Mixed Media artwork using new Nesting Stamps at Imagine Design Create

Hi there, I’m back with a tutorial today of a mixed media piece, originally created on a canvas, using Nesting Circle stamps and the associated Solid Circle stamps. I will talk you through how to make the background using a stencil with both inks, and Nuvo embellishment mouse by Tonic Studios to create texture. Finally I will introduce the Nesting stamps and their Solid stamps, and how they work so well to co ordinate with each other.

You will hopefully by the end, understand how a piece like this comes together.

The Artwork

I came up with the concept of Nesting stamps so that I could create pieces like this because being a stamper, I do not naturally reaching for dies. Kerri-Ann designed the stencil I used in the background at around about the same time, but we hadn’t discussed our ideas….but the two work together so brilliantly.
