Good morning all! Today I am so excited to show you how much fun I have been having with the ‘Terrific Turtles’ new stamp release from Jess Craft Digitals! This stamp is available today for only $1 at the etsy store https://www.etsy.com/shop/JessCraftsShop.
I used the stamp in PNG format and created thes background pieces in Word. There is the Terrific Turtle with glasses and the one with sunglasses. I resized them, flipped them vertically and horizontally to make a background full of turtles!! They are just so damn cute! For this card I die cut out various sized circles to add to the card and resized the main image to be larger and coloured it using Touch Five markers. I used some glittery washi tape from my stash to ground him on and cut out a sentiment, also from the stamp set and coloured this with a marker.
Here are some close up shots;
I have a number of other ideas to try out with these backgrounds, but one I did try was using Distress Inks to watercolour the background. I didnt mind the way it turned out, but perhaps next time I’ll try a different kind of watercolour.
I also took some of the Costumed Cat stamps and did the same things and created a background with them. Whilst I havent finished with them, I wanted to show you how I had masked one of the larger cats, coloured the background using Distress inks and then plan to colour this large cat as a special feature on the card.
I hope you enjoyed these ideas and can see how versatile and flexible digital stamps can be! Be sure to check out the etsy store at https://www.etsy.com/shop/JessCraftsShop and the Jess Crafts blog at http://blog.jesscrafts.com/.
