Boho Backgrounds & DSP Outlaw

After using Boho Backgrounds stamp set and DSP Outlaw for my note card holder, I wanted to keep going with the fun, so I made up some cards!! I like how you can use this paper for any kind of card. These first cards are masculine - seeing as I have two birthdays for tommorow.

I've swiped the base of card with my ink pad, to give it a distressed look.

Stamped image above is from Summer by the Sea stamp set which has been stamped onto watercolour paper and coloured in with SU markers and aqua painter - love this technique.


These last two cards tend towards feminine, with bling, ribbon and paisley print. The sentiments in last card have been hi-lighted with Dimensional Magic. These cards were fun to make and I just wanted to share how a simple stamp set of only 4 stamps, can go along way and is very versatile for any kind of theme. Using the DSP Outlaw makes it quick and easy, especially when deciding on colours.

Again some really nice cards Chan - I love those colours - orange and browns - all nice and warm - perfect for winter! When I first saw that stamp set I didn't like it but now looking at your cards and also some of Keesh's cards it's actually a really great set to have! Hope you have a great week and take care - Luv, Erica xx

HI Chan,
Love the colours of these cards. THey are really brill. Isn't it great how you can get a masculine look and a feminine look just by changing the accessories. Very nice.
