Hello there, Welcome to my blog! Today I’m joining the day #2 of a Blog Hop – Giveaway from Honey Bee Stamps to celebrate “Cheerful Love” a new stamps and dies release.
Here is a closer look to the stamp artwork
|Feelin’ Foxy | 4×4 Stamp Set $9.95|
So this time I had to work with digital images as I’m at the other side of the pound and the stamps didn’t arrive on time. I struggled a wee bit with that so I decided to print the images and I use a lightbox and a pencil to trace them on watercolour paper. I trace one fox first and then the other net to him. I didn’t apply pressure on the pencil.
Once I got the images on the watercolour paper I added colours using the new Nuvo watercolour pencils together with Derwent watercolour pencils.
When I finished adding colours to the images I applied Pistachio and broken china distress Oxide inks at the background using a blending tool. No masking was required.
To finish I splattered broken china ink all over the background.
I also traced on printer paper, some of the butterflies images from the stamp set , I added colours, trimmed them with scissors and I glued them on the panel.
I stamped the sentiment using the Tim Holtz Platform and Black Simon Says Stamp Ink and using my sewing machine I create a stitched pattern at the edge of the panel.
