Hello everyone, I have three projects to share with you today, which I took with me to last month's TV shows on Hochanda to use as demos on the shows. If you watched the shows, you will have seen two of these projects in action, but the third one did not make it to air, because the stamp featured sold out so fast. That's the nature of live TV!
my first project, I created a watercolour background on a large piece
of cartridge paper, and stamped a selection of stamps from the Underwater and Mermaid Queen over the top. I cut a postcard sized piece of cartridge paper, and stamped the seashells from Seaside Dreams,
and masked the image. I added a watercolour wash over the background. I
coloured the shells once I had removed the mask, using just three
colours of Distress Ink, Salty Ocean, Fossilized Amber and Rusty Hinge, mixing the three colours to create a
variety of different shades. I added a sentiment to the bakground.
I created a postcard back by drawing some lines using a fineliner pen, and adding images from the Mail Art stamp set. Once I had completed all of my elements, I assembled the card.
Underwater stamp set across the background, using first, second and third generation stamping. I also added a sentiment.
Finally, I stamped the Ammonite
image onto cartridge paper using some of the left over diluted Brushos,
which I picked up from my craft mat, directly onto the stamp. I used a
water brush to draw some of the colour from the outline of the image. I
cut the image out, and attached it to the card using 3D foam pads.
