Lovely Babushka (by Anne)

Good morning. I have been playing with the new Babushkastamp set. This set is so much fun and really different. I also love the Russian buildings that are included too – great for scene building.


  • Babushka and Indian Textiles stamp sets
  • C6 shaped card and white stamping card
  • Inkpads: Distress Ink (Broken China) and Versafine (Onyx Black)
  • Watercolour pens (Spectrum Aqua)
  • Glitter marker (gold), black marker and gold glitter glue
  • 3D glue gel


How it was done:

I created masks for the buildings by stamping onto copy paper and cutting them out. The buildings were stamped with Versafine, covered with the masks and I then stamped with the background silhouette buildings with Distress Ink.

The images were coloured with watercolour pens. Some colour was applied directly, and some by picking up colour from a pallet using a damp brush. I then finished with touches of sparkle pen and glitter glue.

Happy Friday - Hugs, Anne xxx
