NEW PaperArtsy Products {Hot Picks} August 2018

NEW PaperArtsy Products - August 2018

 Hot Picks Collection {by Mark Franich}

Hot Picks stamps are often the style that people identify as truly 'PaperArtsy'. Our in-house designs created by Mark, since 2003 through to today, are often designed from vintage elements. 

Initially under the Ink and the dog label (a collaboration with Nea Nygard, from Finland), and subsequently since 2010, he progressed to a larger format stamp to meet the needs of journalling and mixed media enthusiasts.

Generally he creates collages, sometimes from familiar elements you may have seen in other compositions, which offers continuity across the collection. We never discontinue stamps here at PaperArtsy, so these new stamps will fit perfectly with what has come before. 

Lets take a look!

Good Morning
by Lauren Hatwell 

I love the way these two stamp sets go together. This would make a great New Home card.

So no need to guess which are my two favourite elements in this stamp set are then Love the way the Koala and Mustard Pickle Fresco Chalk Paints paint go together here.

Hot Weather
by Leandra Franich

The weather here in the UK and beyond has been Hot! Hot! Hot! Those of us trying to make stamps in 35 degrees plus have been dripping, so this is an ode to the suffering we go through here at HQ to bring you stamps, no matter what the climate!

by Leandra Franich 

Here's the cockerel, also aching for a cool breeze to blow his way! He smiles, and still crows each morning, warning people to stay hydrated and take cover! The oxide inks in red and orange really convey the feeling of heat so well.

Stormy Skies
by Leandra Franich
Lots of people head off for their summer holidays at this time of year. Usually when we escape from the UK we are leaving the cooler, damp weather behind. Who knew that 2018 would be so different! For once we have the continental weather right here!

by Leandra Franich

Below I share how to make an oxide ink background like this, and its ever so effective as a fast card. I do find that the new Versafine Clair inks stamp better over oxide ink backgrounds than Archival. They seem to sit much blacker on top of the oxide zone, I find the pigment of the oxide ink tends to 'cloud' the archival ink slightly.

by Lauren Hatwell

Always happy if there is something for me to colour in and cut out. The flowers are a bit like propellers too. Love that!

 The Voices
by Lauren Hatwell

 I love the way the pop of Mustard Pickle paint works here with the black and white.

And we're off !
by Lauren Hatwell

It's official... I am loving Courtney's new Mustard Pickle paint colour...and here is that fab wheel stamp again. Another three-element card that really stands out. Quick and easy but striking and individual.

A quick technique below using oxide re-inkers that you might find handy to try. With this I don't do a whole lot of drying and blotting, I tend to take one print and step away. Mind you, we had a power cut when I was making these samples for this post, so I had no heat to use anyway!

Project: Let's Fly
by Leandra Franich

It's quite surprising how you can make fun backgrounds super-fast with Oxide Inks. These are perfect for collage style stamps such as Hot Picks, and can be a super fast way to create.

I find the re-inkers so much more useful than the ink pads, and they are better value too. A re-inker has enough ink for 2.5 ink pads, and you can make your own ink pad  with Cut 'n' Dry foam and store in a snap lock bag if you wish. (Of course this also allows you to custom make ink pad colours and sizes too!). For ink application direct to craft sheet, these are ideal. No big splodges, controlled amount of colour...it's a dream! Also ideal for the gel plate too...so, let me show you how one dabble gives you a few backgrounds.

3 colours applied onto the craft sheet.

Spritz 5-6 times with water.

Sometimes I will disperse the dots into splats with a palette knife.
It helps to blend the colours and soften the ink out a bit...

To get a print down the centre of the A6 card, I bent it gently and dipped the bend directly into the wet ink.

Then I took a second print (image left).
And a third print by pressing card 3 directly onto wet card 2 (image on the right).

Back to the craft sheet which now looks like this (left). I took another print, this time keeping the entire A6 card (dip #4) flat. Sometimes I will spritz more water if the ink is looking too dry, before the 'press'.

And finally a 5th print. This time I spritzed a light misting of more water to further soften.

Next step I will use any leftovers for stamping and flicking. For oomph, I added one teeny tiny drop of the blue re-inker onto the soft colour puddle remaining, spritzed a bit more water, and then using the Timmy splatter brush I could then add some colour splats easily to the blank parts of all my cards.

Oh, and I also stamped some dots that were inked up from the puddle too. Love the serendipity of how the orange ink emerged from a previous project. 

And as you know, a bit more stamping in black and blue (Versafine Clair Ink) and the project is super-simple, but complete. Just a bit of matting and layering to finish it off.

I'm so pleased that Mark has made a couple more stamps for us! He's been a busy chap of late, but lucky us that he found some time!It did take a bit of nagging though, hopefully thi will get him in the zone for another round soon!

Thanks for joining us
