This week I've made simple but striking
pictures. They can be used as cards or
wall art. I've used one for a card and
two ready for frames. I'd got the idea
from a painted canvas art seen a long time
ago on an Internet search and it stuck
with me. I knew I wanted to take a colouring
in pattern approach and when looking
through the fabulous range of Impression
Obsession stamps the light bulb went ping,
on not off.
To make something like this,
Trim white card to size you want. Stamp
the Cover A Card stamps as shown. If
repeat stamping like I did don't worry if
the join isn't perfect, just go in with
a fine pen and join up the stamped background lines.
Next using the stamps and masks to
stamp the air balloon image right over
the background stamp.
Using the stencil, draw around the images.
If you really want to you could mask
these images before stamping the background.
However I didn't as I was happy if any lines
did show through. But they didn't.
Next up colour the images you want as
silhouettes with black pencil, then black
alcohol marker, then go over again with
black pencil and finish by rubbing over with
a paper stump. This will leave a dense
Then colour in the background with colours.
I coloured first with pen then over again
with pencils. Doing this really made
the background bright and vibrant.
Trim if necessary and mount onto white and
then black card or onto a white A5 card blank.
