Guest designing is always a honour to me, and I want to thank Susanne for this chance to feature her beautiful stamps!
Today a series of five cards... with this beautiful set from Rubberdance; the Doodle Flowers set.
I totally went for the images, and 'forgot' to use the monthly color for September.
ENJOY.. I added some details through the post.
Starting with a colorful watercolored background is always a good start.
I chose to stamp right onto the background, and not fussycut the main images. I used Versafine black and heat embossed it in clear.
Masking the main image and stamp in the background with the leaf images, using a stamping platform. This way I could add some watered down white Fresco acrylic paint to the images, and restamp again after the paint had dried.
For the final touch I added color to the main images with Twinkling H2O watercolors and added some white to the images with a white acrylic marker and a gelpen.
Maybe you've seen these creations in the new release:
... just so I can share some details on them, I chose to make a blogpost of it as well.
The above images are the scans for the new release...
now for the photographs..
"A Work of Art" (script stamp) on a gelli print with Distress Oxides.
Decoloring within the images with bleach, and some white accents to finish it off ; that's all there is to it. A TIP: when using bleach, make sure to stamp and heat emboss in clear, so the stamped image won't 'fade or change color' from the bleach.
The stencil I've used in the background is one of my favorite stencils from Magenta: you will certainly see it being used in future blogposts! Again: decoloring within the images with bleach, and some white accents to finish it off.
