Speshink DT Louise - The Gent and The Aviator Monochrome.

Morning all and thanks you for stopping by. 
Today Louise is back with us and sharing a couple of fantastic makes using my 'The Gent' stamp and 'The Aviator'.
My stamps can be found on my Etsy Store Here or on the 

Louise's first project is a monochrome black and white card that was ideal for fathers day. xx


Keeping this card black and white gave this a simple finish i really like.

  1. Taking a 15x21cm bit of card I rounded off the edges with a corner punch.
  2. Masking off the Gent stamp with masking tape i covered the wreath frame and then inked with versafine onyx black. Removing the tape i stamped out the Gent on the card.
  3. Then covering the stamped image with a mask made from a post it note, stamp out the gears in the background. I used a Chocolate Baroque Stamp June Gears in versafine Smokey Gray
  4. At the base of the gent i stamped over the mask using a Top Hat watches stamp from Creative Expressions CER014 in onyx black.
  5. The watches were stamps from the Top Hat set. I stamped them onto some card and cut each watch 11 in total the largest is a stampede nostalgic pocket watch stamp A2528D. I then layered and glued them around the Gent.
  6. The Phrase "Time is not measured by clocks but by moments " i printed out and added as the finishing touch. 



Keeping with the black and white Monochrome Louise has also created this beautiful card using my Aviator stamp.



  1. I firstly took a square piece of card, and stamped the image of the Aviator in black versafine to the right of the square. Then using a black watercolour paint, watered down, painted shading into the image
  2. Once the paint was dry, i masked the image with a post it note.  Along the bottom and right hand edge I stamped in black a frame. The stamp used for this is a Kate Pertiest Autumn Leaves on the edge AL3040
  3. To finish the image,i stamped "be unique" to the left, using a Crafter Companion Stamp "Words to Inspire" set 1 TXT.ST.INSP1
  4. Mounting the square onto black card it was glued to a 7x7 card  and hey Pesto ..


Again thank you everyone for stopping by. Head back next Monday to see something new from the Speshink Design Team. xxx
