Sneek Peak – Abstract Impressions

Stampin’ Up! Abstract Impressions Stamp Set, Hand Coloured Roses from Ink Paper Girl with Katrina Duffell Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Sydney Australia

Oh Hello there!!

How are you? What have you been up to since we last caught up?

I’ve been busy working on a couple of special projects, using some of the fabulous new stamp sets & products, that are in the upcoming Stampin’ Up! 2018- 2019 Annual Catalogue….& can I just say…it’s AMAZING.

So because tomorrow is Mother’s Day here in Australia, I decided I’d give you a present, &  feature one of the fabulous new stamp sets in today’s blog post.

That’s right..you’re getting a sneak peek at the Abstract Impressions stamp set.

It’s a really lovely photopolymer stamp set, that has loads of potential.

You can choose to simply stamp & create some really great cards with it, just like the blue flowers in the card in the top right hand corner ……. CLICK HERE to see the set of blue note cards that I made using this set.

OR…..You can let your imagination run wild & come up with something like my hand detailed, hand coloured orange roses.

Now I’m not going to lie, this card took me quite a while to complete…mostly because I was slow in deciding where & how to form my petals. Plus I am prone to procrastination & if I’m really honest I was also binge watching the TV series Broadchurch, on Netflix at the same time as colouring…I do enjoy a good TV crime drama.

I did remember to take some progress pics along the way, so that I could share them with you. You can see them below.

Top Tips: If you want to try this for yourself, let the light & dark ink colours guide you on where to place your highlights & shadows. I used Stampin’ Up! watercolour pencils in similar colours to the ink  which really helped make my shading look smoother.

And here’s the finished project….

I hope I’ve inspired you to try something new with your next project…

Much Love, K xo
