In fear of being hoist by my own petard, I set to this morning to tackle something that has been building up for quite a while… I’d made a comment yesterday on the Craftwork Cards Fan Page in response to a post about hoarding craft materials: that it was only hoarding if you hadn’t actually used them. And then realised my collection of rubber stamps that hadn’t seen an ink pad was quite extensive #neverbeenused #nbu. So I laid them all out to start planning on using them all at least once… it might take a while:
This double spread layout uses brayered acrylic paints as the background – invaluable for wiping away errant ink once dry. Ranger Archival Inks used: Blue Violet / Saffron / Magenta Hue / Jet Black / Venetian Orange. Ranger Glacier White Pigment Ink. Stamps: Art Journey ‘Brushes & Pencils’; Stampendous ‘Cling Artist Elements’, ‘Brush Strokes’; Darkroom Door Eclectic Stamp ‘Coffee Stain’, ‘Pen Nibs’; Visible Image ‘Ink Splats’; Artemio 10001176 (swirls). Shading done with Sakura Koi Colouring Brush Pen and a water brush.
