Welcome to to the September 2014 Heartfelt Creations alumni Blog Hop. I have had the pleasure of being on the Design Team for 2 terms, and just as happy now to stay on as an alumni!! Heartfelt Creations stamps and dies are among my very favorite in my stamp collection. So with that said, if you have arrived to my blog from the very talented Alissa Wells Blog, then you're on the right track.
To color the background and the flowers I used Lindy's Stamp Gang Caribbean Cruise Flat Fabio Magicals Set. I washed the background in Luscious Lime and Pineapple Passion. The colors were a perfect match for my Bo Bunny Country Garden Paper - Morning Sunrise. I did some light masking with embossing paste and The Crafters Workshop 6x6 Template - Mini Chickenwire Reversed.
My stamped background was done with the HCPC 3367 Vintage Life Background PreCut Set.
The frame was die cut from corrugated cardboard, primed with white gesso, , and painted using the Flat Fabios and stamped using the same stamp as in the background. I found the photo of the nest on Pinterest.
There is little trick that I use when stamping to get a different look to my stamp designs. I take the stamps and do an allover design on a letter sized sheet of white card stock, scan it to my computer, upload to Photoshop, then use a photo editing program to change the look. In this case I used Topaz adjust Stylize action to achieve the results I wanted. It gave the lines on my stamped image a swirly look. I can use 1 stamp and achieve a few different results. Like have multiple designs in one!
