Bloom love grow

Hello everyone, 

I was asked by Abs to make some samples with the new release stamps for the AALL & Create Hochanda shows ! Of course I couldn't say no to that ! 

This one is a 6 x 6 panel which I love making ! 

and here's how:

I used a brayer and two shades of blue acrylic paint to get some colour on this panel which is cut from Mixed Media paper. I added some stamping, partly with blue Archival ink and partly with white paint. Just make sure to clean your stamps straight away ! 

Next I added some stencilling. I used VersaMark ink and this fab embossing powder by Seth Apter. 

I then added some more stamping with Orange Distress Oxide ink and added the silhouette with modelling paste. 

Next I stamped some flowers and made a sentiment from some of the words of this fab stamp set by Tracy ! 

I coloured the flowers with Copic markers and added some orange on the sentiment. I didn't use this in the end because it was much whiter than the silhouette so I found some paper that was about the same shade of white and matted it on black card stock. 

I have used the following AALL & Create materials:

Stamp #161  Ladybug
Stamp set #140 Doodled blooms
Stencil #80 Lushy Leafy
Stencil #75 Illusion
