Today I'm going to show you how to create a landscape using one ink pad, a few stamps and some torn paper. It's a card I taught my stamping class , I promised therefore that I would post instructions so they can refer to it for future reference.
I would like to thank Barbara Grey of Clarity stamps for all her inspiration she has given me over the years.
Things you will need:Splodge Matt (available from Claritystamps see link below.)
Encaustic art card.A5 size with 3cm trimmed from a short edge and long edge.I do this so I know I will have "space" to matt and layer and mount on to a A5 card.
Brayer, I use a speedball as I find this the best.
Selection of stamps, I've used A big tree, small tree, Balloon's, and flock of birds.All my stamps are from Clarity.Link here. http://shop.claritystamp.co.uk/
Adirondack Earthtones dye based ink pad:Meadow.
Small punch to cut mask from post it. I used a x-cut punch. This produces a 2.3 cm circle for my sun.
Roll your brayer over the splodge mat to evenly distribute the ink over the mat.
Now ink up the larger of the balloons and stamp once on to scrap paper and stamp on to your artwork..
Do the same for the big tree, using the photo as a guide.
