Hello Turnabout Two Ways

I am so pleased to be joining the sweet folks at the Foiled Fox!!! The Hello Turnabout Stamp set from Concord & 9th stole my heart and I was so excited to see them carry it along with some of the other Concord & 9th  Turnabout line.

To recap, the turnabout line is where you turn the stamp 4 times to create a really fun background. Do you have to turn and stamp 4 times? Nope! It’s totally a preference for you.

When creating these cards, I used the MISTI Stamping Tool when using this stamp because it makes stamping it a breeze. In fact, the stamp sets were created with the MISTI stamping tool in mind.  I decided to create two cards using the same layout, but with two different color schemes. I stinky stink at creating masculine cards so I did try my hand at making one of these cards with a male in mind…

But first, let’s start with the bright colored background!  I stamped the Hello  Turnabout stamp in black/gray waterproof inks and then did some watercoloring using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers onto BRISTOL paper. Anytime I use Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers, I use Bristol paper. If I don’t use Bristol, I don’t like the results.

I scribbled the Zigs directly to the Bristol paper, and blended it out with water. Done and done. How easy is that! Added a sentiment strip to  the card and voila! That’s all… 🙂

My next card was stamped the same way, in shades of black and grey.   I cut out a circle, inked it up with one of the grey inks I used when stamping the background,  stamped the sentiment on there and finally colored in the hello with a green marker. That was a long sentence wasn’t it, lol…..

I popped up the circle, added a little stripes to the left side and well Oh, hello there – this card is done.

Two cards, stamped the exact same way but different looks due to the colors used, or in the second’s cards case – lack of color.

Thanks so much to the folks at The Foiled Fox for letting me visit with you all today! They are amazing people and I highly suggest you check out their blog for more inspiration.
