The Male Room - Challenge #33

There's a technique theme at The Male Room this next fortnight - Triple Stamping. Why not give it go?

http://themaleroomchallengeblog.blogspot.com/2016/04/challenge33-technique.html

Here's my card:


There's a video tutorial about triple stamping on the TMR blog, but this is how I made my card:

I started with three pieces of white card - 2" x 3.25", 3" x 4.25", 4" x 5.25" - all stuck together in a pile with repositional glue. I stamped the sentiment first and then covered it with a rectangular mask before stamping the rest of my images.


The three layers were then separated and matted onto green or grey card before being permanently stuck back into a pile again. The mats are all cut 0.25" larger than the white cards, which gives a really thin mat with just minimal disturbance of the the stamp lines.

Supplies:
Stamps: Bee Crafty, Phraes & Sentiments; Visible Image, Universal, Angels Are Near
Inks: SU, smoky slate; memento, tuxedo black
Card: SU, cucmber crush; grey from my stash

Neat technique don't you think?  I'm thinking this is a card destined for my scrapbook album. Hop on over and check out what the rest of the DT have created - here - and then be sure to have a go yourself.

Thanks for looking today, I hope I may have inspired you a little.  And keep crafting!

  1. What a fabulous card! I love the bold, graphic look of your card. The sentiment is great and I do like the way you've used two different colours for the mat layers. Great work. xxx
