Hello and welcome to this stop on the Craft Stamper Hop!
Hi, well I'm Kim and I have been part of the Craft Stamper Magazine Design team since 2009, WOW I still pinch myself about that... Here's the post about my first published piece! I love being published in their fabulous magazine, and 2012 saw quite a few of my projects on the front cover Thank You! I hope I inspire readers to create whatever their imagination conjures up.
I can't quite narrow my style to anything specific I've always described it as a fusion of everything I love, like my next project will demonstrate.
I went for an arty piece for the blog hop, I'm so pleased with how it came out... totally fusion, let me explain
I started by printing this stunning image by the talented Krista from Saturated Canary.This is what I love about digital stamps you can print to any size.
Of course I used my copics, lots of airbrushing for the background, and even through the castle stencil, I used a few Lavinia stamps for the grasses and foliage.
The water texture was created by stamping woodgrain and heat embossing in clear. Then I airbrushed over, notice the castle reflection? I simply turned the stencil over. Using a clear copic I brushed lightly over some of the embossed areas to create ripples.
So one thing I really had to get a hang of for a feature in Craft Stamper was using embossing paste and stencils, I love the effect and very impressed with how well it works on glass, really stays on there (think I can see a few more projects on the horizon)
This is the image with the glass from the frame laid on top.
I also followed my technique of embossing paste on acetate adding a generous sprinkling of stickles dry glitter.
So here's the finished project...
thought I would share my sample sheet, had so many ideas too, a glimpse to see the process unfold.
I hope you enjoyed my post! Your next stop on the hop is the wonderful Jo Firth-Young.
