I want to share a few cards that I have made using one of my favorite stamp images by Hero Arts, the Hydrangea. Here are some other cards and tag I made using this beautiful stamp:
Pressed flower Garden Tag
Just playing with different papers, inks, color pencils, mixing other stamps and I also broke out my Copic markers. I have had them for a while. It is one of their starter sets.
I stamped a script stamp on ivory paper using Memento Ink "lulu lavender". Used my gold leaf pen on the edges of the cards.
I stamped the image, colored it and did the masking technique using this great background stamp by PSX. A great old school technique.
Here are some sample that I colored and made notes on the back. I used cream and white heavy weight card stock. A few different techniques I found one line.
I had fun and pulled out a few more stamps to work on next.
Some good info for a beginner, like me.
The inks I used:
Memento Dye inks in: tuxedo black for the sentiment.
Distress ink: milled lavender (for the script background and inked the edges)
Versa fine inks (these are great vibrant colors): Imperial purple and Olympia green. On the hydrangea.
I like using the small ink pads when apply the inks right onto the stamps. I have more control.
We had some rain last night and that is always a welcome. Today, sunny, breezy and cool. We start to warm up tomorrow and by mid week we will see some high 90 degree weather.
Thank for commeting on my video. Hope everyone is having a good day. Bye for now.
