Lin Brown at PaperArtsy

Lin has got some new stamps out at PaperArtsy - they are based on her own hand carved designs.
I was given some of the stamps to make up some art ready for the announcement on the blog and this is what I made.
First of all a tag set using Portfolio oil pastels, stencilling and acetate, a technique I used in my first posts as a Guest Designer for PaperArtsy:


Then I got out the glossy white card (love that stuff) and stamped up a background with the stamps and Distress inkpads and then stamped and cut out the flowers in StazOn black:


A white pen is used to highlight:


Then I used translucent Fresco paints to build up a background with the flower head and added flowers in black and white:


The buttons are stamped with the flower centres:


 Finally I stencilled onto an artboard (more of that in my March posts) and used white tissue paper for the flower heads. The leaves are stamped directly onto the board, overstamped in several different colours:


Head on over to the PaperArtsy blog to see lots of different ideas with these stamps - they lend themselves to many different styles.

Thanks for looking!

Helen

I can't believe how much fun it is to see what other people make with my stamps and you never disappoint Helen, you always come up with some genius way of using designs. I love everything that you created, thank you so much.
