The latest offering from artist Sam Pickard is a perfect stamp set to have on hand to let your friends in need know that you care. This 4 by 6" set features a beautiful bunch of Anemone flowers, a single stem, plus five beautifully scripted sentiments all with a calm and caring message.
On to my creation....
When I saw this image, I saw it bathed in sunlight and with more of a sketchy, watercolor feel. Even though I picked up my Copics to color this image, I wanted that loosey, goosey look -- one without precision. So... here goes! I stamped the Anemones on Flourishes White Card Stock, trimmed, paper pierced and then had some fun with my Copic markers. See below for the three collections that I used. After I finished coloring up my image, I did sponge some Distress Ink in the shade of Scattered Straw. From there, it's just matting up my image! I layered a couple patterned papers onto both Flourishes Classic White and Classic Black. Add some silver cording and... almost done! I did stamp my sentiment using Versafine Black Onyx so that my sentiment would really pop. If you've never tried that ink -- it is a super true black. you can't use it with Copic markers because it will smear, but for single things like sentiments -- works perfect!
