I have been making some cards with the February Sketchy Doodle stamps from Chocolate Baroque which are playful and fun.
This one features a resist background using Tangled Fragments and some stickles to liven up the flower.
A super simple card with a hand drawn stem and more glitter.
This one ended up looking a bit busy. I made a background by stamping various flower shapes with different shades of Archival ink and after it was all assembled, I wished I’d used something more subtle.
This one is on watercolour paper, coloured with a wash of acrylic paint in the background and Derwent ColourSoft pencils for the detail. The dragonfly is cut from another resist background, this time with Harlequin Fragments.
I have stamped onto a background made with Dylusions sprays on watercolour paper. I did stamp some of the smaller decorative stamps onto the background, but my colour choices were so subtle, you can hardly see them. I’ve coloured the image with ColourSoft pencils again and the white stamping around the edge is the new Ranger Glacier White pigment inkpad.
And jumping backwards to January’s stamp releases, here’s a little tag made with the rose from the Punky Hearts stamp set.
The background is acrylic paint and Distress Stains and features the North Star Crafter’s Workshop Template. The rose is actually stamped on a label, coloured with stains and markers and cut out. I added a grey shadow around it with a copic marker.
I hope these have inspired you to dig out your stamps and have a play this weekend. I’ll be busy moving furniture around, but hope to get some quality studio time tomorrow.
