No Matter the Distance

LeeAnn Leonard

Posted on June 03 2022

Happy June!!  LeeAnn here with an idea for thinking outside the box with scene building stamp sets.  I like to find creative ways to use scene building stamps other than the obvious choice.  Creating a background different from the expected is sometimes difficult to imagine.  The No Matter the Distance Pocket Pals stamp set is filled with images to create a travel scene and can be used in conjunction with related sets in the Spring Collection.  I decided to create a background that goes with the travel theme, but isn't necessarily a "scene".  I love color, so I started with blending my favorite rainbow in LDRS Hybrid Inks.
With a circle mask in place, I blended Pink Tutu, Peachy Keen, Banana Cream Pie, Prickly Pear, Little Boy Blue, and Parisian Purple around the edge of the circle mask.  Who doesn't feel good when seeing a rainbow!!??
Remove the circle mask and next add your stamped images and sentiment from the set.  These are such darling images!  I stamped all of them in Raven Hybrid Ink.  I colored the center images in alcohol inks then used a white gel pen to add a white border around the circle.  I also added compass points between the stamped images and colored in half of the points to mimic a compass.  
Lastly, I die cut the panel using the A2 Stitched Layered Frames Dies and layered onto black cardstock.  I then layered the card panel onto an A2 sized white card base and added some sequins for shine.  I love the contrast created with the black stamped images and the soft rainbow blend.  What is your favorite part of the card?
I hope you're having a wonderful summer and find some time to craft!!
Crafty hugs,
