Thanks for popping in. When I was picking orders the other day, I came across a few of these lovely stamps and their matching stencil. We’ve got such a vast selection of stamps and stencils and dies, some of the loveliest designs get forgotten, so I decided to shine a light on this one, illustrated for us by Mel.
I also noticed a lot of you were taking advantage of the Distress Oxide Ink Pad Offer on ALL colours, which is attached to this week’s You Tube Tuesday (ends Tuesday 2nd June). Here are the three I am using today
Mmm… I thought, how about I combine the beautiful Peacock Urn stamp with a lovely colour combo of the ink pads for Sunday’s blog, and add a bloggy offer…. How about this: you buy the stamp, and we give you the stencil FREE ...CLICK HERE
Here’s the Stamp and Stencil:
It’s a very simple demo. Often less is more. I picked Frayed Burlap because it is THE colour which goes perfectly with Kraft card. You’ll see…
Using Spot On sponges, dab the three colours over the stamp.
Simply print onto white stencil card, and lift. Nice blend of three cool colours. You could wait five minutes, then add Gold embossing powder. Very rich effect.
Without reloading the sponges, dab them onto the stamp again, then spritz with water. This is the magic bit…
Print the watery image onto stencil card again,
and then compare the two prints. I like both. I LOVE the water colour !
Drag the sponges along the edge of a cool sticker from Barb’s Sticker Booklet
You can see what I mean here, about Frayed Burlap tying in to the kraft card blanks. Works really well.
We even have a die of this design. Superb Paper cut Aperture Die. Weddings, anniversaries, birthdays. Yes. Lots of scope. CLICK HERE
Can you see the peacock ? Clever, huh?
