Stretch Your Stamps 2 - Day 8 - Graphics (e,f,g,h,i)
Topic: Online Class

The third technique I used from day 8 of class was wet-on-dry stamping onto watercolor paper with graphic stamps. I chose a solid evergreen tree image to use and laid out five pieces of watercolor paper to use.

I pressed two different green die inks (Whispers brand) onto my craft sheet and spritzed with water. The tree stamp was pressed into the wet ink and stamped onto dry watercolor paper. I stamped repeatedly, inking after each impression.  A third green was used to ink the stamp directly and stamp over the trees I wanted to appear to be in the foreground.

I used the same process with straw ink to stamp the sun. When the panels were dry I trimmed them and layered with printed papers and one layer of foam tape.

For the first card I used a teal dot for the background and a golden pattern for the bordering. The sentiment is stamped on a golden cardstock with two rounded corners. This was bordered in teal and aligned with the upper edge.

I next used a yellow-green diamond background and a green graphic border. I used a fine line black marker to add a doodle line on the panel and mounted an aqua sentiment over a rust border.

The third card uses a teal dot background and a rust border. An aqua sentiment got a a banner end enhanced with lines and the panel got a broken doodle line in black.

Then I mounted a panel on a honeycomb background with a muted green border. The sentiment was cut with a banner end and bordered in green. Where it overhangs the left edge of the panel I used foam tape to raise it to the same level.

The final card with this technique got a medium dot teal background and a mottled border. I used gold gel pen to create a glint on the tree branches where they catch the light of the sun. The sun also got a bit of gold pen on the bottom rim. A fine black doodle line was drawn around the panel.

The sentiment was stamped on aqua, bordered in mottled cardstock and adhered to the front of the panel.
