The talented Birgit Edblom has been working her magic with our new release, Festive Wishes! Join us over the next two weeks as she spotlights our new stamps and dies with her trademark inspiring style.
Talk about versatility… a Christmas stamp transformed to a beach scene!
Yep, Birgit transformed the winter scene from our Slapstick/Cling stamp, 40-502 Tranquil, to a beach scene by simply painting sand instead of snow and adding the water in the background.
To create her card, Birgit inked the stamp using permanent grey ink pads, colored onto the tree with green ink, and the rest of the image with dark brown ink. She stamped onto watercolor paper. Once dry, she added shading, as well as the sea, sky and background colors, using watercolor paints. Finally, she stamped her sentiment (30-387 Festive Snippets) and mounted her watercolor panel to her notecard.
And before we go, we’re pleased to announce the winner of our “Festive Wishes 2016” teaser giveaway is…. Karen Hasheck!
