Wineglass Bay

Hello stampers! Today I have two cards to share using the new Darkroom Door Wineglass Bay photo stamp. I love all the Darkroom Door photo stamps and this one is no exception, such a beautiful image and the stamped detail is amazing.

For my first card, I stamped Wineglass Bay on glossy cardstock with Jet Black Archival Ink. I find that the combination of glossy cardstock and Archival Ink gives the very best detail when it comes to photo stamps. The scene was coloured with Distress Inks, using a Colorbox Stylus Tool to apply the ink. You can use another type of ink applicator too, but I like the control I get with the Stylus Tool. For a colouring tutorial, check out this post of mine, where I show how to colour photo stamps with six different mediums.

For the background, I stamped the Corrugated Iron background with Orange Blossom Archival ink and layered everything on a Core'dinations cardstock base.

Highlights were added with a white gel pen. White pigment ink was dry-brushed on the scene, to create foam in the water and a little bit of mist in the hills.

For the second card, I stamped Wineglass Bay with Jet Black Archival Ink on the smooth side of Ranger's new watercolour paper. The scene was watercoloured with Distress Inks - smear the ink on your craft sheet, mist once with water and pick up with a paint brush. Again, I used the Corrugated Iron Background, but this time stamped it with Archival Aquamarine. The sentiments come from Venetian Vol. 1.

Thank you for looking!!

Happy stamping!!
