Good Morning Crafters
Today we have a beautiful step by step by Pandy using the new Card-io stamp sets.
Check out the Personal Impressions website to see all the new stamps.
To create the above project you will need the following:
A piece of canvas
Adirondack Paint Dabbers (Lettuce, Citrus, Sail Boat Blue, Pool, Pink Sherbet Sunshine)
Card-io stamp – Woodland Walks
Memento ink pad Black Tuxedo
Needle and thread and some seed beads
Keeping the paint very dry – scrub over the canvas piece with the blues at the top and the greens at the bottom. Rub a line of pink along the horizon – then add a big spot of yellow for the sky and soften round the edge with a bit of pink.
Stamp loads of the little trees onto the tissue paper with the Memento ink and cut round each in a rough shape.
Use just a smear of PVA on the canvas to stick the tissue trees down,
you can build up as many layers as you wish.
Take the needle and thread and sew with back stitch.
Make long stitches on the front of the canvas and short stitches on the back, add a few beads to some of the front stitches to give dimension and texture.
The completed piece is then layered over a piece of green tissue paper and mounted onto a sheet of Sweet Dixie grey card, scored and folded in half, with brads
This is another way of using those beautiful Card-io stamps!
