Kim Moody Latest Release

Hello everyone, we have a real treat for you today, a compilation post, sharing some projects made for recent TV shows on Hochanda featuring the newest Kim Moody stamps. Kim created these fabulous houses as a set that could be put together as a street, or equally work brilliantly as stand alone images. He has also drawn some smaller add on images which are so useful for creating scenes and completing your artwork. We hope that you will enjoy what we have to share with you today, including Kim's own artwork, so grab a cuppa, and take a look.

The Posh House is sure to make you smile, it really is very delapidated, with its crumbling plaster, exposed brickwork, and an air of genteel neglect. It is calling out to be fixed up, and its name suggests that it feels superior to its neighbours who are in far better shape!

Kim has used coloured pencils and added some of the smaller images that can be found on the stamp plates to complete his project.

I have used Distress Oxides for my backgrounds, and added a large tree image from the Trees a Crowd stamp set to finish the card. The sentiment is also one from Kim's stamp plates, something new this time.

Brenda has used Distress Oxides for the background, adding texture paste through a stencil. She has used white embossing on black card for the stamping.

For the next card she has used Pan Pastels for a lovely soft effect, adding foliage from some of our Chocolate Baroque stamp sets using Versafine Clair Ink, and added detail with colouring pencils. The bees and foxgloves are from the Honey Bee stamp set.

Our House is a super tall skinny house, great for creating terraces, or again, as a stand alone house. The little cat looking up at the pie in the open window, the milk bottles, and the bird on the roof, are all great little details. You can have so much fun choosing your own colour schemes for these houses. Kim has coloured his artwork with pencils, adding a cheery sunburst behind the house, and more of the little images that come with the larger images on the stamp sheets.

I used an acrylic tag, stamped with Archival Ink and painted the image with acrylic paints. I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of patterned paper and then attached it to back of the tag with matte medium.

Lesley has used an MDF tag and stamed the image with Versafine Ink before adding clear embossing powder. She coloured the image with VersaMagic chalk inks, and added a touch of white Koh-I-Noor paint as a highlight.

I stamped and masked the house, created a wash of colour over the background with Distress Inks. I added a woodland using trees from Trees a Crowd, and then added the little removal van. I coloured the images with pencils.

Brenda has used Distress Inks both to paint and add a stencil on this card. The brick stencil makes a perfect partner to the house image.

Gran's House is full of character with the beams and the wonky handrail on the steps. The cracked plaster on the walls and the lovely old door simply add to the quirky nature of the house. Kim has used pencils to colour his artwork, the multicoloured bricks look fabulous, don't they?

I chose kraft card and white embossing to create my card. I added trees from the Trees a Crowd stamp set, omitting the trunk from one of them to make it look like a bush instead. I used a Versamark pen to complete the landscape, and added the embossing powder over the top. I coloured the images with Koh-I-Noor paints.

Brenda has created a marbled background, then stamped the image onto a piece of book paper. She has added details with pencils.

She has used a combination of Distress Inks and Distress Oxide Inks to create this next project.

The Shop is asuch a detailed image, every time you look, there is something else to see. Check out the little mouse underneath the boxes, and Kim's signature bird on the roof. You can have so much fun planning which colours to use for all of the fruit and vegetables. Kim has coloured his project using Koh-I-Noor watercolours.

Brenda has used Pan Pastels in the background of this first example, and Koh-I-Noor watercolours to paint the image.
She has used Distress Inks and colouring pencils to create this lovely card, giving a more masculine feel with kraft card elements.

 Simple red stamping on this next card using Versafine Clair ink has created a very striking card.

Pan Pastels and Versafine Clair create a real party mood on this rainbow coloured card.

Talking of parties, I have used some of the little words to create a set of party invitations by stamping onto Gelli plate backgrounds. These were really quick and easy, and made in just a couple of minutes. I added a faux stitched border with a fine liner pen.

Now finally, we have a series of cards showing how you can combine the images together, Kim has called this one 'Our House in the Middle'. He has coloured this one with pencils.

I used Masking Tissue to mask The Shop, and Posh House so that I could stamp the other two houses afterwards. I then masked all of the houses to add a Pan Pastel background and trees from Trees a Crowd in first and second generation stamping. I coloured the images with pencils.

 Brenda has used Distress Inks and Koh-I Noor paints for this pretty pastel version.

Brushos, Koh-I-Noor paints and white embossing powder have been used for her dramatic Hallowe'en card.
Finally Distress Inks and colouring pencils complete this monochrome card. The ovals giving a snapshot view of each image, such a clever idea, like vintage photographs.

Lesley has used some paper piecing to add a spot of colour to her card. She stamped the image and cut sections out, then added a touch of extra colour with Koh-I-Noor paints.

Well that brings our post to a close. We really hope that you have been inspired by our projects, and will check out the Kim Moody section of the website for the new stamps. You can also see the older stamp sets there which will work really well with these new sets.
