A Retirement Card using the Alphabet Jungle Stamp Stamps

The Alphabet Jungle Stamp stamps are brilliant for creating scenes or adding pictures inside the stamps.  For my first sample with the stamps, I used the alphabet jungle stamp behind the stamps to create a Retirement panel card.

Trim a piece of Clarity stencil card to 6.75” x 6.75”. Lightly draw a pencil line 4cm from the bottom. Stamp one of the smaller stamps on the left hand side in Black Soot archival ink.
Mask off the whole stamp and add a second stamp next to the first in the same ink.
Mask off the second stamp and add the triangular stamp in the same way.
Continue until the panel is complete. Remove the masks and erase the pencil line.
Add a strip of mask blanks above and below the stamped images, leaving an open panel in between. Mask off the three small stamps on the left hand side of the panel.
Stamp the Alphabet Jungle stamp in Candied Apple, Fossilized Amber and Ripe Persimmon Distress Oxides over the masked area.
Move the stamp masks across and stamp the alphabet over the right hand side in Candied Apple and Fossilized Amber Oxides. Remove the masks.
Add a black squiggly line along the top and bottom of the panel using a black micron pen.
Stamp one of the Wee Africa stamps into each of the smaller stamps in Black Soot archival ink, masking as necessary.
Add Congratulations on your Retirement below the panel using the Entwined Sentiment stamps and Black Soot archival ink.
To finish, add to the front of a 7” x 7” black card blank.
