Buddha at Stamping Sensations

Hello there,

It's time for a new challenge at Stamping Sensations and what great fun I've had creating this card. When I first saw the colours of this challenge, I wasn't sure what I would make using them but I'm really happy with how this eventually turned out:

I started by stamping Buddha using Versafine Black Onyx and then heat embossed with a clear powder.  This helps the ink not to run when it comes to the painting part.  I masked Buddha off before setting about my background.  Now at this point, I had no idea what stamps I would be using so I started by adding a pale pink glow around my image.  I then used a stencil and Adirondack Raspberry to create a swirl around him.  As there was lots of space left at this point, I stamped randomly using Versa Magic Oasis Green ink and a small flower stamp.  Still lots of space left so I stencil in some green dots and a Lattice pattern with Memento Nautical Blue. As this has now created a border that I'm happy with, I decided to stamp some Oriental looking hanging flowers with the pinks and blues that I've already used int he rest of my scene.  Almost done now so I sponge around the edge with the Nautical Blue before removing the mask and paining Buddha in the same colour and also using some Teal Zeal to add some shading.  I finished off by adding a Peace sentiment by Crafty Individuals which I think works just perfectly with this scene.  I think I've managed to hit the brief and I hope that you like it. The Buddha stamp is by Inkylicious

This is a real beauty Sandra and it sounds like you enjoyed making it, the way you have used the stencil around the image really does give a feeling of peace and calm as do the blend of colours. Have a lovely Sunday.

Great job Sandra!!! I love this (I love Buddha, I have one in my dining room that sits on top of one of my display cabinets!). The swirl stencil is a super addition here and the colour palette is also really calming - that sentiment goes perfectly too. Well done! Lots of love xxxxx
