Funky Fossil Designs New Stamp Preview - Geo Bugs

This Saturday, 27th June at 9am Funky Fossil Designs will be launching five fabulous new stamp sets.  Funky Fossil will also be on Hochanda TV the same day at 3pm with a selection of lovely goodies.  Don't forget to tune in or set your planner.

For this sample, I have used the brand new stamp set called "Geo Bugs".

I started by masking off the bulb area using the Funky Fossil "Lightbulb Aperture" stencil and covering the area around the bulb with "Antique Linen" Distress Oxide Ink.  I then layered the Funky Fossil "Sunray" stencil over the bulb area and secured with low tack tape.  I filled the exposed rays with "Mustard Seed" and "Wild Honey" Distress Oxide Inks.

I lifted off the two stencils and swapped for the exterior part of the lightbulb stencil, filling the bulb area with three shades of blended Distress Oxide inks:  Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed and Wild Honey.  For the metal screw area of the bulb, I used "Weathered Wood" Distress Oxide Innk and Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink.

I stamped each moth twice, in the position on the card and also on plain white card.  I head embossed the moth images on the white card and then coloured the moths with Signo and Sakura pens.  I then fussy cut the moths and adhered over the images stamped on the card base.

Finally, I added sentiments stamped in Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink and outlined the light bulb using a white Posca Pen.
