Hello Hive members,
Elisa here from the design team with a special blog post today.
Last year I was lucky enough to teach a few classes for Colour Blast at the Brisbane Expo using a few stamp sets I designed especially for the classes.
We have a few sets left over and now Paige has put them up for sale on the website and I get to show you what you can do with these beauties!
Here are a couple of mixed media cards that I made with both sets of stamps. Perfect fit for the front of a standard size card. Easy to use and add colour to as well!
With the Serendipity stamp set, I stamped with embossing ink pad and then used Dusty Charcoal Colour Embossing Powder and heat set with a heat gun. I then coloured the butterfly using Colour Artist Inks in Mermaid, Slipper and Citrus using a thin round paint brush, washing between colours.
With this card, I started by tearing a few strips of old book or music paper and layering them on the bottom of the card. Then used Colour Artists Inks in Citrus, Barley, Cranberry, Spice, Cider, Soot and Mermaid to add my sunset and grassed area. Once your background is complete, dry completely and then Stamp your City Lights stamp over the top using a black archival ink pad. You can also heat emboss using the Dusty Charcoal Colour Embossing Powder.
Here is another photo of the Serendipity Stamp Set, used on two card fronts, one heat embossed and hand coloured in and the other heat embossed using Snow White Colour Embossing Powder and then a colour wash applied over the top using Colour Artist Inks.
The embossing powder makes for a great resist and watercolour wash technique.
Here are the two stamp sets I designed, perfect for cards, art journalling and scrapbooking!!
What else can you make with these stamp sets and Colour Artist Inks I hear you say???
Here are a few projects I created using the stamp sets.
Well that's it from me today,
make sure you stop by the store for a peek at all the awesome products we have available.
Til next time,
