Clearly Besotted March Release Day!
But whilst you wait for the hours to pass- here’s a couple of last projects. The first using the ‘Best Easter’ set. Because these guys are balloons, this set is useful waaay past Easter. In fact, once you see the sentiment, the ‘Have the Best’ is separate so you could easily put in ‘Birthday’ etc so it becomes a superbly versatile set.
The little balloons were stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and then coloured in with Prismacolor pencils. I’m still getting used to these pencils, but they are easy to use, albeit they need a little more working time to get shading etc. I think for the soft textural look they give, it’s worth the extra time.
The balloons are actually attached to acetate and the strings glued both behind the balloons and on top of the front of the card. You’ve probably gathered that I like acetate a LOT!
Anyway! The second sample is a mix-up of ‘From All of Us’ and a brilliantly useful sentiment set called ‘So To Speak II’. I’ve used the stamps to create a pseudo brick wall and used it as a background to add the flowers to.
It makes more of a feature of the sentiment in a different way. Yes, forgive the slightly ‘leaked’ colouring. It was late…what can I say?! No excuses huh!!
The flowers are stunning stamps aren’t they!
