This time of year, we are all excited to see the beautiful products that are going to be in the new catalogue. At the same time, we are a little bit sad to see some of our favourite items retiring. Our Stamp ‘n Hop Blog Hop today is going to showcase lots of our retiring products.
I chose a stamp set I hadn’t even inked up which was going to retire.Sigh! Do you have stamp sets like that? Capture the Good stamp set is great for scrapbook pages with it’s camera image and perfect to make a card for for photography enthusiasts.
I didn’t want a plain old black camera and I had this arty thing in my mind which I wanted a multi coloured camera. So off I went to Google images. Do you know that’s really great for inspiration? I came across this artwork of a camera which was splattered with colour and it was just what I was wanting to do so I set about creating something like it.
I stamped the camera in Stazon ink. Then I added pigment sprinkles – a colour at a time. As a fond farewell to our beloved Pigment Sprinkles, I used them all! It’s important to let each colour dry between applications otherwise it will become a muddy mess. To create the circular shape of the lens, I used an Aqua Painter to move the colour around.
As my main image was busy with colour, I kept my background minimal by stamping the sentiment multiple times in Black. Then I added a strip of Basic Black cardstock embossed with the Absolutely Argyle embossing folder. The symmetrical pattern of the embossing folder brings out the magic of the Pigment Sprinkles.
