I’m scheduling this because I have a busy week ahead, but I will be checking to make sure it’s okay.
One more monoprint to show you – I hope I get chance to play again with this technique, we’ll see.
This one is made with a solid stamp, using pigment inks, stamping the flowers directly onto the stamp with Versafine ink, then embossing it all.
Difficult though it is to see, I used a sky blue and a pale green on the stamp, edged with True Blue. I’m getting so frustrated with the fact that digital technology doesn’t recognise shade variations – this one’s a photo. Should try with the SLR. The bottom of the stamp is compressed – it must have been stored underneath others at some point, so it doesn’t stamp very well, so I added a piece of ribbon in a similar shade of blue to the edging, then edged the whole card before mounting onto pale blue. Good old Hero Arts Solid stamps.
The next one I’ll enter into a few challenges for this week because it fits
I love this stamp. Can’t remember where I got him – could be one of the companies which was going out of business, possibly Scrolls Works? Or maybe Lost Coast or Stamp Camp. I’m in a dribby drabby mood at the moment, as you can see from the background.
I’ve had a bit of a ‘bird fest’ lately, although that’s not unusual for me cos I love birds and have a lot of bird stamps, so this was just another play, using Distress inks.
Thanks for all the lovely comments you’ve been leaving – they really are appreciated. See you soon!
