Magical Crafting with Birgit

May 28, 2018

Over the next several weeks our designers and crafty friends will be joining us to share their creations featuring our newest collection of stamps and Creative Dies, Nature’s Art.

This week we bring you the stamped and die cut artwork of Birgit Edblom with an empahsis on her wonderful watercolor creations.

To begin, Birgit has created a magical card featuring our cling stamp, 40-618 Rose Bowl.

To ground her image and create a simple scene, Birgit combined her floral stamping with our Creative Dies, 51-420 Bloom Magical and 51-441 Wood Floors.

Birgit’s Watercolor Design Details: To create her watercolor cards, Birgit uses Waterford High White HP watercolor paper. For stamped outline-style images, she stamps them using Archival ink and then paints them in. If they are fussy cut, she often applies a light layer of Distress Ink around the outer edges using an ink blending tool and a foam pad, applying the ink after the image has been cut out. Her die cut pieces are also cut from Waterford High White HP watercolor paper. Her images and die cuts are painted with Daniel Smith watercolors. For some cards, to add white highlights to the stamped or die cut images, she uses a white gel pen.
