We are launching new Art Impressions Bible Journaling stamps today! I had fun making three projects, showing the new 5270 Columns Set:
I started by die cutting the largest of the new Bookmark Dies out of Canson XL Watercolor Paper. Using Tombow Dual Brush Marker #N55 Cool Grey 7, I coloured the urn from the set, and stamped it in the lower left corner, and again on scrap paper. I cut out the scrap image, and masked the urn. Using my Stamp Positioner, I coloured only the bottom 1/4 of the large column image in #N55, and stamped it slightly higher and to the right of the urn. Next I coloured only the top half of the column, and because these are clear stamps, I was able to match it up to the other half of my image, creating a much smaller column. I stamped a second urn on top. After more masking, I stamped the full column image behind the others, also in #N55. With a damp #1 paintbrush, I pulled out the colour from the lines, keeping it where the shadows would fall.
Using the two trailing greenery images from 5126 - WC Foliage Set 4, I stamped them with #177 Dark Jade, having them trail out from either side of the urns. I used the rose image from 5258 - Flower Set 4 and stamped it several times in #493 Reflex Blue, and touched everything with my damp paintbrush to bring out the colours. I added several of the feathery greenery image in #126 Light Olive to my pots. I added a pale wash of #493 to the background. The Bookmark Dies include several small images, so I diecut a feather and cross, and added them to my bookmark along with some Baker's Twine.
My second bookmark and card are painted in the same method, with the same supplies. *More details on my blog!
