Hello everyone, I have some more projects to share with you today showcasing the beautiful bookmark style houses that we brought to Hochanda last month. These three projects formed part of a TV demo that I did on one of the shows. I wanted to demonstrate how to stamp onto a patterned surface, and when an image is coloured, the image pops out, and the patterned surface recedes to the background.
I used a piece of Lesley's Chic Script Designer paper pack, and cut a piece of the script paper to size. I stamped the Tree House
onto the paper. I added a few lines at the bottom using a fineliner pen
to finish the landscape, and coloured the image with pencils. I added
shading with grey pencil for added depth.
I took a plain piece of green paper from the pach, and using one of the trees from Trees a Crowd
and a sentiment, I created a piece of background paper using Pistachio Memento
Ink. This was really quick to create, and you can have your own designer
background in minutes! I inked the edges of both pieces of paper with
the green ink for definition. As you can see, the script paper looks
great as a background, and the house sits really well on the pattern.
Tagtastic stamp and stamped onto a piece of book paper. I stamped the Garden House
image inside the tag, and coloured the image with pencils once again. I
added a bit of shading on the background using Distress Inks.
the large background, I used a large acrylic block and added pink, blue
and green Distress Oxide which I spritzed with water. I smooshed it
across a piece of drawing cartridge in one go. I stamped two bees from
the Honey Bee stamp set, and added a sentiment. I coloured the bees with pencils and added Stickles to the wings.
Heath Robinson House,
which I then coloured with pencils. I added bright red highlights which
I matched with a bright red ribbon. I added shading to the tag with
Distress Inks, matching the colour of the gelli print background.
