Snowstorm collage

Snowstorm collage

After making a small panel collage the other day I picked up another card base which I had covered in flecks of masking fluid and made a snowstorm collage. Other than the addition of masking fluid I used the same technique described in my collage tutorial: two background stamps and a feature image (often I use a small additional image as well, but for this one I used the tree multiple times)

I created the collage in the following order over the masking fluid:

  1. stamp part of letter background in Paris Dusk ink after stamping it on scrap paper first
  2. stamp part of music background in Elderberry ink
  3. position hill mask  and stamp “Before the Snow” trees in blue and elderberry ink
  4. sponge sky in blues and elderberry
  5. remove mask, sponge the snow around the bottom of card and stamp foreground tree in blue.
  6. remove masking fluid

Hearts abound

Love Flourish

Love is in the Air on the Penny Black blog again this week so drop in to see the stamps from the new Valentine’s Catalog. I played around with two heart stamps and shades of pink.

When I started sponging over the embossed heart so it could be seen I had every intention of keeping a neutral colour scheme of ivory, white and tan but that little heart inside the heart just cried out to be coloured pink and the rest is obvious-pink came to stay. I still like the softness of the colour scheme.

Are you shocked to see those tiny half pearls? Me too!

Also: White embossing powder, pink half pearls and a wee ivory ribbon

Daisy heart

To create this pink heart I masked a rectangle with post it notes and embossed the heart in the centre with clear e.p. I added pinks with a brayer, memento Angel Pink at the top and Rosebud at the bottom and in the centres of the daisies with a marker.  I inked the sentiment stamp in the two pinks to mimic the brayered background.
