Hello everyone, I'm so glad you are here, as I can now show you what I've been up to recently. I was so lucky to be able to play with Sara Naumann's new release of stamps for Paper Artsy. Not just stamps though, two new Stencils as well. All this week Leandra and Mark from Paper Artsy, have been busy behind the scenes organising the release of New Stamps and Paints as well as introducing two new designers. I'd pull up a chair and make a cup of tea, as there are quite a few photos to share.
I made 6 samples in total here is the first.
Here are the steps I took
I watered down Brown Shed and gave a wash over the card. Then with London Night, I stamped some script randomly and allowing the paint to fade out before picking up more. I stamped both leaves from the new plates some with Tinned Peas and the others with Space Cadette.
I stamped the big leaves with Brown Shed and then cut it out. I also used Space Cadette on the torn edges to give a more distressed look.
The tag itself was painted with Space Cadette and Brown Shed. Once it was all assembled I added some pearls here and there. I stamped the ship onto shrink plastic and cut round it before shrinking. This I added to a ribbon to finish.
The next Tag had far less elements.
Using the the leaf Stencil I created a background using Space Cadette and and Tinned Peas. Once dry, I used a brayer and Nougat to knock it back (learned this from Leandra) as I didn't want it too dark. On top of this I added some stems from the other stencil in London Night.
Next a couple of 4x4 cards
On the one above I used a page from Chatworth a 12x12 pad from Paper Artsy to act as a Mat.
Using a similar technique as before I created the background matted and layered the card.
And lastly a 5x7 landscape card
Here is a video of Sara's samples and those of my teammates, I hope you enjoy!
Please check out each night on the Paper Artsy Blog for all the new stamps and paints being released this week.
Saying goodbye now, take care everyone and I'll see you all soon. Hugs Debs.
