Christmas Candle (posted by Judith)

Hi Folks, here's a sample incorporating some stamps from the new Gothic Fragments stamp plate, and also a sentiment from one of the new clear stamp sets as well.

I stamped the window stamp with Archival Ink, and then stamped the fragment design with Matte Medium, drying this thoroughly with a heat gun. (I washed my stamp straight away, to remove all traces of the matte medium from the stamp.) I coloured the background with Pumice Stone Distress Ink, as a base, before stamping a small stamp from the Texture Fragments stamp set over the top in three different colours, to create a stone effect. I painted the window area with Distress Stains and a watercolour brush, going over the shaded areas with Distress Markers. The Matte Medium creates a great resist, and looks like a stone panel.

I have added a candle from the Christmas Angel of Light stamp set, and some Crealie flowers and leaves.

These windows, arches and spires are useful for so many different occasions. Keep popping back over the coming days to see what my Team mates have created with these fabulous stamps. Thanks for stopping by, Judith xx

  4. Stunning work Judith! I love how the colours pop against the Pumice Stone DI and the blue 'sky' looks so effective.

  7. The background stonework is very effective indeed - shall have to investigate that resist technique. Your window colouring really sets the scene here in conjunction with the bright poinsettias & leaves. A real festive treat.
