Carabelle Studio's Let Leonie Loose Show

I think I'm definitely addicted to these stamps!  The designs are so cool, and different.  I really like working with them.  I thought I would share a few samples from last weeks show.  Check the web site, I'm sure we still have the stamps in stock if you did miss out on them. I was also able to play with some cool paints from Deco Art.  The first sample you can see the stunning iridescent paints.  I used masking tape to create my frame, painted black gesso, and then stamped and embossed my images.  I then painted over the gesso with the iridescent paint.

DecoArt have also brought out spritzers, which are permanent and fantastic for layering, making them perfect for mixed media.  For this card I simply used them for a blast of colour, and then used my little character stamp clutching his star balloon.

The floral stamps are fantastic for layering, and the DecoArt Tinting medium is nice to drag the distress ink to colour the flowers.  This gives a more opaque finish than when the colour is dragged out with water.

For this one I used the DecoArt crackle paint through a Andy Skinner mask.  When the paint was dry, I worked over the background with the paints.  The background stamp is fantastic, and for this image I just used one of the flowers and a few of the little circles.

This is the full background stamp.  It's so cool.  There's so much detail.  With this one I used the sentiment which I threaded under the largest flower, and then stamped onto the smaller flower, so it appears that the sentiment is flowing onto the flower

Finally - this guy!  Cool isn't he.  I used the DecoArt paints to create my background, along with the stamps, and the mask.  I used the same paints to colour my little chap in.

I've got the catalogue to plan some more Carabelle shows......this makes me very happy :) xx

I'm delighted you're addicted to Carabelle Studio stamps. I've loved them since I first saw them and I buy them when I can. You are such a super and genuine crafter that I record all the LLL shows. Great ideas, samples and introductions to various products I may not have tried before.
