Hello everyone, I hope that you are enjoying the fabulous artwork created by my Design Team mates using this month's Babushka stamp set. I absoloutely love the versatility of this quirky stamp set, and the many possibilities that the stamps offer. I have two cards to share with you today, in very different colour options.
For my first card, I created a wrinkle free Distress background, and stamped the three dolls onto some white card using white embossing powder. I also stamped the face areas again onto some spare card using black ink. I coloured the images using water based markers and a water brush.
I die cut some hexagons, and stamped the flower head from the Breath of Spring stamp set on to the hexagons, again using white embossing powder. I coloured the hexagons using tones of blue Distress Ink, to match the Babushka dolls. I ironed off the white embossing from the hexagons so that I could add faux stitching to the edges. I also added faux stitching around the edge of the background. Finally, I added a sentiment from the Amazing Birthday clear stamp set.
I stamped a window fragment from the Texture Fragments stamp set onto my background, and added gold embossing powder. Before using the heat gun, I stamped the large fragment from the Dusky Damask stamp set using a deep purple ink into two of the corners of the background, and added clear embossing powder. I then heat set the images.
I covered the background with a blend of pink and purple inks, before adding a stencil, and repeated the process, to deepen the colours. I stamped the Babushka images onto a spare piece of card, using gold embossing powder, and coloured them using toning colours. Finally, I added a sentiment from the For Mum clear stamp set.
