Hello, I love the fun penguins in this clear stamp set from the 2017 Avery Elle Winter Release. I started by stamping both penguins, ice-block and present on post it tape and cut around the edges, to create a mask.
One Layer Card
Stamping & Masking
On a watercolour panel, stamp penguins near bottom of card panel and mask off, then stamp the present in the middle (so that it looks like the penguins are holding up the present in their flippers, so cute!) there is also a wreath in the set that they can hold. I am using archival jet black ink so that I can colour in with the Zig markers.
Adding Colour To The Background
Then stamp the ice-block over the feet of the penguins (to look like they are skating)! If there are any areas where it doesn’t stamp correctly use a waterproof pen to fill in any gaps. Place masks over the present and ice-block. Using a blender brush and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink lightly swipe over (backwards and forwards) the images to give a glow all around the masks.
Colouring The Image
Carefully peel off the masks and colour the images in the Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers. For the penguins I used mid-grey and grey, presents reds and green Ice-Block in blues and trail of lights in the shades I have already used. (The specific numbers used will be shown in the list of supplies below).
Adding To The Stamping
After it was all coloured in I thought it looked a little plain on the right-hand side so I stamped the trail of lights from the same stamp set and coloured these in using the same markers. The sentiment used was ’Sending Holiday Cheer’ stamped at the centre top of the panel about half an inch down. I attached this to an A2 side folding card base. (14cmx11cm) created from Bazzill Marshmallow card. For some sparkle I put a little Clear Wink of Stella over the ice and the New Crystal Accents over the decorations to add a little dimension.
