Today MJ has been playing with her new Inky Doodle Stamps and this time has chosen to use the ‘Topiary’ set. She loves this set as there are so many elements to it and lots of things you can do with it. She has chosen to use it as Trees (but she already has lots of other ideas of how to use it to share with you at a later date!).
What MJ did:-
- Take a 5 1/4” x 5 1/4” square of white card for stamping.
- Using the large slim Topiary and the Peacock feather stamps. Ink the Topiary with Peeled Paint ink and the feather with Peacock Feathers.
- Next stamp the feather onto the top of the inked Topiary stamp and create a pattern as in picture above (this is called ‘Kiss Stamping’). Then stamp on to the white card. Repeat twice more in a row.
- Stamp the small tree trunk at base of each tree using Aged Mahogany.
- Take a small paintbrush and paint the top of the tree with the Glue and Seal. Be careful not to go over edges of image. Dry with heat tool.
- Use Tumbled Glass ink and ink blending tool to add the blue to tree edges by blending outwards from centre of tree to create halos of colour. Gently buff away excess ink from trees.
- To finish stamp the large and small peacock and wording stamps using Black Archival ink.
- Mat and layer to suit. Enjoy!
