Hello friends! Today I’m sharing 2 cards that I made with the Artomology by Jane Davenport Tin of Friends wooden stamp set, along with the Jane Davenport Colorsticks in Silky Skin. These were so fun to make…the sketchy look of these stamps really brought out the more artistic side of my creativity.
For my first card, I stamped some images on a piece of watercolor paper using black ink. I made myself a paint palette by scribbling some of the skin toned and pink toned colorsticks on a scratch piece of watercolor. I used a wet paintbrush to paint on different colors on the faces. Next, I added some pink on the cheeks and lips.
I trimmed another piece of watercolor paper to A2 sized: 4/25 x 5.5 in. I knew I wanted to create windows for the stamped faces, so I took one of the circles from the Nestabilities Circle dies, and a ruler, to mark out where I should die cut the circles.
Here’s a process photo:
Once the circles were die cut, I scribbled the 2 lighter pinks and the light purple color sticks on my makeshift paint palette, and watercolored onto the paper. Once dry, I added foam tape on the entire back of the watercolored panel, making sure to add pieces between the circles as well.
I trimmed out 6 of my favorite faces, keeping in mind that I wanted the faces to be turned toward each other, and adhered each face behind a circle frame. Next I adhered the entire panel to a white card base.
My second card is very similar, but with some differences.
On a piece of watercolor paper, I again scribbled some of the colorsticks to create a paint palette. On another piece of watercolor, I loosely painted some of the colors in a very abstract circular shape. Once dry, I stamped some of the faces in the middle with black ink. I die cut those faces with a square die, from the Nestabilities Classic Square dies, this time.
I trimmed a piece of pink pattern paper to slightly smaller than A2. I ripped one edge for a more artistic look, and I slightly roughened up the other edges with the edge of my scissors. Then, I adhered it to a white card base. Using a ruler, I adhered the 6 squares to the card with foam tape.
I added the same sentiment as my first card, and a few flower sequins to finish off my card.
I absolute love how soft and feminine and artistic my card turned out. Make sure you check out the Spellbinders site for lots of Jane Davenport goodies! Thanks for stopping by!
