Monday Mash Up - Fifty Shades of Blue - 21

Monday Mash Up – Fifty Shades Of Blue And A Rabbit

First of all, let me just explain the title – it has nothing to do with THOSE BOOKS or THAT THING, but now that I have your attention, you might like to read about some rubber stamping that I have been doing this week?

After you’ve cooled down.

This post begins some time ago when I availed myself of the Woodlands Scenes clear stamp set from Hobby Art stamps however since then they have been on the “come on, have a go with me, you know you want to” pile ever since.

I wish that I had listened to them earlier.

On my first play with these stamps and I tried out several colouring experiments and I really enjoyed what I did.

Having a series of ideas already going through my head I also started to make the masks that would help me build up some scenes later on.

I then tried out a scene by stamping the mouse, then masking him off, and then adding more of the scene.

I then used Lyra pencils to colour this in.

I wasn’t 100% happy with this one so I started again, this time working directly onto a tag.

Having repeated the masking and stamping, this is where I got to.

Yup, happy with the layout. Now to add colour.

I used alcohol markers to add some shading to the lower grass area and the bushy area to the left.

It’s subtle but you can just about make it out.

I then set about using the spectrum noir pencils to add more highlights and lowlights – and ended up with this.

He’s kinda cute isn’t he?

That’s where I left that project for now as I had another idea that I wanted to try.

    • Just use the offset tool. It’s a button on the toolbar that looks like two circles sitting in top of each other.
      The canvas help PDF will explain more if you need it.
