Good evening crafters!! well I am back! in an attempt to get this little blog up to date and bang on track!! so....tonight I'm going to Share with you my Sheena design Team samples from the Torn range! I adore the concept of these stamps, they are just brilliant! so much you can do with them , the detail is just outstanding too! which after all when hand drawn by Sheena herself and then made by Crafters Companion...we would expect nothing less!! If you want to check the stamps out on line you can find them over on the crafters Companion website just HERE!!
So this new range of Torn stamps Sheena brought out in 2 releases, these I'm sharing this evening are the second lauch that you may have not long seen on Hochanda, I'll share the first lot tomorrow ( I'm working backwards remember!! ;) ) AND I am extremely proud to say that for ALL the torn stamps I did the colouring for the packaging too! so I was well chuffed!!,here we go, 6 fabulous designs, 5 with an image behind and then one stamp set with the edges and corners etc all the neccessary elements to create your backgrounds and complete the look!my favourite is the EYE!!! amazing I love it so much!, and I just HAD to change it up a little and make into an Alien type witchy type of card!! brillinat!!
so all my images are coloured in with Spectrum Aqua pens and then my backgrounds are all Distress inks, photos show the cards as being quite flat but are actually 3D in parts.
To help create all the shading I used my favourite drawing gum over the stamped images first so I could add some dramatic blending and shading just in the right places on each one, absolutely love that stuff!! then simply rub away to colour in the main image.
thank you thank you THANK YOU for stopping by and checking out my cards and reading my ramblings. It really is very much appreciated!!
I shall be back tomorrow with the FIRST launch of Torn range.... the skull is totally fantastic!!!
