Hello everyone, I have a couple of projects from last month's TV shows to share with you today. My projects feature a selection of the Spring stamps, using a mixture of techniques, so hopefully I can give you lots of inspiration in just a few minutes!
For my first project, I created a background using Pan Pastels on a piece of smooth white card. I used shades of yellow and orange and added a hint of Plum Pan Pastel around the edges. Using Versamark Ink, I stamped the butterfly flourish image randomly over the background, and dusted Pan Pastels over the top to complete the background.
I die cut a rectangular panel and stamped the two butterflies from the butterfly flourish image onto the panel before masking them. I then stamped the lovely large flower image from the Breath of Spring stamp set, and also masked this image. I added Pan Pastels, using a selection of yellow and orange colours to create an ombre
background, starting with the lightest colour at the top, graduating
down to the darkest colour at the bottom. I removed the masks, and coloured the images with pencils, before adhering both panels to a large white card blank.
Spring Foliage stamp set. I edged the tag with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink, and stamped the pretty bird image from the Spring Bird Crocus stamp set onto the tag. I added a sentiment from the Glorious Spring stamp set. I coloured the images with pencils, as before. To get my ribbon to match perfectly, I took some pale cream ribbon, and ran it through some Victorian Velvet Distress Ink and water that I had placed onto my craft mat. I simply dried the ribbon with my heat gun, and ironed it on a low setting.
