8 X 8 inch card blank (white stamping card), copy paper to make masks
Distress Inkpad (Tumbled Glass), Multi coloured dye based inkpad (blues & purples)
Glitter pens (Sakura Gel – blue, purple) and sparkle pens (Spectrum Noir – teal, clear)
Clouds stencil (Sheena Douglass)
How it was done:
I first stamped Katya 4 times onto the corners of the card, leaving ink off the bottom portion of the stamp. I chose Tumbled Glass Distress Ink to get a pale effect.
I cut a circle mask from copier paper. Covering the central section I then applied Distress Ink through the cloud stencil, lightly using a sponge. I coloured Katya’s headdress with glitter and sparkle pens using a water brush to get some shading.
I edged the card with Distress Ink and stamped the sentiment around the border.
Using the other part of my paper mask I covered the background leaving just the central opening to work though. I stamped and cut out the buildings from copier paper to make more masks. I first stamped the foreground image (using multi coloured ink), then covered it with the mask before stamping the next building behind. Finally I covered both foreground images and stamped the silhouette palace at the back.
I used the cloud stencil again to add detail to the sky area. I then coloured the images picking up ink from my mat with a water brush.
Finally I added a little spatter by picking up watered down ink and sparkle pen from my mat onto an old toothbrush.
Good evening. Woohoo – Lesley Wharton is now live on Hochanda with a ‘Pick of the Day’ from Chocolate Baroque. Something old, along with something very new, and all very different.
Here are some of my projects using the Babushka stamp set. The Babushka set was originally released last year – so I made these a while ago. This set is so much fun and really different. I also love the Russian buildings that are included too – great for scene building.
This set mixes and matches so well with the brand new Silhouette Palaces stamps and stencils.
You must see the other new stamps too. Katya is gorgeous, the Russian Floral and Exquisite Egg stamps are stunners, and the Crackle Background is so versatile. I will share more of my projects and tutorials using all of these throughout the month.
Note: initially Babushka, along with the new stamps and stencils released today, are all exclusive to Hochanda
The first show has just started (Thurs 8pm) with more shows tomorrow – Sky 663, Freeview 85 and Freesat 817 (or watch online – live or on catch up)
I combined the Babushka with the Indian Textiles (silhouette buildings in the background) stamp set to create this one. The brand new Silhouette Palaces stamps or stencils could be used in the same way.
I combined the Babushka set with the Fountain Scene stamp to create this one.
I created masks for the buildings by stamping onto copy paper and cutting them out. The buildings were stamped with Versafine, covered with the masks and I then stamped with the background silhouette buildings with Distress Ink.
The images were coloured with watercolour pens. Some colour was applied directly, and some by picking up colour from a pallet using a damp brush. I then finished with touches of sparkle pen and glitter glue.
