Darkroom Door Stamp Set

Thanks to Gillian and Lesley for such wonderful and inspirational projects using the Darkroom Door stamps etc. The only problem is how do you follow such fab creations...eeekkk
Well, I cant put this post off any, here goes

The products used are:
Darkroom Door 'Chorus' stamp set
Tim Holtz Idea-ology Tissue Tape (Music)
Distress Ink Pads; Weathered Wood, Tea Dye, Brushed Corduroy
Distress Reinker - Brushed Corduroy

1.Cut a piece of white card to fit onto a black card blank, leaving a small border.
2.Ive taken one of the labels/poster looking stamps and stamped it in weathered wood all over the white card, then just wiped over with a piece of cut n'dry to soften the stamped image.
3.Then I took the stamp saying 'Those who wish to sing always find a song', again stamped it in weathered wood and then wiped over with the cut n'dry to soften the look and wiped the colour over the card so you cant see any white left. Colour the edges with Tea Dye. Cut some V shapes into the card and colour with Brushed Corduroy.
4. Next, I placed a small strip of the tissue tape onto the card and wiped some charcoal round it to give it some depth.
5.I coloured some scraps of white card with weathered wood, then stamped the woman, the label/poster and the wording 'Music is an outburst of the soul' then cut them all out and edge them in Tea Dye.
6. With the label/poster cut out image, cut some V shapes and colour with Brushed Corduroy.Bend the edges and give it a rough distressed look, add to the card with the woman cut out too.
7. Make up a solution of a bit of water and some Brushed Corduroy Reinker in a mister bottle and spritz over the cut words before adding to them card, as shown. Also spritz over the card.
8. Finally, add the stamped/inked panel onto the black card base.

I shall be adding a couple more cards to the blog over the next week but they are very simple and a tad experimental (they dont look as good as that might sound lol)
