tutorial with bold stamps and Lyra

Hi Hermine here! I made this tutorial due to a card that I made for a challenge and people wanted to know how I did it. This is so easy, awesome and fun to do. THE way to make your Christmas cards for instance, its looks great and because one has to make a lot of them its a good thing that it is so easy and fun to make.


This is the end result of my tutorial, below you find a step-by-step of how I did this.


start by making you stamp a little damp (not to wet, if you make it to wet put a piece of paper towel on it to absorb the water)


Take different colours of Lyra aquacolor and scribble on your stamp.


Take a spray bottle and spray water on it (again not to much)


Stamp on paper and let dry, I prefer to let it dry by air, but you can dry it with a heattool.


Take a Sukura of America micron 005 pen and outline the stamp.


This is a close-up after I outlined it.


Take a water brush and take some colour directly from your crayon.


Splatter this on the right hand side of the card.


Take a scrap piece of paper and stamp the tekst on it, colour this with a water brush and the same colours of the Lyra crayons you used for the main image. Glue in place.


Another sample I made with the same technique and same colours, only different stamps.

Used Stamps:
Xmas Silhouette Collage 19317
Bring on the twinkle 19313
Set of three ornaments 19309
with love 19302
All these stamps can also been found on plate 1411
Stazon jet black
Sakura of America micron pen 005

I like the card with the 3 ornaments--very pretty. ALso, it was good to refresh about using Lyra crayons to color directly onto the rubberstamp,mist,then stamp! I watched MaryJo Mcgraw at a convention years back, demo these but forgot all about it!
Outlining the stamped image of the trees was very nicely done!
