Dream Big: Imagine Collaboration with Joy Clair


Hello! The Artists in Residence for Imagine had the wonderful opportunity to collaborate with Joy Clair. They sent us some fabulous stamps, and I really love them. The stamps have such beautiful details, and there are many many options within each set.

I chose to work with the Dream Big Clear Stamp Set. It features a big dream catcher with feathers and beads that you can place as you wish.  It's linework is so fine, that I knew that VersaFine ink would be the perfect ink for these stamps. But first, I chose to spritz some Fireworks! on to my watercolor paper. I focused on keeping the color up where I would place the dream catcher later.


After the Fireworks! dried, I inked up the hoop of the dream catcher and stamped it out. Then I "built" the rest of the dream catcher using the beads and feathers that are also in the set. It was so much fun to create the rest of the piece. After I was happy with the beads and feathers, I drew a "string" with a PITT pen. I also stamped the "Dream Big" sentiment in the lower left corner.


I thought it would be nice to have some dimension, so I unscrewed the spritzer from my silver irRESISTable and used the straw end of the spritzer to drop silver randomly on the piece. After it dried, I brushed Bahama Blue on 2 sides of the watercolor paper and New Sprout on the other 2 sides. My card base was made out of a blue cardstock that matched the Bahama Blue shade that I used on the card. I brushed a bit of RoseBud Fireworks! on to 2 edges of the card for just a little more shimmer. Honestly, these stamps are so fun that you don't need to do very much to make a fabulous project.

Supplies:
Imagine:
Fireworks! Spray in Rose Bud, New Sprout, Bahama Blue
VersaFine Ink in Onyx Black
irRESISTable in Silver

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some
