Carabelle A4 Stamps

These are just LUSH.  I've fallen in love with Carabelle Studio stamps anyway...but the A4 ones are amazing.

The tree stamp, everyone fell in love with, it is tremendous.  I'll share what I did with it.

Because the stamp is so big, it allows you to play with colours on the actual rubber.  I "inked" up the stamp using my Distress Paint Daubers, I used the brown and then the blue.  I then spritzed onto the stamp with the ink spritzer, which is yellow, and blends the paints wonderfully.  The acrylic block is A4, so fits the stamp perfectly.  I then used the Distress Crayons on the edge of the card, and dragged the ink across with a wet paintbrush.  This gives a lovely soft background blend.  Use watercolour card for the best results.

This time, I stamped the tree with staz-on, but I wanted a more subtle and misty effect, so I gave my card a wash with DecoArt Tinting Medium.  This is lovely, as it gives it a subtle wash. I stamped over the top of the tree with the beautiful faery, and coloured her in with Distress Crayons.  I love this.

These are so awesome, I really love the tree. I started a Carabelle Stamp wish list but I've now crossed it out and put ALL Carabelle stamps! Looking forward to today's shows. Creative Blessings, Tracy x
