Firstly I would like to thank all my wonderful Blog family for the fantastic comments and reception of my new brand! Its been truly overwhelming If you have emailed me I will reply however I am struggling through them all at the moment I will get to you as soon as I can promise!
I thought I should start sharing some of the techniques that are possible with my new Media Plates and stamps so I thought I woulds share this Christmas card that looks complex but is really simple to produce! The technique used is with the oval media plate and the resist technique ( there is a you tube video for this however I am waiting for it to upload!)
I stared by adding the inks to the media plate in the press to impress stamp tool. I then went over this with a brayer to soften the colours ( all of this is explained in the youtube video for basic techniques available HERE ) Next I used the snowflake stamp from the Winter Trees set and inked it with perfect medium then I stamped this first onto the media plate to remove the ink and secondly onto the card to stamp the coloured snowflakes. Using this technique i removed the ink form the plate and was able to stamp multicoloured snowflakes around the card.
I then stamped the media plate onto the card ( by closing the lid of the press to impress) I added the tree stamp onto the lid and stamped this followed by the pot.
Finally I added more of the snowflakes and the sentiment. A mat of blue card and just add this to an 8x8" card blank and finished.
A card that looks like it takes hours of shading, an oval reverse snowflake stamp and lots of hard work. However with the stamp press and the media plate it takes 5 minutes!
Dont forget if you want a sneak peak of the orange before Tuesday's Hochanda shows then I will be at Crafting Live in Doncaster all day!
