Thanks for popping in. Just got lost in some colouring in. Such a relaxing, therapeutic thing to do, don’t you agree?
I took Tina’s floral bouquet, and stamped it onto a scrap which has been hanging around my artroom for ages. It’s on our Clarity coated cardstock, hence the ultra glossy finish.
Years ago, when we used to use this card, we struggled to apply colour to it. It was tricky to stamp on, and it was tricky to colour in. Now, with our blending pens, a blending mat and our Perga Colours – the effect is pretty professional; like a proper print. Have a look at this little step by step.
We got right into the dropshadow technique yesterdayduring the Craftalong Tutorial on TV, didn’t we? Here I am doing the same thing, but using a blending pen and diluted ink on shiny, coated stock. Really great for practicing, because it moves around on the coated surface.
The old background scrap is dye based bottled ink, dragged across the card with a sponge. Tina’s bouquet is stamped with a permanent black ink pad – a black Archival.
Very, very easy to do. You just need:
- a stamp,
- this Claritycard,
- a Black Archival ink pad,
- a few Artistry inkpads (one of those little boxes of 12 will be perfect),
- the Perga Colours,
- our Clarity blending pens
- and about an hour
Very chilled now. Until tomorrow –
Love and Hugs
