Made a birthday card for one of the ladies in the UK Art Swap Group i belong to. This is my first time using these quite wonderful stamps by Darcy Wilkinson. Darcy has just launched her own rubber stamp designs under the Paper Artsy umbrella.
Darcy also has a wonderful Blog called Art and Sole where she has many inspirational tutorials. Darcy loves to share her work so please pop over and enjoy her Blog.
The card blank is a cream coloured 4.5” square. Sprayed the background using Dylusions Sprays Vibrant Turquoise, Calypso Teal and Crushed Grapes, then stamped the heart border.
Coloured the border hearts in with Paper Artsy Fresco Paints London Bus and Blood Orange mixed together.
Stamped the sentiment also from Set One, added some of the individual small heart images and coloured them in using Derwent Inktense Pencils, red and orange. Used the white Inktense pencil to add the white dots in all of the hearts.
Mopped up some of the Dylusions colours onto the back of the card and added a small heart using the individual small vine heart image.
Finally went over the whole card with a combination of the new Gold and Copper Metallic Pan Pastel. These new metallic colours can be soft or very bright when mixed with water and other mediums. So glad i now have them in my stash.
Love this sentiment that Darcy has made into a stamp, it really resonates with me as i do love my crafting, whatever form it takes.
Looking forward to using Darcy’s stamps on a fabric project very soon.
Thanks for dropping by
