Thanks for popping in!
Just a quickie today,
showing you a step by step of one of today’s TV demos.
Sometimes I worry that you may think that I am neglecting stamping, because of all the Grooviness going on!
To be honest, sometimes I worry the same thing!
It isn’t going to happen though.
Stamps are my passion.
Always have been. Always will be.
It’s just when you are launching a brand new concept and product, it gobbles up so much time, from R&D to design.
So today on the box,
I decided to take a trip down memory lane,
and create a little landscape using just one tree and a bit of torn paper.
Just because I seldom do this, doesn’t mean I have forgotten how.
But if I were still doing nothing but this,
would I really have been able to hold your attention?
I think not.
So to the little card..
We will tear a hill with the side of the Clarity Blending mat
Make a frame around the coated Claritycard with masking tape.
Add a Moon mask.
Load the Speedball brayer with Denim on the blending mat
and roll in a sky.
Add the paper hill and brayer in more sky.
Roll the last of the blue down the bottom of the pic.
Buff the picture now with a paper cloth or tissue now.
Glossy, or what?! And that’s what Claritycard is all about.
A professional artboard which buffs to a hi-gloss after ink has been applied and dried.
Stamp the larch tree from the NEW Wee Trees stamp set
using Black Archival.
(Check out the NEW Wee Foliage too!)
Position a hill with the paper,
turn the tree round, and build a fence,
paying attention to distance and depth.
(the further away, the closer together and shorter!)
Provided the fence posts are dry, you can add a little shadow
with a brush or make-up sponge.
So this is where we’re at now.
Add another hill in the distance to anchor the lone larch tree.
Torn paper and brush are best for the job.
Remove masking tape and love it.
Add the wire between the fence posts using a black Micron pen.
Add snow using the fine end of a Groovi tool and some SNOWFLAKE Acrylic paint.
Dib dib dib…
Trim and frame on black.
Check out the gloss on that card!!
Hope you have enjoyed your Sunday thus far.
Bear with us if we seem to neglect stamps sometimes;
we just can’t keep up with it all !
2016 promise to be a pretty phenomenal
Clarity design year though.
Oh boy do we have some super stuff lined up!
So are you a Stamper ?
A stenciller ?
Or all 3 ?!
Tell me below. I want to get an impression,
so that we get it right!
love and hugs,
