Today we welcome Jill Foster. We are so excited to have her showcase her work today on Paper Crafter’s Library. You can see Jill’s fabulous project below, but first, here is a little more about her:
Always looking for fresh inspiration, Jill turns stamped images into true works of art. As her “Inspired By” blog followers know, Jill has a beautiful style and an unparalleled love of paper crafting. She also designs for Penny Black stamps and loves to share her passion for paper, color and stamping through video and photo tutorials.
Love and Color in the Garden
Happy spring, my friends! Jill here and I’ve been working on my garden… well, the garden of flowers in my studio, that is! Have you started planting yet?
To color my image, I first began by stamping it using my black Stamper’s Big Brush Pen. Because the ink from the pen is india ink, it will be waterproof once dry– perfect for painting! I colored my image using Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils, adding the color in the darkest areas first and then blending and spreading the color with water. I wanted to create a golden glow around the flowers. To do so I colored lightly onto this area of my project using a Butterscotch Gelato® and then blended it with my fingertip. Finally, I added fun splatters to the piece by coloring with a Nougat Stamper’s Big Brush Pen onto my acrylic block, adding water, and then flicking the color onto the piece using a paint brush.
Well, even though I don’t have a green thumb in my backyard, at least I can do some “planting” with my Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft “seeds.” Hugs and Happy Stamping!
