Thanks for drooping in.
Well, it beats pooping in last week.
I was having a clear out, and came across a set of stamps which I thought were brilliant and clever when Jim and I designed them:
The Alphabet Animals
So dust them off and get them out, I say!
There are lots of them, from
My personal favourite is the Elephant
Each animal comes as lineart AND the fill.
I am going to use both parts today.
Told you mine were old!
We need some foliage , too, so here’s
Stamp the branch on an A6 piece of Theuva card
Stamp the outline elephant into place underneath.
Now comes the clever bit.
Ink up the fill Elephant with Butterscotch Adirondack,
or Mustard Seed Distress ink pad,
screw up a piece of copy paper and stamp the inky stamp onto the paper.
Then position over the lineart and fill.
Do this a couple of times. I used the Watering Can grey too.
Time to add yellow to the background.
Load a Stencil Brush with yellow ink from the same ink pad,
and start dusting the edges.
Lay a piece of copy paper underneath the Elephant’s feet
and add yellow and grey to the ground with brushes.
Colour in the Flowers with Spectrum Noir pencils.
The Essential Tin is a good starting place.
But we do have a great deal on all 5...
Remember from one of our brilliant Word Chains sits perfectly
underneath. Word Chain No. 5 it is.
Quite apt I guess....
Nearly done. Edges last.
Using a Clarity Blending Mat and a Ranger mini blending tool,
let’s work shade into the edges.
See the difference?
Left done. Right not.
We have them back in stock,
