Hello everyone, I hope that you are all keeping well. I am sharing more projects today from last month's TV shows on the Craft Store, where we showcased the fabulous Retro Vases and Retro Floral stamps. As I mentioned in my last post, if you would like these stamps, you can give Lesley or David a call at the unit, and they will take an order from you, as these stamps are not available on the website.
to create a little scene for my first card. I used some torn strips of
paper to create some hills, using Distress Ink and a blending brush. I
added a circle mask to create a sun. Once the background was created, I
chose some suitable silhouette stamps from the two sets and stamped
those using various colours from the Versafine Clair range of inkpads. I
used first and second generation stamping to create some depth to the
foliage. The little butterfly stamp comes from the Butterfly Blush stamp set, so useful for this kind of scene. The sentiment comes from the Life is so much Better stamp set.
For this first card, I used an inky plate background.
the second card, I used a Brusho background. Matting the layers onto
black card adds more definition. The sentiments are from the Say it Vertically stamp set.
final card was a quick card created straight onto a card blank. I
stamped three vases using Versafine Clair ink, which I masked with
Masking Tissue. I then coloured the floral staps with Koh-I-Noor brush pens and
stamped them above the vases, before removing the masks. I added a bit
of shading with a grey pencil to 'ground' the vases.
really had a lot of fun working with these stamps, and hope that you
have found some inspiration in my projects. Thanks for stopping by, take
