Sneak Peek — Darling Little Ones

May 10, 2012

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.
