Tonight sees the launch of more PaperArtsy stamps, this time designed by the wonderful Darcy Wilkinson.
To view Darcy’s new stamp designs, which have a Christmas theme, along with samples by all her wingmen then please visit the PaperArtsy Blog post HERE.
I was lucky enough to be asked to be a wingman, having the fun of playing with the new stamps.
Let me whizz through the samples I made with both stamp sets all of which were made to the stipulated colour palette.
Sample No. 1Stamping with paint for the background design with the same colour sprayed onto the cardbase.A little hanging sentiment clustered with some bits and pieces.Sample No. 2 – a Christmas bauble
Fresco Metallic Glaze was sprayed onto the painted background of the wooden bauble before layering up the stamped poinsettia.Sample No. 3 Sample No. 4
Nearly all my samples feature PaperArtsy Fresco Metallic Glaze, particularly this card. You can see it reacting with the light. Metallic Glaze is lovely made into a spray.I stamped one of the baubles forming a cluster of embellishments to add a little bit of interest to this corner of the card.
Sample No. 5 Working with the designated colours to create splatters on the cardbase and to paint cardstock which I used as my stamping surface for the beautiful reindeer. The strip down the side was a piece of cardstock I had half prepared last Christmas with a snowflake stencil and iridescent texture paste so all I had to do was swipe on one of the designated paint colours, the iridescent paste creates a lovely resist effect. Sample No. 6 The paints diluted to create a soft, watery background onto which I splattered more paint and even more Metallic Glaze. The reindeer was stamped onto cardstock which again was painted with Metallic Glaze applied as a wash prior to stamping. The sentiment was stamped onto the same surface and cut into word tiles.White Fire Treasure Gold was applied here and there, simply swiped on with my fingertips.Thank You to Darcy for having me be one of her wingmen, it was a pleasure.
