Stamp Class of the Month - Watercolour Techniques - Project 2

As promised I have the second project from my Water colour pencil technique class of the month, and this time I used one of the fantastic free offerings from the Sale-A-Bration Catalogue.

Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper.

At the start of the class I gave each person a card sized piece of this DSP, showed them a couple of ways to colour it and we all had a little practice. I had to drag them away from that to get started on the class projects, but we used this to fill in any "waiting time" that occurred when using the stamps or framelits. And, they all wanted some of this by the end of the night!

and it also makes a great base for gift bags.
I made 8 of these for my customers in the class (just to save time for the main focus of the class- colouring) and it was a quick and easy job using the Gift Bag Punch Board.

Our project for the class was to create a tag for the bag and for this we started with a 2 inch wide strip of basic black card that was punched at the top with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and at the base with the Banner Triple Punch. Next we used the new and totally awesome Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing folder (find this on page 47 of the Occasions Catalogue)
I love that this folder gives you different textures on either side of the card stock so you can choose which ever works best with your design.

The leaves and flower images are from the Special Reason Bundle (saves you 10% when you buy both the Framelits and Stamp set) and the technique we used on these images is to colour back over the stamped image with the w/c pencils. This stamp set gives the impression of a flat texture on the petals and leaves when you stamp it, and you can create additional depth and colour by using the pencils over parts of the stamped image.

 I also added some Clear Wink of Stella to the petals. Love a little Wink!

This final photo shows you where I have added Pacific Point on top of stamped Old Olive leaves. It just adds a bit of depth to the leaf and I love to see lots of colour in botanical images. After all nature is full of colour. I used a Blender Pen to blend the small areas of colour.
I've left some of the strokes in the flower petals un-blended (is that a word?) as the stronger colour gives greater depth. I used Real Red, Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight w/c pencils over the flower image that had been stamped in Melon Mambo ink. I also added some black.

We did all our additional colouring with the w/c pencils and the blending,  before cutting out the shapes using the Stylish Stems Framelits.

The tag is attached using Whisper White Thick Bakers Twine.

There is one more project to see and I will do a separate post for that one too.

 I cannot finish this post without offering each of you a fabulous opportunity to join Stampin' Up! during Sale-A-Bration. You get all the benefits of being a member of the SU family plus during SAB you can choose 2 additional free stamp sets of your choice. Depending on your choice this can be well over $100 of stamps for free and that is in addition to all the heavily discounted items you choose for your Starter Kit.
Do you like what you see and think you'd like to earn some extra income from stamping?  
If you are looking for a hobby, a part or full time job, working from home and at your own pace, AND you love craft, then you should consider doing what I do. It is fun and rewarding.
