Sneak Peek – Darling Little Ones
These sweet little darlings are part of the Antiquated Collection Spring Release sets and are the perfect size for ATC’s. And I might also add they are to scale with the ladies and gentlemen from Fine and Dandy, Society Lady and Stylish and Fashionable stamp sets. This means you can group them together with mom and dad holding them. I am so thrilled with all the detail Judi was able to keep of the image while she did all her computer clean up magic. The one thing I love about my stamp sets are their detail and for clear stamps that is really something.
I stamped the baby image onto watercolor paper using Jet Black Archival Ink. Then using the new ever so popular Tim Holtz Distress Markers, I colored in and around the image using Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy, Mustard Seed, Spun Sugar and Broken China. I only added color along the wrinkles on the dresses then using a Tim Holtz Detailed Water Brush I allowed the the water to move the color, creating subtle shading. Once the paper was dry I went back in and highlighted the wrinkles by darkening them just a bit with the same colored Distress Marker. For the background I added color using the Distress Markers and blended the color around the babies using both the Tim Holtz Broad Water Brush for the larger areas and the Detailed Water Brush as I got closer to the stamped image.
Once the piece was dry I then went in and accented areas of the dresses using Diamond Stickles. Now I have a perfect embellishment for a card or tag.
