Realistic Stamp Layering
All the details for the layer stamping technique are in my video, but I do want to share my inspiration photos and additional information.
I brought Altenew Build-A-Flower: Sweet Violet Stamp & Die Bundle to life today. The shapes of pansies, violets, and viola are similar, thus I reviewed photos of each variety for inspiration.
Penny Primrose Viola
I enjoy color mixing while layer stamping and the transition between purple and yellow on the bottom petal appealed to me. Even nature gets a little muddy from time to time!
Here’s my version. I’d love to know what you think, let me know in the comments below or on YouTube!
Pansies, violets, and violas sit atop a bed of leaves. Usually, you don’t see the stems, but see the flowers extending towards you as in the inspiration photo.
I considered how I could get varying levels of extension aside from doubling and tripling foam adhesive.
I found some action wobblers and they were perfect to vary the level of dimension and add motion too!
Tiger Eye Viola
This is the coolest flower! I love the pattern and wanted to draw it immediately!
I drew the details with a Walnut Polychromos pencil and used varying levels of pressure to create lighter and darker lines.
One of these blooms claimed my last action wobbler and I added extra dimension by curling the petals upwards.
I’d like to thank Justine for inviting me to hop along with her and so many crafty friends! Many thanks to you for hanging with me today!
