Here’s the last Make & Take we made last Saturday. We were shown how to create a mask so that the stalk of the branches didn’t stamp over the flower which was stamped first. This also gives it a bit of a 3D effect.
To get the mask effect stamp the flower image first using Momento Ink then cut a circle out of scrap paper, place it over the flower and then stamp the leaves (again in Momento). When I got home I added some more leaves as I had a bit of a gap. I don’t have the ‘Choose Happiness’ set so I used ‘Bloom with Hope’ which is a Hostess only set.
The leaves and flower were coloured in with the Blendabilities Markers. These markers do tend to ‘bleed’ on the back of the card stock so it is adhered to the card base rather than stamping directly onto the card base.
We were fortunate to have Sophie from the Australian office at our event and she gave a great session on using Blendabilities. One tip she gave was to use the Colour Lifter to add highlights to you image. I have done this with my flower and I’m pleased with the effect – thanks Sophie.
