Cling images are grey, foam-backed, and have the images printed on them. Meaning, when you stick them to your acrylic block, the image shows up. Its great to get the foam of a traditional red rubber stamp, but the see-through ability of a clear stamp. Now, I know what you are thinking, Kimberly, grey is not see through. Yes, I know. BUT the stamps are cut to the outline of the image and it makes a big difference.
I wanted to give these olives a shiny and dimensional look. By using the Blender Pen, I removed the black (W10) along a curved path (following the outside lines of the olives). Because the color was so intense, it took a few passes. Happy with the results.
To make the background on this one, I used a recipe card stamp. The lines made it easy.
The lavender was colored with Copics first, then I applied Fun Flock over the top. Just apply a little bit of glue, pour the flock over, push it down, and wait a minute to tap off the excess.
Now I did color all these images with Copics, but you could paper piece, or try the new Painting With Powder technique from Stampendous. Pretty cool. I will be showing you a project with that soon!
I hope that you had a good weekend! The weather here was beautiful. We found a new church (New Covenant) that we loved, and just hung out. We also got the chance to do a little house hunting. There are very beautiful houses here! Alright, I have talked enough for today! thanks for stopping by!
