I'm hurrying Spring along over in the CLASSroom today! I hope you'll join me there to see how I used my Copic Various Ink Refills to "water" color these beautiful Bold Blooms stamps by Julie Ebersole for Essentials by Ellen.
Hello, and welcome to the Winter 2015 Essentials by Ellen Release Hop! I’ll be showcasing several of the new stamp sets and dies on my post today, starting with this beautiful Fancy Thanks stamp set and Folk Hearts designer dies, on a Copic Various Ink background (all bold products are linked below in the supply section):
I adore the shape of Julie's Folk Heart dies and the fonts in the Fancy Thanks stamp set are simply gorgeous! Here's how I created the background:
1. Squeeze out Copic Various Ink Refill RV63 onto a scrap piece of acetate (to use as a palette). Using a 1" Round Ink Blending Tool, pick up the ink from the acetate palette, thoroughly saturating the foam pad. Pounce the ink onto a piece of Ranger's Specialty Stamping Paper. The surface of this paper is very slick/slightly coated, so the ink won't immediately soak into the paper -- this allows the ink to remain wet longer, and for it to be moved around a little. (You could also use glossy paper). No need to completely cover the cardstock, and you want to leave the look of the round blending tool ... it is creating a bokeh affect!
2. Repeat the color pouncing process, using Copic Various Ink Refill RV66.
3. Next, to give the background a little glitz and add to the bokeh affect, I pounced on Delicata Golden Glitz pigment ink.
I'm so excited to share a sneak peek of Julie Ebersole's newest release of Essentials by Ellen clear stamps and dies today (releasing on Monday)! Over on Ellen Hutson's the CLASSroom, I share you how I watercolored these cuties -- I hope you'll join me there! Then I'll be back on Monday with some more projects for the big release blog hop we'll be having!
