Paperartsy Launch Samples for Elizabeth Borer

Today I have two more stamp samples used for the launch
on Wednesday on PaperArtsy blog of 4 new Art Nouveau style
stamp sets by Elizabeth Borer.
Check out PaperArtsy blog to see Liz's
artwork and samples and a video by Leandra.
In this sample I used 2 of the new purples in the new Fresco range
along with yellow paints and stamps from EEB06. The background
beneath the image used two purples with a stencil. 
I created the background beneath that with a brayer and various
 purples and yellows and finally stamping a flower image.
The final sample I decided to feature just the flower and stem on a tag.
For the simple background I again used a brayer to combine various colour
Fresco paints and then added a touch of Nougat to knock back the bright
purples used.

Until next time....

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.

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.
