Good Luck Card

I thought I'd start with this one as it's a bit of a grey day outside and I thought it might cheer things up a bit.

There are lots of little stamps in the Lucky Set and I thought this was a great way to use them all. After all you can't have too much good luck!

I started off with the Good Luck stencil, inking through it with Black Archival.

Once that was dry I cut a piece of copy paper to cover it and stamped the border. I again used Archival for this as I wanted it nice and black. I left it to dry overnight and then coloured it in with ProMarkers - Bright Green and Poppy, with a little bit of Cool Grey 2 on the horseshoes. 

I was careful how I went around the Archival Ink with the Promarkers but as you can see it's fine. It's not like that there's a lot of blending (that might cause it to bleed).

Stamps and Stencils Used



  1. this is fab Lynne and a lovely spring like colour just reading the bit about leaving the stamping in archival overnight - does it not smudge then Lynne? x

    1. I leave it overnight as I figure it can only help. I think it you were blending a lot and "scrubbing" (I can't think of a better word) the Archival Ink it might bleed but as you can see from the bottom photo, for what I did it worked OK.

  2. i have used archival with promarkers and heat setting also helps. lovely citrusy card Lynne. Might get some inspiration from t xx
