Guest Designer : Corrie Herriman x2

Today is our second post from the talented Corrie Herriman:

Hello everybody !

This is my second project as Guest Designer for VLVS! I have really enjoyed doing the projects. For this last one I actually did two little projects and couldn't decide which one to use so I'll show them both. Here goes. The first one is a series of three ATC's with the lovely Banksy stamps in the spotlight :

They were all made in the same way. The background is a gelli print. I have lots of them because they are so handy to use in your projects. Of course you can just paint your background, I do that too sometimes. I used two VLVS! stamps for the background : 19415 – Butterfly Specimens and 5210 – Collage writing. I used some black and white ink to make some splatters. Next I stamped the main images :19488 – Banksy Diving Helmets / 19434 – Banksy Gas Mask Flower girl / 19421 – Banksy girl floating with balloons. 

Any spots that were not stamped right, I just filled in with a black marker. I then looked for suitable sentiments and decided on : 18408 – I'm not weird / 19423 – BANKSY / 18409 – Share your Sparkle.

I also used a black ink pad to ink the edges.

I also used the following supplies : Pieces of gelli printed paper. Grey StaZon ink, Black Archival ink and white and black India Ink.

The second project was a postcard. I really liked how this came out :

I made the background by dragging a piece of cardstock through some Dylusions spray inks that I sprayed on my craftsheet with some water. I dried it and repeated the first step until I liked the result. I then stamped the flourish with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with silver embossing powder. When it was cool I rubbed it lightly with black Archival Ink. Next I stamped the background and the sentiment. I used the following VLVS! Stamps : 19417 – Victorian Flourish / 19416 – Waybill/Invoice Background and 8225 – Attention le ballet...

For the main image I used 9883 – Striped dancer jumping which I stamped on white card, coloured, cut him out and adhered him on the postcard. Some doodles with a black fine tipped pen and a white paint pen finished it off. Some close-ups:

I also used the following supplies : Cardstock, black and white markers, Ranger Silver embossing powder, Versamark Ink, Archival ink, Memento ink, Dylusions spray inks in pink and orange. StaZon Dove grey ink.

I hope you enjoyed my contributions to this fabulous blog !

Thanks for looking !
