Thursday’s SCS challenge was to use jewels. I had just received these beautiful new stamps and had to use them! They are from Rubber Stamp Tapestry and they are extremely tiny stamps! The vase is no more than 3/4 of an inch tall and 1/2 inch wide. So you can image how tiny the rest are! I also used some tiny floral and leaf stamps from Technique Tuesday. Love these mini stamps!
This fabulous blue and brown dp is by Demi Design (hemidemisemiquaver) offered free for downloading, on her blog. She’s wonderfully talented! Have a look at her blog.
The vase is stamped in Basic black and embossed with clear ep. I colored it in with Twinkling H2O’s and a mini paintbrush.
Because the image was embossed even this tiny area can be easily painted. If I get any outside the lines, I can just polish off the embossed areas.
For any of you who may not have tried Twinkling H2O’s, they are shimmery watercolors that are easy to work with. I just drop 3-4 drops of water right on the watercolor cake that comes in a lipgloss like container. Then I use my paintbrush to swirl it around until it loosens up and it’s ready to apply. I add more water as I go, so I keep a spritz bottle or an eyedropper ready when I’m working. The colors are vibrant and they glisten even when dry.
I added the mini jewels for the finishing touch. I like to use a clean simple design when I’m working with an image that is rather small. I want all the focus on it. Because the design is simple, I can really amp up the volume on the colour and pattern.
Thanks for stopping in! If you ever have any questions, feel free to ask!
Have a fabulous day!
Love your little framed vase – it’s so detailed! great colors and coloring! I need to try my H2O’s!
