Today I have made an art journal for my DT post over at Katzelkraft. I have used some of the new stamps for this and it was great fun making it.
I painted this page with Art Anthology Sorbet paints. They are a bit gel like and have some glitter in them. I think they are great. I used a blue and a green. After this dried I used a stencil and some model paste to create the circles. These were then coloured with my finger and some Archival ink. I used a dark blue for this. Next I scraped some white gesso over the page with a pallet knife; I also rubbed some of it along the edges of the page.
I was then time to stamp the background. I used a few stamps for this; a complete list of all the stamps I used is at the bottom of this post.
Next I stamped the branch with the birds, partially, on the edge of the page. I wanted to put the mouse up it but I only then did I see he was actually facing the wrong way. So I used a bit of blank rubber to reverse the image. What you do is, you stamp the image you want to reverse on this rubber and then stamp the rubber on the paper, et voila ! a reversed image. Next I stamped the cat.
I coloured both images with Copic Markers, cut them out and adhered them onto the page. I placed the cat on some washi tape to ground him.
The sentiment was the last thing I stamped. I used white ink but I didn't think it stood out enough so I sprinkled white embossing powder over it and heat embossed it.
That was it !
Here is a close up of the 'reversed' mouse....

I used the following stamps:
