Hello there. Hope you've managed to stay warm and dry during these last few days. Here I am with the first of my samples from the last Claritystamp shows on Hochanda.
Using a 7" square of Sheena stamping card I started by masking off a panel. I always find it best to cover the rest of the card with some copy paper. I know from experience that if I don't, it's all too easy to end up with ink splodged somewhere it shouldn't be. Then I stamped my first 2 handbags into position using black archival.
Cover these with post-it masks.
Then stamp and cover up again.
Repeat until you've filled the panel.
And now you have choices: leave the post-it masks in place while you work on the background, or...
Use masking fluid as I did, because I found the post-its kept moving.
I used a mini blending tool to apply mustard seed, picked raspberry and mermaid lagoon distress inks. I then removed the masking fluid and doodled a border on both sides of the panel.
All that was left to do was add my sentiment using the word chain alphabet and run round the edge with a black sharpie pen and mount onto a card blank. Hope you like it. I'll be back soon with another of my samples. Till next time. Xxx
