but I love, love, love the new Designer Paper Pads.
They are vibrant and funky and have so many uses.
So, I am going to with some funky stamps
(currently in the members sale!)
So let’s have a play………
Take a piece of Designer Paper,
I have chosen a piece from the Brighton Rock Collection
and stamp the largest of the Funky Foliage stamps
with a Black Archival ink pad
Now take a post-it note and position it along
the bottom of the stems.
Ink up the stamp again and stamp the image
to the right and slightly lower
Time to add some colour to the foliage.
I was going to go straight in with the Colour Blend
but I wanted to try something different.
amount of water to apply a base colour to the flowers.
If your brush is too wet, the paper will buckle slightly,
but don’t panic, it does dry out well.
Time to add a bit of depth.
to compliment my Artistry Ink Pad colours
The shading is subtle, but what I like about this effect,
is that you can still see the pattern
of the paper coming through.
Trim down your design and layer onto black card
leaving a small border
Take one of the Word Chain words of your choice
and stamp onto a scrap piece of the same Designer Paper.
Time to make the base.
I have used another piece of the same Designer Paper,
trimmed down to 7.5″ x 7.5″ and layered onto
a piece of black card and then onto an 8″x8″ card blank.
I wasn’t sure where I wanted to position my toppers,
so before I stuck them down, I tried a few layouts
They all work really well, but I think my
favourite is the first one.
Don’t throw away all the scraps
They will come in useful for various techniques.
A real bonus for me in relation to the Designer Papers
is that I can make a card really quickly
and really cleanly!!!
I hope you have enjoyed my
little take over for today.
Normal service will resume tomorrow!
Have a great evening.
