Your Next Stamp Guest Designing - DAY 2


Hey there, I am back with my second card of my guest designing for Your Next Stamp! I created a "Get well" card with the "Sea Friends" set again. How adorable is that word pun??


I stamped the whale from the „sea friends“ set and colored it with aqua marker pens. The tiny dot details are made with an edding pen called „Pastel Pen-Soft white“ it is not that bright like for example a posca pen - it stays a bit transluscent, I really like that effect . I cut out some water fountains by hand from a piece of vellum and adhered it to the blowhole… I love adding details like that :-)

So my ocean on the background panel is made with distress oxides - this time I used blueprint sketch, cracked pistachio and wilted violet. But first I heat embossed the fun sentiment „get whale soon“ with white embossing powder. Maybe you are interested how I created those waves; so I made a step by step photos of the process. Beside the oxides you need a wave stencil, a water sprayer, white pigment ink, a permanent white pencil and that edding pastel pen I already used before for the whale. 

First I spritzed some water on the whole panel to create some splashes for more texture. Let this dry completely before you continue with the next step. Your heatgun might be helpful getting your panel completely dry very quickly. So here comes the waves. First, I stenciled some white pigment ink onto my panel. Then I used the white pencil to brighten up the area even more and make it kind of „sealed“. Because now I used the pastel pen marker to draw little dots along the wave shape and this one is wet again. if you use it without the white pencil in between, the white dots would absorb completely the color of the distress oxides; this can be pretty, but I wanted to stay them soft white. I hope this helps you to recreate that look.

So here comes the photo guide for this procedure:
