Good morning. I hope everything is good and crafty today. I've certainly been enjoying the festive season with family and friends. I have also managed to enjoy a few hours play time with ink and stamps.
These new stamps definitely help to bring a little serenity while working with them, the images are so beautiful.
I started with a large tag shape and stamped the serene lady with Memento Onyx Black which allowed me to colour with alcohol pens. I restricted myself to flesh colours as I wanted to add lots of colour to the background. Before colouring the background I cut a mask of the stamp and laid over the image. For the background I used Mown Lawn, Tumbled Glass and Ripe Persimmon distress ink then spritzed with a little water. I dried with a heat tool and stamped the flowers and blossom with French Ultramarine archival ink. I mounted onto black and found a piece of orange card and trimmed them to the shape of the tag.
Many thanks for visiting and I wish you a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year. Debbie
