Good Morning. Rather than making a card with these beautiful stamps, I chose to make a piece of art to frame and display in my craft room. At the moment the walls are all white after being newly decorated and I've decided they will stay that colour as it feels a lot bigger to work in.
I thought it would be easier to post photos of how I made the background rather than try to explain all the details. This is the first time I've done this so please excuse any mistakes.
I started by stamping the lady from the Serenity Stamp set with Versafine Onyx Black and embossing with clear powder. I coloured her with Alcohol pens and trimmed her out then went on to create the background.
I drew three different sized circles on a piece of copier paper and started by cutting out the smallest and colouring.
Next I cut the second size circle and sponged more ink.
Then I cut the third size and added a slightly darker ink.
I placed the stamped lady onto the sun to see how she fitted with the size of it.
Happy with it so far I made a mask and added a few different green Distress Inks.
When the background colouring was done I stamped the branches and irises with green ink and added a few white pen highlights. Unfortunately I didn't photograph the stamping of the frame as the light was fading. I hope this has given a little insight into the making of this project.
Thank you so much for visiting today, Debbie xx
