Can you believe it’s been one year since Colorado Craft Company debuted Anita Jeram’s illustrations? I have had so much fun this past year creating cards and handmade gifts with her illustrations, and today I have a watercolor project to share, featuring the NEW Big & Bold Twinkle Little Star stamp set. I have lots to share, including details on a giveaway, and a FREE SHIPPING code, so let’s get started.
This is one of three large 6 x 6 stamp sets in this release. The images are large, so I decided to make a frame-able watercolor picture. I stamped a large panel of Arches Hot Press watercolor paper, and stamped the images with my Fiskars Stamp Press. I pulled out a few watercolors, and made a. galaxy background. I worked from the left top corner down, changing my colors from blue/violet, to pink/yellow. I did three layers, then covered the stamped images with masks, and splattered acrylic paint over the panel.
Since the background took awhile to make, I decided I was more comfortable coloring the images with Copic Markers. (I didn’t want to take a chance on messing up the panel!) I stamped the images onto X-Press It blending card with Gina K Black Amalgam ink, and colored them with the following colors: mouse- C4, C2, C0, Colorless Blender; stars- V93, YR23, Y23, YR32. Once finished, I fussy-cut the images, ran a black marker around the edges to hide the white core, and glued them onto the panel.
I am LOVING these large Anita Jeram illustrations, and I know you will too! They’re a great size for 5×7 cards, and handmade gifts.
