More new stamps...

Hello and welcome to my blog today,

I recently bought some of the new Paperbabe stamps and a couple of the templates for creating faces. I had a bit of a play with them in my watercolour paper journal and here is the result:

I started by creating the outline for my girl using the templates from Paperbabe stamps which I bought from Etsy then using the coordinating stamps for her facial features.

Here she is at the start, I extended her body down a little bit to the bottom of my page. Then started adding colour to her using a combination of Prima watercolour pencils and the Spectrum Noir pencils along with their blending solution.


Then I added the background around her using Distress inks in Fossilised Amber and Abandoned Coral. I then over stamped using Paperartsy Hot Pick Xtra 06 which is lots of days and months of the year. I stamped these in Ranger white pigment ink and then also in the Abandoned Coral in places.

And then she was all finished :)

Very happy with my first attempt at using the templates!

I'd like to link my page to the following challenges:
