Hello crafty friends, the STAMPtember® 2023 Collaboration of the day is for Mama Elephant.
The set is called Capy Holidays and is a super cute Crismtas-themed stamp set that includes capibara images.
There is also a combo of stamp and die sets available.
I got the stamp set so I decided to create easy stamped compositions. I also enjoyed colouring and ink blending.
Capibara Xmas Cards
- Arches watercolour paper and Versafine Clair Nocturne ink.
- Kuretake Zigs ( Clean colour – Real brush markers)
- Kuretake Starry Night Watercolours (Gold Splatters)
Note: I have several videos on my YouTube channel showing how to use these markers.
In the video, you can see me applying gold paint from the Kuretake Starry Night Watercolours over the little stars. These paints are permanent when dried so I could apply ink over them without smearing things out.
Using blending brushes, I applied a mix of blue distress inks on the background ( avoiding passing the brush over the coloured images).
Then, I sprayed water and removed the excess water with kitchen paper. I also splattered gold and white acrylic paint allowing each layer of paint to dry before applying the next one.
