GIVEAWAY DETAILS
Of course, it wouldn’t be a birthday celebration without prizes! Topflight Stamps is giving one lucky winner a $100 Gift Certificate to the store. But wait, there is more, each stop on the hop has an additional $25 Gift Certificate up for grabs for some lucky commenter. For a chance to win, make sure to visit every stop on the hop and leave a comment by March 29th. Winners will be announced on the Topflight Stamps blog on March 31st. Good Luck!
And so here are the details of my birthday card and tag:


I decided to make a tall slim card and matching tag using single layer stamping techniques and Raquel's lovely new stamps to create a feeling of depth.
My video below on single layer stamping with these stamps shows how to use this technique with Raquel's latest stamps and PaperArtsy Paints and Satin Glaze:




I am no painter but it is easy to use these stamps to good effect with either paints or inks.


I used four individual Fresco Finish colours along with Satin Glaze. You will see from the video above how easy it is to combine the glaze and paints to create a lovely silky soft look.


There are some nice small sentiments included in the latest stamp release which work well on tiny tags.

I hope this little set will give you some ideas and inspiration for using these PaperArtsy stamps and products, all of which you can get from TopFlight Stamps.

Thank you to Donna and the team for inviting to me to share in the Birthday Celebrations!
Happy crafting!

Jennie, this is a great card, very simple techniques to create a stunning design. I love how you used masking and stamping to create a stamped collage look, and mixing with the paint to create that translucent layer of colour is perfect to colour in images in a card. Tfs

Lovely card!! I have been resisting getting any of the Paper Artsy paint because I fear I will LOVE it and then need all of it; but this technique would work with just a few colors. . . think now is the time to get me some!!

A great use of design! Love how you created a scene by masking several images!

Lynn Hill said...

Your card and tag are great. I love the simple painting technique you shared. Simple is always nice!

L in MN said...

Lovely card. For the first time, I used acrylics for coloring a stamped image but I used white paint and water to lighten and thin the paint. I noticed you used the finish to add shine. I will have to go back and wrote down the name.

I had stamped the image on watercolor paper, which is never as white as Neenah. Your paper looks like card stock paper so I will give that a try next time.

luvhymns said...

Love your delicate flowers and the thought of Paris. Happy Birthday TopFlight!

Ericka Strange said...

Gorgeous card and tag and I love the soft colors you used with the beautiful ribbon!
