Terri
Terri created a cute card using the new dinky female face stamps and templates. The purples and blues in the inspiration picture influenced the choice of colours used for the hair and background. The sentiment "Don't be afraid to sparkle" was heat embossed in turquoise.



Delphine
Delphine made a card using the Profile Face Left Dinky stamp set combined with the Over Shoulder Long Waves Stencil. She coloured everything using Graph'O watercolour pens and Inktense pencils. She used the turquoise flower from the photo as inspiration for the colour of her background, the added gold splatters on it and the doodled flowers on her girl's top.



Kim
Kim's mixed media piece was created using the rabbit hole frame and the Dinky girl was drawn and painted directly onto dura-lar to create a floating, layered garden, adorned with flowers stamped on book pages, the sentiment was very fitting.

Introducing ~ Dinky Face Stamps and Mixed Media Templates

Good morning, so pleased to have you back for today's samples, created with our new Dinky stamp and template release...

This first project I was totally inspired by this (now vintage) paper collection that has now been unpacked and wanted to be used, lol! I started by making these cute envelopes and designed a notecard that coordinated with each... distress oxides colours coordinate so well. I used stencils to replicate some of the patterns, as well as using the ink as a watercolour to colour my stamped and drawn images. I liked to draw the image flowing to the back of the cards too.

Which is your favourite? I like them as a set and can easily see these replicated in different colour ways, a fabulous go to... for another day I think!

Now onto my next Project...

Here's a little peek into my desk set up for a bit of a mass stamping just so I could sit and watch a film with my DD and trim them out, so now they're cut ready for a project another time. This is definitely play time, you can add as much or as little details as you want, you can use a pen directly around the mylar template for quick drawing. Stamp some accent images too and store in an envelope. It was so fun to play around and there's even a card made using one.

This is also a fantastic exercise in using the templates and stamps and really trying them out without using precious cardstock, these were scraps from the notecards I made earlier so, a win win.

More samples...

This is one of the newest hairstyles and I have to say it's becoming one of my favourites... it can be used with the portrait face too(have a look in one of the pics above and you'll see in one of my image cuts). I used to have big red hair when I was younger. She's painted with Daniel Smiths w.colors, stamped in distress oxides for a soft outline and pencil for the template part. I thought it would be fun to give her a golden crown, loving the Gansai starry colors.



Pop by the lovely Kerrie as she has some samples as does the talented Lozzy to show too.

Thanks so much for stopping by and getting to the end of this long post. 
We hope you feel inspired and would love to see you tomorrow for our newest challenge using the new release...

 Enjoy a wonderfully creative day!
