Remembrance Day at The Male Room

Today, all over the world, Remembrance Day is celebrated, although here in Australia we tend to focus more on Anzac Day than today.  There are special parades and remembrance services going on today though, and it is still a day for contemplating and remembering.
At The Male Room, we are asking you to create a project using the Remembrance Day theme, or Sympathy.

I have made a Sympathy card for my project, using a technique that I really like for this type of card.

The technique I have used for the background is the direct ink technique, in this case, the ink is put directly onto a clear mount block (without a stamp on it) and then directly onto the card stock.  I have swiped some different coloured inks across my block, and before pressing the inked block onto my cardstock, I have stuck a circle of punched out Post It note down, to create the white circle “moon”.  I think the subtlety of this background is perfect for Sympathy cards.
Over the background ink, I have then stamped some images from the Wetlands, and The Wilderness Awaits stamp sets.
I hope you will join in with us at The Male Room again this fortnight.
Happy Stamping!
Chris

  1. This is one of my favourite techniques too, I tend to use it with my Wetlands stamp, so it obviously fits the bird/duck images. They also make great sympathy cards for men. Very calming, lovely card
