For those not familiar with Wendy's stamps, they come pre-cut and mounted on EZ mount foam. There are different size sets including one of the latest additions (which I love!) which is the single background stamps.
For this project I started with a piece of grey board pre-covered in white card. I then used acrylic paint and a baby wipe to start adding some colour and blending the colours together. Make sure you dry between layers else it gets rather muddy!
I then used the Vintage Mesh background stamp without an acrylic block and stamped it randomly using Fern Green Archival ink.
Next up I used the daisy stamp from the Daisy Art set but this time stamped it with Acrylic paint. I wanted to achieve a more subtle background. I also used the Wendy Vecchi Dots and Stripes Borders stencil, again using acrylic paint.
Before I stamped the flower I did some second generation stamping using the grassy stamp form the Art Comforts set using Fern Green Archival ink. I then stamped the flower from the Wendy Vecchi Forever Art set and painted it with acrylic paint. As the paints I'm using are translucent it makes painting much easier as you can paint over your stamped image and still see the stamping!
I decided I needed some texture so mixed some Wendy Vecchi Embossing Paste with some acrylic paint and used the Classic Words stencil to add the numbers.
I stamped the butterfly from the Art for You set and again painted it with translucent acrylic paint. I also stamped the butterfly onto some Clearly for Art modelling film, cut it out and heated it so I could shape the wings.
The sentiment is from the Metro Art set stamped on to a piece of card that I've painted using a baby wipe and acrylic paint.
I punched two holes using a Cropodile and used Jump Rings so that I could attach some twine.
You can see more clearly in the above photo the Clearly for Art butterfly.
Here's a close up of the texture created with the Wendy Vecchi Embossing Paste.
The above project was also made using similar techniques, however the substrate for this was playing cards!
I hope you've enjoyed today's focus on Wendy Vecchi's stamps and as there's now 15% off on all in-stock Wendy Vecchi stamps for the next week. What better time to stock up!
