Day Of The Dead with VDT Deni

April 27, 2019

Hey Everyone,


Well this is my last Video Design Team post as my term finishes at the end of this month, I have had an awesome experience with this team and have loved all the stamps I have had the opportunity to work with.

For my post today I am using Day Of The Dead, such a funny stamp set to use.


I started by laying the images I wanted to use together in my Stamping Tool, I wanted to try and create a scene and was thinking I may need to do some masking but I didn't end up needing to.

I wanted to make a golden walk way, so I stamped all my images out using Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-Press It Blending Cardstock. I left them in my Stamping Tool incase I screwed up my colouring and needed to stamp them again lol.

I used a Mechanical Pencil to sketch out the walkway, erasing bits and pieces and tidying up as I went. I then used my Copic Markers to start colouring and blending out the background, making sure not to colour over the pencil as it would become "trapped" under the Copic Markers.  I used an eraser as I got to the second layer so I knew everything was okay.

Once I had the background done I coloured the walkway blending from the outside in. I am pretty happy with the way it turned out.

I now knew that I hadn't screwed up the background so was ready to begin colouring all the images up. I have all the Copic Markers listed below.

I cut the colouring piece down to size using my trimmer. I cut a piece of  black cardstock down so it was a little bigger than the picture piece.

I turned the black cardstock over so I was using the reverse side with no pattern indented in it. I used the skull stamp from the stamp set and some Archival Brilliance Moonlight White ink with a Acrylic block and all the way around the outside of the cardstock. I wasn't worried about the centre as I knew it would all be covered up. I allowed this piece to dry (it didn't take long as it is warm here at the moment) If you are worried you can hit it quickly with a heat gun.

I then adhered my colouring to the black skull stamped piece using Scotch ATG.

I am super happy with the way my card turned out, I thank you for coming and joining me on my Kindred Stamps journey.

I hope you have enjoyed my post today, if you have any questions feel free to send me a message or contact me via facebook (all links can be found below).
