Penny Black: Watercolor Designed Stamps

Written by lisascreativeniche. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects), Uncategorized

Hi!  It is Lisa here today and I have a floral card to share with you.  I am sure many of you have seen the Penny Black stamps that resemble watercolored images once they are stamped, and I find them to be terrific!  The specific stamp that I have used for today’s project is called Magnolia Rhapsody, while this specific set is on back order there are many of the newest release sets that give the same results.

To create my card I started by stamping the Magnolia image with various Tombow Dual Brush Markers.  When you are wanting to add multiple layers of colors to one image I highly recommend using a MISTI.  This will save you so much time and just make everything easier!  After I had all of my colors added I used the blender pen that came in my Tombow Marker Set to blend the colors together, and to take away any splotchy areas.  You could also use a paintbrush and clean water for blending.

Next, I added my sentiment from the Mama Elephant Wishing You Stamp Set with Lawn Fawn ink in Deep Sea.  I then went around the borders of the card with Distress Ink in Broken China, and finished the card off with clear sequins.

I hope you are joining us in our latest challenge, as well as make sure you get entered into our latest giveaway!

Happy Crafting!

Galaxy Background

Written by Holly Endress. Posted in Uncategorized

Hi everyone.. It’s Holly here today and I have a new video tutorial on creating a Galaxy Background using Distress Oxide Inks and the Adorable Space Explorer set from My Favorite Things.

I started with a piece of  Watercolor paper and I added Distress Oxide Inks in: Worn Lipstick, Wilted Violet, Fossilized Amber,  Faded Jeans, Cracked Pistachio, Broken China & Black Soot Distress Ink. I used my heat tool to dry the paper in between each color. Once I had the background the way I liked it I added some White Gesso to create Stars. Once the panel was completely dried I used the MFT Blue Prints 15 to die cut the panel. Then I adhered it to a White top folding card base.

I stamped each image onto some X-Press it blending card stock using Lawn Fawn’s Jet Black ink. This is my favorite paper to use with my Copics. The blend so smooth and the ink doesn’t saturate the paper as much so you save on ink. One tip when using Black Copic friendly ink.. give it a few minutes to dry before you stay to color. Sometime the outline can smear if you start coloring too soon. Trust me it’s worth the extra minute.

Then I colored them in with Copics in the following colors.. Skin: E50, E51, E21 & E04 Balloons: BG10, BG11, BG13, V12, V15, V17, Y32, YR31 & Y35 Hair: E23, E25 & E27 Space Suit: N6, N4, N2 & N0/ B24 & B26, R24 & R29. I used the same colors in the Planets and Stars. I also added some Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen in Clear to parts of the images.

I used the coordinating dies to cut the images out and then I used Blueprints 27 to die cut a frame from some Black Glimmer paper. I adhered the frame with some Foam Tape. Then I added each image with some additional foam tape. I die cut the banner from Blueprints 27 from some Neenah Solar White card stock and stamped the sentiment in VersaFine Black ink.

You can see more details on how I created this card in the video below.. and don’t forget to check out our Copic Sketch Book Giveaway!!
