Thanks for popping in. Hope you enjoyed the TV show and the SHAC Shac today. The sales certainly reflected interest in the backdrop stamps and the Clarity Characters!! It’s always heartening when it works. Thank you.
Looking through my thousands of project photos yesterday, I found a perfect combination of Clarity Character Annabel used in combination with one of our Clarity Classics, which you may even recall from the early SHAC Shac doodle days: Our Tall Trees (which came with a whole bunch of pointillism stamps) . Comes with mask too, of course.
So. A few phone calls later, and the Tall Trees with the Texture Stamps, (which we used to call our pointillism set), is revamped, restyled – and back on the website – with a super new price.
Here’s a card from way back when, highlighting the trees and the lovely girl. There’s a simple sequence:
- Stamp her with a black dye-based ink onto A5 Claritycard
- Cover her up with an Annabel Mask and stamp the tall trees into place
- Remove the mask and replace it on the wax paper it came on
- Colour in Annabel with Promarkers or any other alcohol pens.
- Next, let’s take a closer look at the background. Loads of dots from the Texture stamps.
- Mask Annabel again, then colour in the Tall Trees with the texture stamps.
Use the tree masks to isolate areas, then use the texture stamps to colour in the trees, using the 3 sizes of pointillism stamps and just 2 colours – yellow and teal dye based ink – to create shade. These texture stamps are awesome – and so much better than before! For a start, they all come as separate stamps. Simply peel and stick on a mount.
Now let’s do the landscape in the background. With the trees covered up with their masks, add a moon mask, and with a torn piece of paperand make-up sponge, add the sky, hills and grass. A blend of yellow and teal yields all these variations! Yep. 2 ink pads….the Blending Mat helps for mixing.
Doodle a black and white border around the treescape using a black Micron pen to finish. The white Posca Pens would work brilliantly on this Claritycard too.
Tomorrow, I will post another step by step project which I found, using this Tall Tree Stamp. I’d forgotten how great it is ! Get yours today! Fresh out of the new stamp oven!
