Thanks for stopping by.
We're soaking in the sun at 7,000 feet here in New Mexico.
The snow is slowly melting, but it was still -9c last night!
Here's a demo I did on US TV this week. The new Createandcraft Television channel can be found on DISH221 , DirectTV85/222. And ROKU.
Or you can go to their US website, createandcraft.com and they will tell you times and options.
Now we need a set of the Landscape Masks. I have to say, this set really is a must have.
Add a moon and some mountains, and dust in a few clouds, using a Clarity Stencil brush and Stonewashed Adirondack.
Build up the depth of colour slowly,
Time to add a few little critters....I think a Coffee Archival Ink Pad would be best here.
Just remove the stencil and stamp in your favourite animals from the Woodland Animals Collection.
So here's the stencil. It comes with both parts. In fact, all three woodland scene stencils do.
Here they are:
And here are the unmounted animals. Check out our new packaging for 2015! The stamps now come on a really sturdy acetate, and are covered by a thinner film, which is a light inhibitor, so your stamps won't yellow under it. We do try, we really do!
Anyway, back to the card. A little matting and layering,
And we have a lovely, atmospheric scene. I love these stencils; I love how they create a window into a scene.
If you want to make the animal images opaque, then go over the shapes with a colouring pencil.
I like them translucent.
The sun is pouring in the window. i think it's time to go for a walk.
See you tomorrow, for another New Mexico chat!
