Happy Easter Weekend!

Happy Easter Weekend!

Hi there,
Thanks for stopping by.
Saturday’s blog a new technique.
Well today I thought it might be cool to tackle a panel, but focus on the background rather than the stamped image. 
Haven’t got long to play, but would like to wish you all 
a very happy Easter Weekend, so here’s a quick and easy offering.
Let’s take a look…
On 7″ x 7″ Gelli Card,
let’s make a panel using low tack masking tape.

Saturate the whole panel with a Distress pad. 
I used Squeezed Lemonade; 
Mustard See would be fab too.

Let’s have a peep… perfect.
Back on with the masking tape,

and let’s stamp the wonderful huge Wallflower stamp 
along the panel, using Black Archival.

Fill the whole panel.

Instead of colouring in the flowers, let’s tackle the background.
I used a Spectrum Noir blue pencil to do this.

Varying depths of colour but always using the same dark blue pencil. 
Of course, the words had to be positioned and masked off 
before I even started on the panel, but I wanted to show you how to make the backdrop actually!
Will be using the brand new Woodprint Letterbox set tomorrow 
in the show. They make a pleasant change to the traditional Clarity Letterbox Kit. 
From myself and all at Clarity,
may you have a wonderful Easter break and bank holiday.
Must go pack!
Much love,

  1. Hi Barb,
    Wishing you ,Dave and all at Clarity (& on the blog) a very Happy Easter.
    Really like this, the wallflower stamp is gorgeous and the new letterbox stamps look good too. I don't think my bank manager is going to be pleased as I've ordered the personalised stamp, fresco paints and some new stamps already!!! Looking forward to the shows. Love to all, Alison xx

  15. I love the effect of the pencil over the yellow ink, especially how you've varied the depth of colour. hard to believe it's just one blue pencil. Happy Easter and all the best for the shows.

  16. I do like a good panel, simple but effective. Have stamped a design before and have never thought to colour in the background! The different slant you throw on things never seases to amaze me. XX

  17. Hi Barbara This corner stamp is gorgeous and the new letterbox letters look fun too. Love the wallpaper look of the panel (William Morris ! That's the one!!!). I hope the shows go well tomorrow, might get to see the first hour but I've put it on record so will be able to catch up later. I hope you and your family and all at Clarity have a wonderful Easter.
