Thomas Kinkade Week

CHF TKVellum wm

Hi everyone,

It’s the first CHF non challenge week of the month which means that this week is Thomas Kinkade week where each of the CHF Design Team will be featuring one of the Thomas Kinkade stamps on their blogs. You will need to keep an eye on the CHF DT’s blogs during that week as we won’t all be posting on the same day, but rather on a day that suits us depending on what other stuff we have to blog that week.

As I mentioned in January’s Thomas Kinkade week post, this year I am attempting to post a different technique using this line of stamps each month which I have remembered to do this month … not bad for month two right Winking smile.

This time round I have used Thomas Kinkade’s Friendship Cottage stamp available from Cornish Heritage Farms. The technique I have used for this image is to stamp it onto vellum and then I colored the image on the  reverse (the side not stamped) using copic markers. I really like how this came out Smile. The sentiment is from the Script Essential Expressions also available at CHF.

Stamps: Thomas Kinkade Friendship Cottage; Script Essential Expressions – Cornish Heritage Farms
Paper: White; Blu Raspberry (MFT); Oh La La For Her DP – My Mind’s Eye
Other: Black Ink; Oval Punches; Foam Tape; Copics
