Bare Tree Paint Cards

Darkroom Door - Friday, April 28, 2017
Hi, it’s Anneke here. Today I have two cards to share that I’ve made with the new Bare Tree Eclectic Stamp. The bare tree is a beautiful stamp, the perfect stamp to create wintery scenes with. I’ve already made a sympathy card using the tree but for this blogpost I’ve chosen to do something different, just to show you how versatile this stamp is.


Instructions:
1. Apply Ocean, Blackberry, Fresh Lime and Sky Dina Wakley paint to a watercolour panel. Spray water on top and let the paint drip. Create splashes by tapping on a brush loaded with diluted paint.
2. Stamp squares randomly using the Checkered Texture Stamp and Ocean paint. Stamp text using the Alphabet Texture Stamp and Fresh Lime paint. Stamp dots using the Dots Texture Stamp and Blueberry paint.
3. Stamp circles with a lid using black ink and pink paint. 
4. Stamp branches to the right upper corner using parts of the Bare Tree Eclectic Stamp and Fresh Lime paint.
5. Stamp the Bare Tree Eclectic Stamp and the word ‘Hello’ using Archival Ink Jet Black. Use the MISTI in order to achieve a bold and crisp print.
6. Ground the tree by drawing a black line.


Supplies used:
Darkroom Door Bare Tree Eclectic Stamp
Darkroom Door Whimsical Words Rubber Stamp Set

Instructions:
1. Stamp the tree once (slightly) using the MISTI. Leave the stamp and the card on the MISTI in place while creating leaves using a dry brush and Ocean and Fresh Lime paint. Overstamp a couple of times with the Bare Tree using Archival Ink Jet Black.
2. Stamp lamps in the tree using a stamp from the Carved Caravans set using orange paint.
3. Stamp 3 houses on a paper scrap using a stamp from the Carved Houses set and Sky paint. Cut out and glue in place. Add orange banners using a stamp from the Carved Caravans set.
4. Stamp table and chairs straight onto the card with Archival Ink Jet Black
5. Stamp a row of flowers using a stamp from the Gardening Vol 2 set and pink paint. Add orange centres to the flowers with a paint marker.
6. Stamp text using characters from the Alphabet Medley set.
7. Add details as shown with a black and white pen.
