E is for... Craft Barn Challenge

Two in one day, again!!


So, E is for Elegant (and/or Elegance) and Eye.  I have been thinking for a while about doing some colouring using different media but the same stamp. This was my kickstart to do it!  Thanks to the Craft Barn Challenge!

I used the Hampton Art/Graphic 45 elegant lady stamp.  She's stamped three times, and then coloured with Distress markers, watercolour pencils, and Promarkers.  I kept (ish) to the same colourways, and shading, as far as my supplies would allow.

I (finally) cut into one of my Graphic 45 paper pads for the Ladies' Diary strip on the page behind - maybe now I will start using more of the lovely papers, but I do just like to look at them...

For the eyes, I used a variety of stamps, stamped in versafine and masked, then swooshed and edged with Distress inks.  This extra piece is glued to the main page.  I had created a pounch, but it needed to be bigger, given the height of the stamp tags.

I think this will give me a good reminder of how the various colouring mediums work, and which ink pads to use with which - if I don't write it down, I'll forget!  So it is on the back of each of the tags.
