Jumping in Puddles by Alison

posted in: alison, Blog | 1

Hi, its Alison and it’s my turn on the blog today. Still using the rainbow theme, I decided I would go for the obvious this time. I already had Concord & 9th’s Rainbow Wishes set and when I saw My Favourite Things Puddle Jumper stamp set I just knew I had to use them together.  All the supplies are listed and linked to the shop at the bottom of this post.


Firstly I cut a piece of Bristol Smooth Card into a 5.5 inch square using my guillotine. Using my stamping platform and the listed Altenew inks I stamped the solid rainbow strips from the set. I found it easier to start with the smallest arc and work outwards to the largest. I then used my Zig clean colour light grey (091) and haze blue (302) with a waterbrush to create a grey wash and puddle effect around and under the rainbow. I did this after stamping the rainbow as I didnt want to dull the colour of the rainbow by stamping on the grey background. I then stamped the sentiment from the puddle jumper set in the bottom left corner using a Catherine Pooler midnight ink pad.


On another piece of Bristol Smooth Card, and using my stamping platform, I stamped the little boy image from the stamp set using Catherine Pooler midnight ink. I coloured the image with the listed zig clean colour pens. I then fussy cut out the image using my snips.


I matt and layered the topper onto a 6 inch square of black card and a 6.5 inch square of red card using Tombow mono liquid glue. I then stuck this to a 7 inch card blank. Then used double sides foam tape I adhered the image of the boy so he looked like he was jumping in the puddle.
