Learn How To Create A Layered Rose Stamp With Stazon Pigment

I have used one of my all-time favorite Rose stamp for today’s card project. I love this stamp because of its realistic layering effect. To achieve this beautiful layering I used a couple of ink types today. I used the Memento Inkpads, our brand new Stazon Pigment inks, Radiant Neon inkpad, and VersaMagic inkpads & I was very happy to see the final outcome and the way they all work together.

Make a Peacock Feather Design with All-Purpose Inks

by Jowilna Nolte

Make a Peacock Feather Design with All-Purpose Inks

The month of March celebrates the beautiful color in Peacock Feathers and with so many ink choices in just the perfect colors, it was hard to choose what to create. But in the end, my love for watercolors and the stunning effects won and I created this art journal page using All-Purpose Inks.

Skill: Intermediate
Time: 30 minutes

Directions


Step 1

Color a sheet of watercolor paper. Paint a layer of water on top and then drop All-Purpose Ink onto the paper to let it mix and flow. Mist with more water to activate and promote flow. Leave to dry.


Step 2

Die-cut a peacock feather using a Silhouette machine. Paint with a layer of gesso and then add color using peacock color shades of All-Purpose Inks and a paint brush.


Step 3

Once the feather is dry, use On Point Glue to adhere the feather to the watercolor paper piece.


Step 4

To add shading and interest, add some grey and brown ink to your craft mat and mist with water, then paint in shadows. Use a graphite pencil for shading even more and adding details.


Step 5

Add some additional stamping and a quote as desired. Then adhere the page into your art journal or frame it as a home decor piece.

Color of the Month is Peacock Feathers

Color of the Month for March is Peacock Feathers! We love this bright teal color and feel it is the perfect color to kick off the spring season. Not quite green, not quite blue, we really feel teal is in its own color category. Along with this beautiful color hitting your eyes all month long, we are featuring a whole new ink line to be announced this Tuesday, March 5th, 2019. So stay tuned for that super fun announcement!

In the meantime, we have a couple of inkpad brands to recommend to add to your teal collection. Try VersaFine Clair in Warm Breeze. It is a beautiful solid stamping ink and will look great for block printing or large surface coverage. If you need a beautiful ink for blending try VersaMagic in Turquoise Gem. The heavy pigment load and long open time are perfect for blending across a background. If you enjoy working with fabric projects then try the Fabrico Marker in Tropical Lagoon.

We hope you try some of these inks, in the meantime here are some sneak peeks for March
