Another inky lampost

Today's card uses a resist technique to make the lampost look white on a coloured background.

"Resist Lampost"

The lampost is stamped onto white card using clear versamark, then heat-embossed with clear holographic powder before colouring with distress inks using the wrinkle-free distress technique.
"Glittery lamp"
The lamp is coloured in the same way as yesterday's with a faux bleach technique and yellow distress marker
"Tree Charm"

A tree charm is hung from a brad (N.B. I like to colour white brads with embossing powder by dipping into versamark, then embossing powder and heating with a heat tool; unfortunately, you can see in the photo where I missed a bit and didn't notice!).


Netting and lace add some terxture.


  1. Gorgeous card as always love seeing all the different techniques. Love Alison xx

  2. This is a gorgeous card Maddy. And so what if you missed a bit of the all adds character to the card. Its a gorgeous card. Lee x

  3. Loving those lamp posts Maddy! Gorgeous colours and the embossing powder is wonderfully sparkly!
