Hello everyone, I have a couple more cards to share using this month's Babushka stamp set. I absoloutely love the versatility of this quirky stamp set, and the many possibilities that the stamps offer.
my first card, I created a wrinkle free Distress background, using Salty Ocean Distress Ink on smooth watercolour paper. I stamped the three dolls onto some white card using white embossing
powder and I also stamped the face areas again onto some spare card using
black ink. I coloured the images using Distress Markers and a water
brush. I cut the dolls out, and decoupaged the faces onto the white embossed dolls.
I die cut some hexagons, and stamped the flower head from the Breath of Spring
stamp set on to the hexagons, again using white embossing powder. I
coloured the hexagons using various tones of blue Distress Ink, to match the
Babushka dolls. I ironed off the white embossing from the hexagons using copy paper. I drew faux stitching to the edges of the shapes using a fine-tipped marker. I also added faux
stitching around the edge of the background. Finally, I added a
sentiment from the Amazing Birthday clear stamp set.
I stamped a window fragment from the Texture Fragments
stamp set onto my background, and added gold embossing powder. Before
using the heat gun, I stamped the large fragment from the Dusky Damask
stamp set using Elderberry Memento Ink into two of the corners of the
background, and added clear embossing powder. I then heat set the
I covered the background with a blend of pink
and purple Distress Inks, before adding a stencil, and repeated the process, to
deepen the colours. I stamped the Babushka images onto a spare piece of
card, using gold embossing powder, and coloured them using the corresponding colours in Distress Markers, picking the colours up using a water brush. Finally, I added a sentiment from the For Mum clear stamp set.
