Rockin’ around the christmas tree…
Guess what? I’ve played with the brand new Christmas stamps from Visible Image this weekend! Whohooo, they are totally amazing if you like to play around with colors, papers, mixed media or whatever. My passion is spray mists and watercolors, so that is what I have for you today!
The “rockin’ around the christmas tree” card is colored with watercolors on watercolor paper. Randomly picked and brusched on wet paper. When it was dry I splattered a tiny bit of blue on top and then stamped the tree and the sentense. Since it’s watercolor paper with a pretty rough surface you won’t get the totally black image you’ll get on smooth paper. I think it just adds texture to the piece, but if you want it perfect black – pick a smooth paper! Stamp set is called Rockin’ around, and you’ll find it HERE!
Then I’ve made a pink (!) christmas card. *gasp* But isn’t it kind of cool and pretty? Once again I’ve used watercolor paper, but this time with mists in pink and grey/silver-ish. Let it dry and stamped the beautiful collage stamp “Christmas Collage” on top. Like the other card, since it’s stamped on water color paper it adds texture to the image since the paper is a bit rough. The big snowflakes are grungeboard that I’ve painted with white gesso and added glitter to. Notice the badge in the middle of the big snowflake? It’s home made, and I’ve stamped the snowflake from the White Christmas set on a pink paper, cutted out in the right size for the badge and put it together. Think it become a beautiful center piece.
Idag blir det julkort i lite annorlunda färger! Varför måste man hålla sig till dom vanliga färgerna? Nä, lek och ha skoj istället. Dom nya julstämplarna från Visible Image är såååå läckra att ha till lite mixed media-liknande projekt. Jag har lekt med spraymister och akvarellfärger på dessa kort.
