PaperArtsy Launch Samples

Yesterday PaperArtsy featured new stamps sets by Elizabeth Borer. 
When Liz asked me to be one of her "wingmen" and produce four samples
for this launch I was both excited to be asked and panic-stricken in
equal measure.  Liz's stamps are gorgeous but very different from
my usual style.  I hope I have managed to do justice to them.
Check out PaperArtsy blog where you will see all Liz's
amazing artwork plus a video by Leandra featuring
her artwork and samples.
Here is my first sample. I used Fresco paints and matt glaze for and around
the image.  For the background I used a purple paint through a stencil over a
brayered background.  For the larger background I used the ribbon
swirl stamp over soft flower stamped images.
The Second sample from the same stamp set. I wanted to keep the image as the
focal point and used the other stamps from the set to highlight this.
Stamp Set EEB03
We are lucky enough to have Liz as a member of our craft club, so
wish her huge success with her new stamp launch.
More in the next post.
