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! (more…)
To complement yesterday’s it’s a boy card – here is one for the girls. I’ve used the same stamp and technique again – Woodware Noah’s Ark stamp with watercolour pencils.
I’ve put it together with some soft pink pastel tartan and baby papers to match the soft baby theme. I have again kept with a monochrome colour theme with my pencils. I was quite pleased with the effect. (more…)
Continuing with the Baby card theme this week. This lovely stamp is from Woodware – Noah’s Ark. I have stamped my design in Jet Black Archival Ink and coloured the image using watercolour pencils. It is nice to work in just one colour tone and you can get quite a lot of detail with just one or two pencils.
I’ve mounted it onto a pretty gingham paper and then onto a congratulations paper. The buttons with a knot tied from Baker’s Twine just adds a nice bit of detail. The It’s a Boy stamp is one from my stash.
If you would like to make this card – it will feature in a workshop on Monday 27th October 6-8pm for £15. You will learn how to get the shading using watercolour pencils as part of the workshop, or you can choose to colour with ProMarkers instead.
Come back tomorrow for a variation on a theme featuring the baby girl card.
Do go and visit the blog of Rocky Crafter today – she has created a fabulous project using one of our wooden money boxes – well worth a view!
Today’s project was a card order I made a little while back. The brief was to create a card for someone leaving work to have twins – they already knew one was a boy, one a girl so I wanted to reflect that in the card.
I’ve used this stamp many times for baby cards – it is a Joanna Sheen Messy Rabbit design.
I stamped both my bunnies and coloured them with Promarkers so I had one blue, one pink.
I rummaged through my paper stash and found that I had the same design baby paper in both pink and in blue, which was ideal as I could carry the pattern in both halves of the card. (more…)
