Pearing Up….

Hi Everyone

Over at Simon Says Stamp it is the turn of Summer Fruits.  I have to say these stamps from INKADINKADO,  I haven’t got out in e-o-n-s.

Firstly I got out my water colour pens and brushed over the stamps, houghed (technical term for strong breath on stamp technique!) and stamped the pear out.  I then masked it off and brushed it in different tones then stamped it again.  I stamped out on a separate white card another pear and cut this out, 3Ding it onto the others. I did start with a strawberry but didn’t like the effect so I changed it!  I then added a few branches for effect!

I then cut out a spellbinder Opulent Oval in copy paper and used the cut out as an appeture. I made 2 x masks for the pears.  I then used a word stamp inked up in versamark then heat set with WOW Bright White embossing powder for the background.

I then inked the edges in Spiced Marmalade, Tea Dye and Black Soot distress inks and did a wash of tea dye and water in the background.  I then used kitchen roll to buff off the excess ink and bring out the white embossing again.

Take care, speak soon….Sue.
