Jane's Doodles Release Blog Hop
Hey everyone! Jane's Doodles is releasing two new stamps sets today, Winnie and Anemone, and we're having a hop to celebrate.
One random commenter from the hop will win a $50 certificate to the Jane's Doodles store.
My first card features the Winnie set. I stamped her with Versafine on watercolor paper and then created a mask in order to stamp the zigzag border over top.
The image/background was painted with Kuretake watercolors.
My second card features Anemone. I love these flowers and I wanted to paint them also, but I wanted to something more vibrant and painterly, so I pulled out some acrylic paints.
I stamped the anemone and leaves with Antique Linen distress ink and then painted the image with the acrylics. Since the acrylics are opaque, this is not an exact science. I painted in stages following the lines and also using another stamped image as a guide, particularly when I went in to add some shadows.
I love this look and am definitely going to be trying it with some of my other floral images.
Ok, your next stop is Marion, but I have the entire hop order listed below as well.
Happy hopping and good luck!
