Thanks for popping in. Dark and gloomy day outside, so here’s a simple little flower greeting for you, to brighten up your day.
Tuesday’s blog rolls back the hours, right? Well, this fab bouquet was drawn by our dear Tina some time ago, and fast became one of our most popular Clarity designs.
In fact, a whole series of this style but different popped up. Look!
and there’s a Chinese Lantern to add too! I drew this one!
You’ll notice that they all have infill stamps, which is brilliant for colouring, embossing and spot glazing. But the sprays themselves, just on their own, are fabulous actually.
Here’s a simple step by step for you to try.. I thought I’d use the new Backdrop stamps as a base…
Quick trick: dab a water colour pad on the backdrop stamp. Rose here. Spread the ink out over the A5 or A6 stamp with a brayer. Scrunch up a sheet of copy paper and dab the scrucned up paper over the stamp. Then pull your print for a super lovely background.
Mudstone Artistry Ink is a cool backdrop colour too
How about a mix of pink and lilac?
Simple stamping exercise now. Mask off the frame on the backdrop and stamp large floral spray into position.
Colour in with Perga Liner pencils, blend the colours to match the backdrop. Add Carpe Diem,
Colour in words and mount on a cool designer paper. This one’s from Antarctica. Done.
These stamps are very, very lovely. They always just look great. And we’ve even got them as Groovi plates too….
