NEW PaperArtsy Stamps: August 2019 {Zinski Art}

 ZinskiArt Collection
August 2019 New Product Announcement

A note from Leandra:
We always love to see what Elena presents to us as stamp ideas, and this time we chose to create 3 pairs of stamp sets: Moos, Mices and Dogs/Cats. They are all totally endearing, she always seems to get the personalities of her characters jumping off the page. I'm sure you are going to absolutely love them!

Hi everyone, Elena here

I'm super excited to share with you my newest release for PaperArtsy. 4 stamp sets.

I'm sure you're aware by now that I absolutely adore animals, so it's always a joy to add more to the collection and of course I don't do realistic, it's much more fun to create them how they appear in my imagination. Growing up, I loved cartoons and I miss running to the local shop on a Saturday morning to buy my favourite comics. Now, as a not so grown up grown up, I can create my own. Characters are always so versatile because they can not only fit into  an any-occasion card, but in art journals to make up stories, and made into embellishments for so many projects.

Today and Tomorrow you will see ideas with these stamps from Lauren and another of the Team PA Bloggers. You can also see plenty of activity on PaperArtsy's Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest. (links at the foot of this post) So no matter what your preferred social media platform, we will be sharing with you!

Let's check out these new beauties, some ideas from each set and a couple of projects.

  New Stamps
Price: RRP £18.74 +VAT
Size:5" x 6" (13 x16.5cm)
All stamps are individually trimmed onto cling foam, presented in a clear hanging bag
with a laminated storage/index sheet.

Zinski Art Set 42 (ZA42)

I HAD to bring in the Hot Pick moon for this one and the beautiful stars from an earlier ZinskiArt set. I love dipping back into earlier sets to see what I can use. There is ALWAYS something great and everything goes together. These crazy cows are perfect for just about any situation. I DID think about a disco ball (remember when Wendy Mallas did the disco ball with one of the ZinskiArt flowers and the bird in the white suit!?) and I absolutely LOVE  those hipster shades. These are Cool Cattle!!!

Zinski Art Set 43 (ZA43)

think this set is perfect for those who maybe don't enjoy colouring so much, or for those days when you just want a quick no fuss image for a project. The frame is brilliant for putting a sentiment in, as well as being great with the beautious bovine inside.

got so carried away that I actually did two cow projects for this set using the frame from the set and some very similar circles from one of Emma Godfrey's stamp sets - EEG23. I am always extra pleased when I can mix and match images from different collections. 

Zinski Art Set 44 (ZA44)

Well it had to be Super Mouse for this one. He really makes me laugh. Love his shades! A typically brilliant Elena touch to hide his true identity... We've got everything in this set. Ballerina Mouse, Town Mouse and Country Mouse. Brilliant! But Super Mouse might just be my favourite... for now anyway! LOL

Zinski Art Set 45 (ZA45)

Another amazing set I can see lots of uses for. Pretty much any project could have a cheeky mouse appearing to cause mischief and mayhem! The posing mice are perfect for those seaside themed projects! I love the amazing clock flower; and then of course there is a wealth of cheese related humour to draw on.

Zinski Art Set 46 (ZA46)

Anyone who knows me knows dogs are my absolute FAVOURITE and these guys are just brilliant! As ever, the expressions are perfect for all kinds of situations and I had an absolute ball making my samples. I did get a bit carried away, as you can see. I couldn't resist doing two cards...

Zinski Art Set 47 (ZA47)

...but OH! The Cats! The cats are just hilarious! I had such fun with these! Every one a winner. There are loads of things I could do with these fun filled felines! Not to mention that fab little garland of flowers; it pops up throughout my samples. 

Project One: It wasn't Me!

Apologies as I got so carried away with this that I completely forgot to take any step by step photographs. I've used a pre-cut chipboard stand for the base. I just love the dogs and their doleful expressions. I thought it would be hilarious to have a dog sat next to a mystery puddle. We just KNOW the naughty mouse has got something to do with it but the poor dog is in the frame for a telling off....

First I painted the background and base using Blue Oyster for the Sky and Snowflake for the stencilled clouds. I used Granny Smith for the grass. I used Blue Oyster again to stencil the puddle and added a layer of Glossy Accents over the top.

Now you stamp the sentiment, having first checked the images will fit underneath. 

Colour and cut out all your images (the bit I like the best) and arrange them on the background so that they tell your story. I love the way the dogs eyes are looking up at the words here. He's even lifting his little paw out of the way of the puddle! I added the JoFY bees as a bit of an afterthought and it's plain they were meant to be there all along.

And finally glue all your pieces in place and edge any raw edges with a black alcohol marker or paint pen to neaten. I put a couple of foam pads on the back of the dog just to pull him forward a bit and I've rolled him to the right a little so it looks like he is lifting his leg out of the puddle in disgust.

Project Two: Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time!

I've made a journal page and these feline friends just crack me up. Their expressions are so perfect for lots of comic situations and I can't wait to team them up with the dogs and the mice for more projects...

First I stamped and coloured my images. I used Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black and coloured my images with Copic Markers and Prismacolour Pencils. This is pretty much my favourite combination. When I was happy I fussy cut all the images.

Next I covered a long off-cut of Heavy Smoothy card with a couple of layers of Blue Oyster Fresco Finish Paint. I stenciled some clouds over the top with Snowflake Fresco Finish Paint and sponged the edges with Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink which I then flicked with water and removed with a paper towel just to soften the edges.

I've added some subtle shading with watered down Infusions (In the Navy for this one). For the tree branch, I used the tree trunk from ZA20, which is long enough to fit both cats on. Once I'm happy I glue it all down using good old PVA glue and let it all dry.

And finally all that's left to do is add the border and the wording. Very clean and simple, but fun to do and funny to look at too. The expressions on all Elena's characters are priceless. It makes them so inspiring and versatile to work with. 

And then, because I was just having so much fun and I had a couple of left over images, I made badges for my lovely ZinskiArt apron.... I really did not want to put these stamps  down and you won't either!

Thank you so much for joining us here today and please share your wonderful projects on the PaperArtsy pages because each one makes me smile a great big happy! 

Lots of love Elena :) x
