New Art Impressions

 The latest Bible Journaling stamp sets are debuting today on the Art Impressions blog.  I am using 5375 Grape Border to make a gift tag:

I love finding alternate uses for the Bible Journaling sets, and being tall and slim, they work beautifully on the Art Impressions 5223 - Bookmark Die.  
I mounted the clear acetate stamp onto my block, and coloured directly onto the image with my Tombow Dual Brush Markers.  I used a Sandy Allnock approach, and somewhat randomly coloured the leaves in 2 colours - #346 and #126, and also used 2 colours on the grapes - #569 and #757.  For the few spots where the woody vine shows through, I coloured it in #947 Burnt Sienna.  I huffed on the stamp to revive the colours before stamping it onto my Canson XL Watercolor Paper.  I used my damp #1 paintbrush to pull out the colour, being careful to keep it inside the image.  I scribbled both greens, plus #993, and #177 Dark Jade onto my palette, and dropped them into the image to create multi-coloured leaves.  After pulling out the colour from the grapes, I went back in with #803 to add some brighter tones, and used the #757 marker directly on the paper to redefine any lines that got blurred.  Finally I added some #565 Deep Blue in a few spots to add a few shadows - and that was it.  I wanted a fun, bright image 

The sentiment is from the Roses Exclusive Set available at, stamped in Versafine Onyx Black Ink.  I die cut the grommet hole and a couple of the small feathers that come with the bookmark die, and threaded them onto some plum coloured Baker's Twine.  *After giving the tag as a gift, the recipient can use it as a bookmark.  Be sure to check out the Ai blog today to see what Dot & Tricia have to share.
