Hello everyone! It's Day 5 of Craftin Desert Divas August Release Sneak Peek Week.
And I am super happy to share with you one more of my illustrations that became a stamp (set? nope... the whole background stamp! Yaaay!)
Here is my card with new LEAFY BACKGROUND stamp.
Now, let's get into making a bit. To start with I must say that I wanted the design to be simple and embossed. So I got out my embossing powder & heating tool (that I don't use too often).
I then stamped the image on the watercolor card stock (as I will be dealing with water) using VersaMark ink and stamping tool (the image is huge, so it's much easier to use the tool).
After that I put white powder on top and melted it.
For the coloring I decided to use Arteza Real Brush pens. Blues and greens for this time.
I started my coloring from the top of the image and used the space "inside" the leaves leaving the white border around (there's space between leaves, one can play with coloring/shading).
Using water and small brush for perfect shading.
For the sentiments I picked the ones from the YOU stamp set (July Release).
Did the embossing on the black card stock with white powder and VersaFine ink.
At the very last moment I decide to add something extra to the card. So I got out the circle die and ran the piece through the cutting machine. Then I attached all the parts together using foam tape. I decide to put inside part lower than the whole part. Also cut out the YOU sentiment and attached everything to the main part of the card. And there I was done!
Here's one more look at the finished card.
I love it! ^_^ Hope you too. And see you soon with more inspiration!
