day 5 - direct to stamp Poppies


I saw this technique first at a convention where joyce hazen was demoing it at the stamp in the hand booth. she is amazing with it. So of course I have several of their stamps. Its simple and pretty fast. Start with glossy paper and marvy markers and marker directly on the stamp. start with the lightest color first because you will go over parts and don't be afraid to do that. In nature nothing is a solid color. Then huh on it a bit and place onto the glossy paper.



Next I stippled (Have I mentioned I like to stipple?) some sky. I added some ground with a stampscapes stamp and some grass from an old FOAM mounted stampin up stamp that has lots its set somewhere in my room so I don't know the name of it.



then layered it on cardstock. simple simple but oh so pretty. I did about 6 of these in a matter of an hour including photographing them.
