New Infusions from PaperArtsy.....

Yes, you can now see all the new colours and lots of artwork if you head on over to the PaperArtsy Blog.
Meanwhile here's a step by step to show you how I made my Flower Tag:


For this project I'm using a Stamp Positioner as I want to overstamp my image. Ink up with VersaMark:

Sprinkle on the Infusions - I've used Sleight Blue, In the Navy and a touch of Golden Sands:

Rub them into the stamp:

Spritz about 3 times:

and stamp. I love this bit - it's always great to see the detail you can get even though you're using a watercolour medium:

Add details in black - I coloured the eyes and round the features and face - to add definition:

Next for the background. Using a JOFY stencil I sprinkled Violetta and Golden Sands through the stencil and spritzed:

So it looks like this:

Then I flipped over the stencil and stamped with it on another piece of card:

You get two quite different effects:

Just repeat over and over to create a background. You can also mix the two techniques on the same background:

I added a bit of stamping in Sleight Blue :

Then finish off as you please!


Thanks for looking!

Stamping with infusions and stencils, you are so clever Helen. I love these samples, the colours are delicious and now I really want to try stamping with infusions! x
