Hello Everyone, I hope you are having a great day. We had freezing rain overnight, it looks quite magical outside with heavy ice everywhere! I hope the buds on our flowering trees are strong enough to survive.
We are very excited about Designs by Ryn's new Water Effects stamps that have just been launched.
Ryn's popular Waterdroplets have been flying off her shelves and I'm sure these Rain Drops will too, they are so cool !
To create the background I started with water colour paints - wet on wet (tutorial here). I added a little salt in a couple of spots for added texture. After letting it dry I stamped Patio Stone with Seedless Preserves, Shaded Lilac & Salty Ocean Distress Inks. Next I blended Seedless Preserves & Salty Ocean DI over Studio Calico's Circle Graph Stencil. I stamped the Rain Drops with Black Soot Distress Ink and highlighted with a white Gelly Roll pen.
I embossed Black Eye Susan with black, coloured with my Tom Bow markers, added glitter and cut out as shown. The sentiment that works perfectly with the Rain Drops is from Chocolate Baroque's Loving Sentiments set.
Design by Ryn's stamps are extremely high quality, deeply etched, they stamp out beautiful every time. If you are interested in purchasing Ryn's stamps, please visit her webstore for more information. Also Ryn's Facebook page is updated ongoing with lots of inspiration & the Design Team Blogs are posted on my sidebar.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the weekend,
