It’s time for the March New Releases at Crafty Sentiments Designs!

So here’s what I came up with as soon as I saw Isobel – Let’s Paint…

Well,as she was getting all painty I thought I’d join in the messy fun too!I started by stamping her onto watercolour paper cut with a notebook page style die then masked her off with the same image on copier paper.As I wanted a nice splatty effect I opted for a selection of,slightly watered down,Posh Impressions Rainbow Inks that I’ve had in my possession for quite some time.Just used the squeeze and drop from a height method…very technical,you know 😉 The only problem was as the ink was quite sloppy and the copier paper absorbent the Magenta soaked through on her shoe and paint palette 😦 No fear…stamped out again on another piece of watercolour paper,coloured her with watercolour pencils and the Posh Inks to match my splots then fussy cut her.No need to worry about those stray tendrils of her hair,they’re already in place from the first stamping 🙂 Can’t really see it from the pic but it has given her some lovely dimension due to the thickness of the paper 🙂 The sentiment has been created on my computer (well,Hubby’s laptop since my PC is still dead 😦 Cue violins) on the same paper and treated as in the main image.For the background I sprayed the Posh Impressions Inks from some Crafts Too Misters (this is what I’d mixed the ink and water in in the first place).These work great!And a lot cheaper than some other brands.I squirted quite liberally and allowed the colours to merge and run.Finished off with some kraft card,a staple,jute twine,paperclip and brads for an arty/stationery type feel.

Please head over to the Crafty Sentiments Inspirational Blog to see everyone else’s fantastic ideas and creations 🙂 Enjoy! The new stamps will be available at Crafty Sentiments Designs on 23rd March.

    Love it. I use to paint and draw on the walls when I was young…paper had too small of boundaries…haha. I wrote that on my blog profile. Wonderful card!
