Trees and Flowers by Nikki Acton


Hi everyone. Today I am sharing some 4x4 inch white/greyboard panels featuring the wonderful new quote stamps by Alison Bomber. I am sure a lot of you are aware of Alison’s fabulous art but also her amazing literary eloquence – and these quotes have been selected by her for the new PaperArtsy Eclectica stamp range.

There are two sets – EAB01 – Tree and Flowers (used today) and also EAB02 – Darkness and Light, each featuring 9 quotes. You can see more details here.

I began by brayering various Fresco paints onto the white surface – just building up colour – always leaving some of the previous colour showing. (List of colours below). I then sponged a little more paint through 2 Dinky stencils – Punchinella and Small Circles. A little stamping completed the backgrounds using Lin Brown’s stamp set (ELB 30) – the wonderful grass and text stamp.

While brayering my surface I also had some scrap card next to me which I used to clean my brayer but also for stamping my leaves (ELB 31 and 29) and fabulous quotes. These were stamped in Archival ink and fussy cut.

 See you next week!
