BYO Stamps – So Saffron and Balmy Blue By the Dock

This So Saffron and Balmy Blue By the Dock scene is a project from a previous BYO Stamps session. It’s my interpretation of a picture from the old Annual Catalogue.

Using Early Espresso, the only inkpad used in this project, two images from the By the Dock Stamp Set are stamped on the So Saffron pieces. One is on the background piece, the other on the circle. These images are coloured with a mix of Blender Pens and Watercolor Pencils. I’ve used colour for the circle as this is the focus, rather than the background.

Strips of Linen Thread are then wrapped at the top and bottom of the background So Saffron piece and Balmy Blue layers. I like how this gives it a more nautical or rustic style.

A sentiment from the Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set is stamped onto a shape cut from the Stitched Rectangles Dies. This is layered onto the So Saffron Circle and the Crumb Cake ring using Dimensionals.

The front circle is then added using Tear & Tape for a strong fix. You can see how the layers are built using Dimensionals in the picture below.

Why not join me at a future BYO Stamps session. I design three projects, you then recreate those using the stamps and inks you have at home, using as much tuition as you like from me during the live ZOOM class. Head to my Class Timetable for full details.

Don’t forget to take a look at the new Annual Catalogue and the offers available this month.

Happy crafting
