Woodware Noah's Ark Stamp

Back again with the Noah’s Ark stamp from Woodware.

Today I have worked with watercolour paints.  I was clearing out a cupboard at home and stumbled across the watercolour palette I had when I was studying art for A Level (many years ago!).  It’s been such a long time since I have worked in ordinary watercolour paint and I thought that this stamp was ideal to practice my skills!  Woodware Noah's Ark Stamp

The biggest challenge on this one was how many brown shades I can create – that’s the only down side to having lots of animals in one design!  I mixed in yellow tones with some, pink tones with others and black and blue tones too.  It was just a matter of getting a bit of variety so they didn’t all look the same.

I enjoyed painting with my watercolours, so you may well see them featured a bit more regularly from now on!

I picked out the Memory Box Big Splash border die to create the side swirls (the watery theme seemed appropriate).  I kep the colours neutral to give the option of being a general baby or birthday card for a little one.  The only bit I wasn’t sure of that I may have done differently in hindsight was the block end to the die – I dressed them up with rhinestones, but wasn’t sure whether I should have trimmed them off?

What do you think?

Back with something different tomorrow.

happy crafting
