Welcome to the start of Avery Elle August Release Week! This month Avery Elle is releasing FOUR new sets as well as FOUR new colors of card stock and ribbon! Today's set is called Ikat and it's unlike anything you've seen out in stamp land! If you're a fan of textile design or interior design, you're familiar with this fun trend!
My first card practically made itself:) I used the ikat hexagon stamp. Each of the stamps in this collection are strips and are great background builders! I LOVE the natural look of the ikat pattern (especially on the speckled card stock)! The striations in the design really give it a lots of texture. This card was so easy to put together, I had time to make another:)
To get a more modern look from the same stamp, I randomly stamped only one of the images using a half stamp technique. To get this look, just ink up the image, stamp off half the image onto something raised (I used a pad of paper), and then stamp the whole image. The result is a cool two-tone look! Super easy!
That's it for me! Don't forget to visit the Jamie, Heather, Kasia, and Chunyuan! I can't wait to see the lovelies they have to share! Check them out!
