SO here is a nice little offering I prepared, using a couple of the stamps from yesterday’s TV show:
and its matching little stencil
Oh! And the Let Heaven & Nature Sing words. Love them!!
Stamp the matching flower through the stencil with a permanent ink pad – NOT Chipped Sapphire, because it will bleed with water. Use Cobalt Archival.
Use a decent paintbrush to drop water onto the little flowers.
let the water soak in and bloat with paper towel, kitchen roll.
Stamp the small silhouette leaf in the set using Cobalt Archival.
Add the leaf skeleton over the top.
Add some second, third and fourth generation ink leaves.
Archival ink is great for this. You can just keep planting the same stamp and it will get more and more faded.
Now add the lovely words in Archival too.
Let’s get in close and take a good look….
Frame the edges with the chisel end of a Promarker Blue Pen.
I like China Blue.
Mount on Gelli Card.
Or. We could add a little extra colour. A little accent….
Fuchsia pink Promarker in the centre of each flower
and a bright pink paper backdrop.
I hope you like these leafy flower sets.
There are four of them in total.
All have matching mini Stencils, too.
Lots of possibilities. Lots of scope. Masses.
I love putting little landscapes through the leaves.
Looks really cool.
But I must dash.
Only here for 5 days.
Brought a suitcase full of Prawn Cracker flavoured crisps,
Heinz Baked beans and Cadbury’s Chocolate.
Got to make the most of it .
Photos on Friday!!!!
lots of love,
