Art Neko stamps


I have some great news.
I have been asked to be in the Design Team
These stamps are with Oriental designs.
As Design Team we will start in July, when 
there is a new website and a blog,
meanwhile, I will be sharing some cards
on my own blog to get your attention!

Here is my first card:
Art Neko has no coffee stamps, but Eastern tradition has a lot 
of tea cermonial, so tea stamps there are a lot! 
Will also be great for the coffe/tea hop that will be here soon.
This stamp you see here is called Table set for tea
and you can find it HERE.

As I am not very well in coloring, I used this stamp in
a different way and this is how I made the background:

First the paper is colored with fossilized amber distress
ink and a blending tool.

Next I cut out of a piece of scrap a circle and
used this as a mask to color the sunset with
carved pumpkin distress ink and a blending tool.

This was too plain for me.

So firdt I coverd the sun with a paper circle and on
top I put the rays stencil and colored again with 
fossilized amber distress ink.

Now the panel was ready for stamping.
I stamped the image on top with black onyx
versafine ink.

On the finished card you see the teapot is colored
vintage brown. I cut it out from a piece of scrap paper
and added it with foam tape, to give the picture some 
dimention. With glue a few sequins are added.

Thank you for looking.

Wat leuk dat je bij Annette & Barry in het team bent gevraagd. Gefeliciteerd hoor.
Annette heeft al heel lang de oriental stamp art groep, waar ik ook al heul lang lid van ben. Ben heel benieuwd wat je gaat doen allemaal
