Thank you to everyone for the kind comments on my samples for the launch of Darcy Wilkinson’s new stamps & stencils for PaperArtsy, it’s been an exciting two days. I want to do some blog posts on a few of my samples that I particularly like, so today I’m focusing on some of the tags.
I love this tall flower from EDY17 & used it a lot……………..
I glued crumpled tissue on to a tag & painted it with layers of Baltic Blue, Smurf & China Fresco paints…………..
Stamped the circles from EDY17 with blue inks & blended some Baltic Blue Fresco paint in the centres of the darker circles……
I stamped the large flower twice on to Smoothy card, painted the centre with Tango & Cherry Red, cut it out & layered it on to the second flower. The smaller flowers from EDY17 were stamped with embossing ink directly onto the tag, heat set with white embossing powder & painted with Cherry Red Fresco………….
I think I need to use kraft card more often as a substrate, I was surprised by how well the stencilling looked on this tag…………
I used the new PA stencil PS030 with Snowflake, Baltic Blue & Smurf Frescos………..
The flowers are from EDY18 & EDY 19, painted with Tango & Cherry Red…………….
This was the first tag I made. I looked at the wings on set EDY17 & saw a pair of hands. The background is Cherry Red & Tango Frescos, blended with a damp baby wipe & stencilling with Snowflake through PS001. The butterfly from EDY19 & the ‘hands’ were painted with Cherry Red, Tango & China Frescos………..
A list of stockists of Darcy’s stamps & stencils can be found HERE.
Leandra did a fab demo on Periscope, using some of Darcy’s stamps & you can watch the replay HERE.
Thanks for looking.
