Stamp Colouring new...
Well what a busy few days it was on the blog don't forget to check the list below to see if you were a winner! Back to today and as promised a few of the Stamps to Die for that match the stunning new die collection form Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions. I decided to start with a reminder of summer as it seems so grey at the moment!
I stamped the strawberry patch stamp to die for in black moment ink onto bright white foundation card. I then coloured it with Graphmaster pens in Reds 10, 11, 15 and orange 22.
I cut the stamped image out using the matching Cape Verde die set and shadowed a die cut in red at the top and bottom by cutting it in half.
To make up the card I cut the detail die from the Cape Verde die set into a piece of bright white twice overlapping them slightly. I cut a final version in the centre so that it overlaps the other two. This is not that visible in the card however bit creates a really nice frame on either side of the stamped image. I cut the next die in the set along with the deal die in white twice and added these, flat mounted, in the centre of the filigree sections .
Next I added this to a piece of ruby foundation card and matted on black ( to balance the stamping in black) and a larger frame of white, red and black. To finish I surrounded opposing corners of the card with cosmic pearl 3D Pearl Accents from cosmic shimmer and added smaller dots on the appropriate places on the die cuts finally adding a heart charm and a messy bow of red and off-white.
Back tomorrow with another stamped and coloured image!
