a piece of white card with black ink, cut it to size and swiped the edges of that piece with black ink and mounted the tag onto it.  


Finally I embellished the card with two circles (heart and hi) from the 'Simply Circles' stamp set, added a few cross stitches, a piece of black ric-rac and black ribbon to complete the card.  

How simple is that?  I really love the county feel you get with the 'Plaid' texture stamp and it's a wonderful size to work with too!

Supplies Used:
Darkroom Door Texture Stamp Plaid
Darkroom Door Stamp Sets - Carved Birds Vol 2 and Simply Circles
Darkroom Door Background Stamp Chevron
Ink - Midnight Black and Red (VersaMagic)
White card and white luggage tag
Thread, ric-rac, ribbon and black pen
