It’s finally here! Our Craft Lounge’s Big release party – they are releasing 28 new stamp sets, and to celebrate they are giving away one of each (details below)! You can view/purchase all of the sets here: 2009 Winter CHA Release Sets
Today I’m going to show you an AWESOME flower set – and give you a chance to win it!
This set is available in Crafty Cling Rubber.
Here are a few of my samples:
I used another OCL new release set called Whispy Patterns for the background paper. I did a technique that I’ll call ‘dirty stumping’ (because I think it sounds funny and I can’t think of any other good name for it!) I used odorless mineral spirits and Prismacolor pencils. The technique, well it was really easy – I just colored some circles (with three different colors) over the entire piece of the stamped background piece, took a large stump, soaked it with mineral spirits, and began blending in a circular motion – I kept the stump ‘dirty’ and just kept blending until the entire paper was colored– I was thrilled with the results! I used the Prismacolor pencils for the main image as well, and although you cannot see it in the picture, the flower centers are made with a large glue dot and microbeads!
I basically did the same technique for this card – just used two colors for the background – and Whispy Patterns was also used for this one!
