JustRite Stampers is previewing their Winter CHA releases this week and next week! If you missed yesterday’s preview, you can see all the samples at the JustRite Inspiration Blog! Today’s preview is this new JustRite Clear set, Just Keep Calm:
It’s a HUGE set -- 6” x 8”, with all those pretty frames that coordinate with JustRite's brand new custom Medallion Label dies manufactured by Spellbinders!
Also being featured today is this pretty JustRite Cling Shabby Music Background. It's oversized (4.50" x 5.75"), so it will fill an entire cardfront. I love the distressing already built in for you around the edges!
I combined the background with yesterday’s preview of JustRite Clear With Sympathy set -- love those roses!
I’m loving using gray lately, and like it combined with pastels (and especially pink)! I stamped the musical background with Weathered Wood (gray) Distress Ink onto Copic’s X-Press It Blending Card (it is super smooth and great for regular stamping as well as coloring) and then airbrushed the background with Copic YR20:
Next, I stamped and colored the roses with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Copic’s X-Press It Blending Card and colored with the Copic markers shown below, to resemble peace roses (the markers with the dots on the caps are the new 2012 colors coming next month!). I did a comparison of the new Copic colors earlier this week, showing you where they fit in with the existing Copic color spectrum -- you can find that post HERE.
The B0000 was used to airbrush the background behind the roses. I usually don’t bother masking off something like these roses -- I just carefully spray around them. With a color this light (B0000), it usually doesn’t affect the other colors very much, if you happen to get a little overspray on them!
The roses were then carefully die cut with a Spellbinders Classic Circle Nestabilities die, and then the extended leaf hand cut out and adhered back onto the image, for a faux "out-of-the-box" technique look!
The N4 Copic marker (neutral gray) was used to color white seam binding. Then I placed the colored seam binding into a baggie and dropped Copic Colorless Blender Solution inside the bag, onto the ribbon, then squished the ribbon around to distribute the Blender Solution. This will “bleach out” parts of the ribbon color, giving it that variegated shabby hand-dyed look!
I cut apart the original long sentiment and stacked it so it would fit on the small tag. It’s also airbrushed with Copic YR20.
These JustRite designers also have previews to share with you today:
I'll be back tomorrow with another JustRite Winter CHA release preview!
