Artsystamper Addicts Design Team - Sketched Spring Blossoms


TheArtsystamperShop


I am sharing a new shop (to me) the amazing 
illustrated digital images of
 Beverly Cole

My second project is creating with the lovely images from the Sketched Spring Blossoms

This set is so beyond gorgeous.
I say that again, ALL of  Beverly's work
is beyond gorgeous


TRICKS and TIPS:
I added texture as well as interest by adding several layering colors in a random dotted pattern.

Additional depth was added by outlining in a soft grey to mimic a shadow to have the image appear to be lifted up just slightly from the white background.




This set is also offered already colored.....
WOW..
I love that!  


Sentiment: Penny Black Wood Mount

STAMPlorations Digital Guest Designer!

Wonderful
Digital Wednesday Mini Hop!

This is a great chance to get to know the designers and also a chance for prizes!
Visit designer blogs and leave comments for a chance to win a $15 gift code to use on either the digital store or main store!


Today I am sharing the same image 
TWO WAYS.
The Coffee and Roses Digital Stamps set
 --(PLUS Bonus tags!!)
 I hope you have been enjoying our hops so far!


Colorful 4x4 Card:
For the first card I made a 4 x 4 square card
coloring the images with Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend Alcohol Markers.  The Reds, Oranges and Corals really blend well.  I left harsher edges as I really wanted to see dark red then corals in the roses.

I added a touch of blue in the greenery and left the background white adding a blue matting layer
to carry on the blues.

I was going to keep it a note card theme
...but I could 
not resist the clear stickers....
I think they added the perfect balance.



I added Wink of Stella Clear to just the coffee.....added sweetness!


Monochromatic Background Only Card:

On the next card I really wanted to highlight the background to make the foreground really stand out.  I used the Tan Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend and did a freestyle water "spill"in the lightest color.
I outlined the image in the darkest tan and radiated outward darkest to lightest.
I added a few darker areas to really look like it was a coffee spill and some seeped thru the paper more deeply than in other areas.
I think it was successful and also made the image "pop"
I hope you try this technique as well!


Very nifty and handy Clear Stickers were used as sentiments.  I applied the clear stickers to white cardstock, trimmed it and then added with a glue pen to coordinating cardstock to match the card bases or matting layer, and then 
added mini pop up squares to adhere.
Cannot get any easier sentiments!

Brush Blended Technique - Thank You!



This card was so easy peasy to do.

I dies cut the SSS circle leaves die and trimmed it down.  I brush blended in a smooth circle on bristol cardstock with the lemon tonic with a touch of the chinese red.
I then used a smaller blender brush to ink onto
the leaves in Chinese Red.
The butterflies were die cut then stamped with the help of the MISTI and then I used a small round blending brush to add a dab of the Forest Lake ink to the wings.
The sentiment was inked in Versafine Onyx black and cut out by hand leaving a small edge of white.



I think this color combo is striking!
Just showing that you do not always have to color leaves green.






Spectrum Noir Harmony Water Reactive Inks:
Chinese Red, Lemon Tonic, Forest Lake.
Clearly Besotted Butterflies (Retired) SSS Leaves Circle Die, Waffle Flower Sentiment
