Nearly show time!!!

Hello everyone and lovely to see you here. Tomorrow is the launch of the new and wonderful Aquatints on Create and Craft with demonstrations by Sheena Douglass.

To read more about the tints and see further samples, please click HERE.

Some more samples of what I made below:
 Tints applied with the included brushes. Stamps from the Northern Lights set.
Using the salt technique with the tints, then stamps (from the Northern Lights set) stamped in Walnut Stain Distress inks and then using the faux bleach technique on the rocks to add more depth to them. Flower coloured with the tints.

Background using salt technique again, but this time using coarse salt, so that some texture remains. Wolf white embossed on tissue paper, everything else also coloured with the tints.
Make sure to tune in tomorrow at 9am, trust me, you don't want to miss this!!!

Have a wonderful weekend when it comes, and thanks so much for visiting!

Astrid, once again I am in awe of your creations because your use of colour in each sample is breathtaking.
The drama, especially on the wolf sample is remarkable.

Dorthe said...

They are wonderful all, dear Astrid.
The tints gives beautiful effects when mixed, and the stamps are very special,- I have to have a closer look at Northern Light. The last one you show here, is amazingly beautiful, both with the white wolf and the salt technique ,and your so wonderful colourtones, also on the flower.
Hugs from Dorthe

Birthday Card
Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
