Hello everyone, there is a new Mixed Media show airing today on the Craft Channel, featuring our lovely Boss Lesley Wharton, and some great stamps from Chocolate Baroque. These stamps have been around for a little while and it has been fun to pull them out and create some new samples with them.
For my first project, I mixed all of the stamp sets from the show to create a card, based on a design that I used when the stamps first came out. I made a collaged background, laying down some colour with Distress Ink and water, and then adding various stamped images in different sepia tones. I made some mini postcards using images from the Curiosities stamp set, using the little corner stamps to create a border around each one. I edged all of the layers with a terracotta coloured ink by swiping the ink pad along the edge of the pieces of card.
I stamped the words onto the canvas strips using Archival Ink. I stamped the foliage onto the greyboard panel using a variety of coloured Archival Inks, and then added a couple of birds from the Landscape Edges stamp set. I added a bit of gilding wax to the textured flowers on the background. I used Library Green Archival Ink to edge all of the layers before assembling the project.
