Thanks for popping in. Monday’s blog is Trees and Flowers, right? So as the Children through the Seasons ODS on Hochanda draws to a close, allow me to shine a little light on something I briefly alluded to this morning in the 8am show.
Here are the 8 stamps sets, A boy and a girl for each season, illustrated by darling Linda Williams, originally as Groovi Plates. Very popular! In the words of Mr Kipling, exceedingly good cakes – err I mean plates.
Available as a huge bundle, or individually.
When you look closely at the individual sets, you will see there are loads of elements – especially superb corners! Let’s hone in on the Autumn Boy. See the little individual leaves?
Let’s focus on the solid ones. We’ll start with the round stamp board shapes, and draw a pencil line around the middle sized one on the largest one.
Now, using archival inks and just the three little full leaf stamps, let’s build a wreath around the pencil line. First and second generation is very cool, and overlapping is welcome!
Let’s add the words before we go on, and then flutter a couple of leaves around them.
Last thing to do is rub out the pencil line and tone the stampboard colour down with one of our stencil brushes loaded with Old Parchment ink.
There you go. Amazing what you can do with three tiny little leaf stamps.
The entire collection is packed full of little surprises like this.
But now it’s time to go for a walk in the snow and get some fresh air.
Love and hugs,
