I hope you are all having a good week.
I am slotting this post in quickly. I am on chick watch again!
Today’s little projects were a little bit of an experiment. I was asked to make up some samples using the fab Whitby Abby Stamp from Crafty Individuals. I have had the stamp for a while but only really used it to make Gothic themed projects for friends.
I was a little bit stumped for ideas at first and also in a bit of a panic because of the deadline I had. You know when you mind just goes blank. Anyway, I visited some of the online art galleries in Whitby and the surrounding area. I found some amazing artwork of the Abbey and I really loved how some of the artists used color. I took inspiration from the artwork I saw and these are the results. I will be revisiting this stamp very soon to try out some of the other ideas I had.
I added the shadow to the trees but then forgot to add it to the front of the ruins. Must remember that in future.
Great images to use for masculine cards as well as the spookylicious time. What a about a Gothic wedding…
On both of these I coloured the background with Distress Inks and then stamped the images using black ink. I then fixed the ink with a spray fixative.
