Giveaway alert!! NND is giving away both new stamp sets to lucky winners so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!Knight Owl turned our as a clean and simple card. I used my win win combo for the water based markers: Strathmore Bristol paper, VersaFine Onyx Black ink and a small waterbrush from Pentel. To start, I die cut the owl shape from the coordinating Knight Owl Die set, a branch and a few leaves from Toucan Party Die Set. I used, as always, the negative parts of the dies inside the MISTI tool to help me with the alignment while I was stamping the open images from Knight Owl and Toucan Party stamp sets. Finally I colored all the elements with water based markers.
As always, I’m leaving you all the exact colors used on this project: TOMBOW MARKERS N75, 025, 126, 133, 703, 947, 990 plus Zig Clean Colour Brush marker n. 61 Light Brown.
For the background I prepared a faux stitched circle using Circle Frames Die Set and inked it with Tumbled Glass Distress ink and the blending brush. I also added new just released Houndstooth stencil creating a tone on tone pattern applying the same Tumbled Glass Distress ink with more heavy hand. I stamped the encouraging sentiment from another new Heartfelt Wishes stamp set and started assembling all the elements together on an extended A2 size card base (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″).
Working on my second project, I started in the same exact way with the same exact products I mentioned above. First I used the coordinating Pug-kin Die Set to achieve the whole image plus two additional pumpkins. Next I stamped the open images from Pug-kin stamp set and colored them with Tombow markers.
This is the complete list of colors used by me on this card: TOMBOW MARKERS N79, 025, 055, 133, 177, 905, 912, 925, 933, 946, 947, 969, 990, 992, 993.
The background was die cut from Frames and Flags Die Set; inked with Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers, Blueprint Sketch, Faded Jeans Distress inks and the blending brushes; and then embellished through amazing new Spiderweb Stencil applied with a white embossing paste. I popped the Distress background on an extended A2 size white card base (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) with a bit of dimension, arranged the pumpkins and finished with a few fish-tailed banners die cut from Banner Trio Die Set.
