Hello Crafty People,
This is Ria Banerjee, I blog at rbartfx.blogspot.in I am super happy to be Guest Designing this month.
Thanks to Vidushi for giving me this opportunity :)
Today I am going to show some of the projects that I did with the set that I received as my happy mail from Vidushi. The set- Flower in a Jar, is one such stamp set I have come across that has endless possibility to work with. Looking at the set only, gives you so many ideas. With this one set, you can assemble all the elements and even the smallest cute bee in one card but also you can use each and every element separately; I have tried to do the latter.
For the first card that I have incorporated some painting skills of mine *grin* as the set gave me a beautiful picture to frame. I started with the Jar (the most beautiful element of the set). I stamped the Jar on a Water color Paper with two colors of distress inks viz. Gathered twigs from Tim Holtz distress inks and Green Garland from Artistry inks. First I stamped the Green on the stems and then the Brown on the rims of the jar to avoid merging these.
I loved the crisp image of the Jar and the stems. Then I took some water and a brush to wash the edges (but not too much) also by adding Broken china distress ink (to give a glass effect). I shaded the portion below the Jar with the same inks but this time the brown color on a greater proportion to get the dark shade.
Then I stamped all the flowers with Festive Berries Distress inks (to get the blotted effect) and shaded twice with the same ink to get some layers and finished it off with Gathered Twigs color for the last dark layer. For the leaves Green Garland again with the same technique as I did with flowers. Fussy cut all the flowers and the leaves and arranged it on the Jar simply by sticking it with glue.
I made some extensions to the bunch with the same used colors before to complete the picture. Lastly, the sentiment with some Archival Ink Black. And it’s done!!!!
With only Five colors the whole picture is complete :)
For the second project I chose for a Tag. I took a cardstock, stamped the sentiment with Versamark and embossed it Black. I used a stencil and blended some Green Garland on it and again I stamped the Messy lines by Peek-a-Boo designs on it with the same color. I stamped the bunch of flowers separately and embossed it white.
After that, I colored it with Peacock Feathers and Shaded Liliac distress inks and finished it with some sketching with dark blue, fussy cut them, and pasted it on the tags. And here it goes…
My third project is again a card and again florals, as there are so many varieties of flowers to stamp, can’t get enough of one! I randomly stamped the roses with the leaves on a card stock. I colored it with Festive berries and Picked Raspberries, leaves with Mustard seed and Green Garland distress inks, and finished it off with some sketch pens (as they add the darkest shade I need all the times). The sentiment is embossed with white and here it looks like this…
My last project is with the tiniest stamp of the set, yes the BEE. The bee is too cute to ignore and I decided to make a whole card with the bee. I stamped, fussy cut, colored and pasted on a brown card stock. Made the edges on green with one of the designs from Its Plaid time by Peek-a-Boo. Some Mulberry flowers and a ribbon complete the Card.
I hope you liked all my projects. Pardon me for making the post long :P
Happy Crafting and enjoy all the Peek-a-Boo stamps!
