For YOU Madame... with Tamiko

I have the most wonderful set of stamps by Madeline Faiella over at Sin City Stamps.  The set is full of very feminine women that wear adorned head pieces full of flowers and blossoms of the sorts.  I was very anxious to play and color them.  Here is what I call a shabby chic card using just one of the many images on this rubber plate.

The list of the supplies I used include but are not limited to:

  • Madame Rubber Stamp Plate by Madeline Faiella
  • Ranger Archival Ink Pad- Jet Black
  • Derwent Inktense Color pencils
  • Pentel Water brush
  • Water Color Paper 140lbs
  • Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad - Vintage photo
  • Tim Holtz Distress Tool
  • Water Mister
  • Prima Card Stock- Ledger and Fairies
  • Helmar Tacky Glue
  • Helmar Tape
  • Misc flowers, lace trim, flatback pearl trim and embellishments
  • Scissors and paper trimmer

Took my chosen image from the plate of stamps and stamped it with archival ink on 140lb water color paper.  I like stamping on water color paper when i know i plan to get my image wet.  This reason also applies to why I use archival ink pads.  Let it dry.

Then I cut my papers and aged the edges with my distress tool and inked them with vintage photo ink pad.  I also misted the papers to move the ink and make the paper appear worn.  Adhered my papers with Helmar snail and Tacky glue.

Added lave trim and stuck it down with Tacky Glue.

I scrub colors on my water color paper and add them to my image with my water color brush.  I do it that way, because I detest seeing pencil lines in my work. I prefer to see light loose colors.  Don't forget to let your image dry.  I also like inktense in this case, because once the color dries.. it's permanent. 

Then I take my Kuretake Wink of Stella Glitter Brush in Clear and go over various parts of my image to give it a little shimmer.

added some embellishments.. they always make everything extra pretty.

Stamped Madame. Voila Shabby Chic Card!
