Sea creatures on Kraft paper! (posted by Maria)



Hello stamping lovers,

Between shopping, making cards and parcels, I have managed to make some more samples with my favourite Steampunk Sea World and Steampunk Funk Fish stamp sets.





I made the card, on kraft paper, or better on the reverse of a piece of scrapbook paper, it is the same as kraft paper but I liked the colour better. I stamped my sea creatures and the lamps and bubbles from the Punky flowers stamp sheet with Versafine ink, waited till the ink was dry and then used pencils with a lot of pigments to colour these images. I took a white gelly pen for the white accents. Afterwards I took my Wink of Stella golden glitter marker and coloured all over the pencil colours to give everything a golden shine. I took a stamp from the Texture fragments stamp set, and with Versamark and white embossing powder, I created the bubbles background at the borders.
With some embossing enamel powder- shabby white I made the white accents in the background.
For my second project, I made a milk carton that I had seen on other blogs which I thought was such a beautiful package, that I looked at You-tube and found how to make it. I first coloured the card stock as before and then made this package, wouldn't it make a gorgeous present?

I really hope you enjoyed your weekend, and hope you still have the time to make some cards and boxes as Christmas presents, have a lot of fun, and a joyful, happy Christmas to all of you!

Greetings
Maria

  2. Your matting of the panel is so effective & really shows off your use of white. I like the idea of the differently coloured bubble fragments too - it makes me think of frogspawn & adds lovely texture to the whole. The milk carton is a super idea too & I love the way you coloured the shrimp. The pencils are very effective on the kraft substrate.

  7. This kraft card makes a wonderful background and I love the white embossing which gives a shabby chic look. The milk carton is a cleaner finish and everything pops with that blue outline. So unusual and really lovely. x
