Speshink Design Team - Louise - The Aviator

Morning all, Today we have a clever card made by Louise Using the Speshink Aviator Stamp.
                                                            Stamps available HERE.
Masking stamps and over stamping can leave great results and add extra depth to a project.
Here is what Louise has to say xx.

Well i thought i needed to start using a lot more colour so here are my rainbow helmets 
1. Taking a A4 sheet of white card i folded it in half and using the Aviator stamp and black versafine stamped her down on the right hand side of the card leaving off the collar
2. taking a mask made from a post-it note of the aviator I covered up the first image. Then dropping the stamp down again, Stamped  to the right of the image, overlapping the first image.
3. I continued overlapping and dropping the stamp using the mask to achieve 4 images of the aviator along the card.
4. I used prismacolour pencils and blended with a blending pen keeping to rainbow shades
5.The phrase "NEVER WAS SO MUCH OWED BY SO FEW" was stamped onto paper with dovecraft apha stamps DCVWOOSO  cut out and modge podged down.

Speshink Dt Gloria. Gypsy Rose.

Morning all, and thank you for stopping by for another Speshink Design Team post. Today Gloria is sharing a make using my Gypsy Rose stamp.

I'm back again with a new Spesh Ink project
using the Gypsy Rose image available here
I like the term fortune teller better, 
but that's just me being difficult.

In an attempt to use a different technique for each of these projects, I decided to
give the no-lines technique a go with this lovely lady.
I started by stamping her with Antique Linen Distress Ink using my Misti.

I began coloring her flesh first just in case it was harder to do the no lines
technique than I thought. Not too bad. It's been quite a while since I've colored
with Copics this way. 

The hair is the bane of my existence, but I think it worked
out in the end.

I decided to leave her pearls out of the equation entirely.
I just felt she didn't really need them at this point. 
Much like the print on her head scarf. Gone. 

I colored the background in with Copics, and then dropped blending fluid
onto it to give a bit of a bokeh effect.

Using an art journal insert page, I sprayed it using Dylusions sprays
and stamped some gold embossed stars. 

I matted her onto black card stock and added some words watercolored
to match the image.

Lastly, I added some sequins to really make her happy.
What's a gypsy without sequins?

Speshink DT - Saadia - Gypsy Rose

Afternoon all, and thank you for stopping by. Today as part of the Speshink Dt, Saadia has created this beautifully layered journal page using my Speshink Gypsy Rose stamp.
Below is a little description of what Saadia has done. xx

Brief process:
Its a very simple journal page. I hope you like it. 
Lets start:
 I used a 300 gsm /140 Ib watercolor paper and made the background with Dylusions ink sprays in Laid back lilac and Funky fuschia colors and Dina Wakley paints. I used different stencils for the background. 
Next, I doodled a little bit with White Gelly roll pen. 
After that, I stamped 'The Gypsy Rose' image on watercolor paper using Tonic studios stamping platform and colored the image with Kuretaki Gansai Tambi watercolors. 
Lastly I added the sentiment stickers.
Thank you for visiting.

Stop by next Monday to see what Louise has created using my Speshink Stamps.

White Mulberry Paper
Coloured Cardstock

Hi everyone, it’s my turn here again on Speshink blog.  And it is totally my fault why you have been kept waiting, I’m so sorry.  Let’s hope the wait is worth it!

This time I’ve stamped the lovely Gypsy Rose onto white mulberry paper.
Because I’m going to use Copics, I’ve used Memento Ink but be prepared for it not to be a crisp image, it will bleed slightly.  But that’s ok, I wanted it to do that!

Leave the ink to dry for a little while, it wasn’t a problem here as it is so hot, 5 minutes and you’re ready to go.

Choose your pens and start to colour, you’ll not be able to blend on mulberry paper as you normally would.  The ink will soak through easily, so make sure you have plenty of scrap paper under your image and keep moving it, you don’t want the darker Inks to come back up through the lighter colours.  Have a blender pen  handy for pushing colours that bleed back into where they should be!  I liked the bleeding around the outside edges but not too much within the image.

When you are happy with your colouring, take a wet paintbrush and water and dampen the mulberry paper where you want to tease around your image.  This gives a lovely wispy edge.

When it’s dry, I used a decoupage glue to stick it on to a piece of hessian.  I like how you can see the texture of the hessian through your coloured image.

Then layer two pieces of card together, I used a scuffer on the edge of the larger red piece.  Add to your base card and then stick on your hessian and image.

Stamp your wording and use the chisel end of your pens to give a small border.
Add a few gems, again coloured with your Copics and finish off with......glitter.  Mark’s favourite ha ha !

Hope you like it
