Whale Done

I am blog hoping with the Stamptastic Friends today with a theme of Favourite Tool. It was so hard to choose one favourite but I went for Blending Brushes which I use often and in many different ways.

Here a blending brush was used to create the lovely background of light and dark blue shades.

I started with a piece of Tahitian Tide cardstock and used my blending brush to add Starry Sky ink. I always build up the colour gradually and swipe the brush from off the edge of the cardstock to avoid any uneven dark spots.

I then stamped the sentiment, reeds and fish. My whale is also stamped in Starry Sky onto white and punched out. I'm sorry to see the Whale Done bundle retire, t has been a fun set to use.

My final bit of stamping, once I had positioned the whale, was the air bubbles above the blow hole.

I used a layer of Sweet Sorbet to contrast against the deep blue and used a different retired punch for the little heart.

Other uses for blending brushes include removing excess ink from a stamp to create a softer look and adding colour through a mask.

I wonder what the other Stamptastic Friends blog hoppers have come up using their favourite tools. You can check them out by clicking on the links below.

I will be back soon with some new products soon to be available from the new annual catalogue at the beginning of May.

Thanks for looking,
