Today I'm sharing some projects I've made with the Carved Flowers stamp set:
This is a stamp set that I designed for Darkroom Door. You can read more about the process on how I designed these stamps here.
My first project is a spread in my Art Journal, I call it Dream Garden:
A Dream Garden in my art journal, stamped with the Carved Flowers
set from Darkroom Door.
The Carved Flowers
are stamped with Distress Inks and cut out. I drew the stamens with a Distress Marker.
I used gel medium to glue a bunch of tiny Prima flowers to the pages.
The pages are painted with acrylic paint.
I added texture by pressing a ball of crumpled paper into the wet paint.
Next layer is done with gesso and a stencil from The Crafter's Workshop.
Then I stamped Darkroom Door's French Script
Background with Archival Ink.
The small spiral stamp is one of my hand carved stamps.
The stems are hand cut.
Darkroom Door products I used:
Next are some tags I have made:
The tags are colored with Distress Inks on a craftsheet. On the "Enjoy" tag I used Rusty Hinge and Picked Raspberry. I stamped the Stone Background
with Distress Ink too.
I stamped the flowers with Ranger Archival ink #Jet Black. To make the stems a bit longer, I used the stamp upside down. I love that the stamps come in two sizes in this set. I used them both here.
On this second tag I did the background with Barn Door and Ripe Persimmon Distress Inks, and stamped the Criss Cross Background:
I used the large and small flower stamp from the set. I also used the stamp upside down to make the stem a bit longer on the tall flower. Very easy, I even didn't use a stamp positioner.
Other stamps I used are from the Ornate Elements set, Notre Dame
. To finish off the tag I used QuicKutz Photo Corners and a scap of corrugated cardboard.
Darkroom Door stamps:
I watercolored the flower with Distress Inks. Then I masked the flower to stamp the background with the Dots
Ranger Distress Ink #Fired Brick
and Crushed Olive
were used to watercolor the flower, and to stamp and ink the background.
On this card I stamped the large flower with French Ultramarine Archival ink, overstamped with the Damask Background stamp
and doodle with a black pen. Words on the tiny tags are from the All Occasions
stamp set. The flower is stamped with Ranger Archival Ink
To stamp these flowers I swiped the inkpads on a craftsheet, sprayed water, and used this to ink up my stamp. It gave the stamped flower a watercolored look. Then I overstamped with Black Archival ink.
Thanks for looking!
