CARD - New Crocus stamp #isaCstamps
Pour la version en français, je vous donne rendez-vous sur le blog de Toutencolle.
Another new stamp tonight I designed for Toutencolle again. A simple crocus, yet so versatile as you will see in the blog posts and videos to come in the next couple of weeks.
Here's the step-by-step for the first card. I used that Dusty Blue paper again (Did I mention I really like it? Yes I did? well, I say it again... I really like those papers 😀)
First of all, stamp the crocuses on different pattern papers. This is to get different petals
Then (yup you guessed it), cut out the petals in order to "build up" the flower
On a separate papers, stamp the "Manuscrit fin" and ink up the edges of the papers
Glue de crocuses, and add the petals with 3D foam squares to give some dimension
Here's a different view
My base card (not shown here) is 15x15 cm
Light papers is 14.5 x 14.5 cm
The blue one is 14 x 14 cm
The two little "cards" are from the papers (cut them out, inked the edges)
Matted everything on black paper
Paint the words with white paint.
Several coats are needed to really make it white
Next paint the little watering can in white, then stamp "Nuages de pointillés" using grey Archival Ink
Ink up the edges
I added a little butterfly, and added Glossy Accent to the petals as well as the centre of the butterfly
Added a touch of colour with Faber Castell Polychromos
And here you have it
With the envelope
Details of the "Glossied" petals
Details of the "Glossied" butterfly
Little Glossy Accent details added to the watering can too for the "water"
Here you go
Hope you enjoyed
Would love to know what you think
See you soon
