Hi folks, here are a couple more Christmas samples for you using the Tangled Baubles Big Background stamp. For my first sample, I created a background using alcohol inks. I dropped alcohol inks onto some water in an old ice cream tub, and then dipped my card into the tub, ensuring the background was completely covered with colour. Once I had dried the background with a heatgun, I stamped the image using archival ink. I stamped part of the image again onto another spare piece of card, also coloured with the alcohol inks, so that I could decoupage one of the baubles. I added some co-ordinating card to mat and layer the image, and stamped a sentiment from the Gothic Angels stamp sheet.I simply added some ribbon to finish.
second card uses the Tangled Bauble stamp again as my focal
point, and this time, I simply stamped the image with black archival
ink. I then watercoloured the background using some red paint, adding
shading for depth around the baubles. I stamped a sentiment from the Pears and Baubles
stamp sheet onto a piece of card, slightly larger than the sentiment
itself. I used a permanent pen to draw a design around the outside, and
after making sure that it was completely dry, I used the same
watercolour paint to colour the border. I used some co-ordinating card
to add some matting and layering again.
These simple cards are quite quick to make, and would be great for anyone who loves Zentangle.
Thanks for stopping by, xx
