Winter Spring Summer

or Fall
 four seasons one stamp
The newest order arrived yesterday. In it were several items that were calling my name. You can see the results of my very first play time with the Art Anthology Sorbet and Velvet paints. Check out the special on the coordinating sprays that are our feature item from now till the end of the month.  For simplicity sake I kept it to one tag and a card front. I wanted to show you how you can take one stamp and use it for all four seasons. This way, if you print out your method and glue it to the back of your tag, you can use it as a quick reference and inspiration for other stamps and projects. Things you may want to add would be leaves for the trees, snowflakes, tiny embellishments that signify the change of seasons for you. Sky's the limit, get your creative hat on today.
These are created using exactly the same stamp. To make your sorbet and velvet paints pop on the black, mix them with a touch of white gesso. A little color goes a long way . Spread it on your craft mat in a thin layer. {Roll with a smooth roller if you have one and wash your stamp with water between color's } Press the stamp into the mix then use it to stamp. See the list below for color choices according to season. 
Suggested Supplies:
Stamp - Hero Arts-Over Exposed Tree
Note all colors were mixed with White Gesso
