Well it has been raining and windy, hands up who has had this nasty wind( not personally you understand lol ) it reminds me of that storm we had in 1987 anyone remember it? Trees were blowing over and landing on cars etc, crazy time that was , I was just about to find out I was carrying my son that year. What was you all doing?
I have a lovely Visible Image step by step for you to have a go out , a little recap with a bit extra on all we have been learning with the random inking since you all first met me
I used some really gorgeous and special stamps today and I hope you will agree it turned out pretty cool.
Take a look .
Ok so here we go.
Here is how mine looked after slapping the ink on (technical term) lol
Make sure you dry this layer properly with a heat gun and use an anti static pad to as it will stop the embossing powders from clinging to the other inks .I now switch to an archival ink so it gives me a nice crisp images and I am now using the simply divine Music background.
On the last show I showed you how to colour your butterflies really quickly and no fussing, the simple way is to stamp them all how you want them and then while they are still on the paper just rub some colour into them how you want it, Once I did this I added some white dots and coloured in white some pieces to give a little more depth to them, \if you are wondering about the last butterfly in this picture,I took the butterfly stamp and inked it well with the Versafine , I then pressed the music background onto the inked butterfly which of course removed some ink and I stamped that image which is top right and then I took the music background and stamped out the image left there too which is the bottom right image. This is called Kiss stamping and usually used on more solid stamps like silhouettes but why not try it on any and see how it goes.
It definitely was a long project but very worth it I hope you will agree.
The gorgeous stamps used in this project are.
