New Release PaperArtsy - Kim Dellow

Well I am absolutely thrilled to be here with you today showcasing two new releases from PaperArtsy designed by Kim Dellow.
This is the first piece I created for Kim brayering the background with Hey Pesto, Chartreuse, Cheesecake and a touch of South Pacific Fresco Finish Paints.
This is the first of Kim's releases and I have to say I was really taken with the small birds at the bottom and they are the focal point for this first piece.
I applied South Pacific Fresco Finish Paint first to my white card, brayering lightly over the background and then I applied Hey Pesto, Chartreuse and then touches of Cheescake, each time applying only a light pressure to apply the paint with a brayer so that all the layers of paint are visible.
I coloured the birds with coloured pencils and added touches of white with a white Sharpie pen.
I added touches of Autumn Fire Fresco Finish Paint using an old credit card to add scratchy lines to the background. I am loving these colours combined together.
This next card uses both of the releases from Kim.
This is the second of Kim's releases, I love the quirky flowers and those hedgehogs are adorable!
I applied book pages from an Alice In Wonderland book to a piece of white card and then placed die cut circles to the background, holding in place with low tack tape. I then brayered over the background with Fresco Finish Paints, South Pacific, Hey Pesto, Chartreuse and Cheescake, applying in that order.
I stamped imagery from both of the new sets, stamping with Black Archival Ink and then colouring each one with coloured pencils. I highlighted the circles with a black charcoal pencil.
I also aded delicate splatters of Autumn Fire Fresco Finish Paint to the background and stamped the word GROW using a part of the sentiment in the second set of stamps.
My third piece is a canvas. To begin I added some crumpled tissue paper, recycled from my package from PaperArtsy. I then applied Fresco Finish Paints to the canvas with my fingers, blending here and there with a baby wipe.
I added stamping around the edge of my canvas.
I used Kim's background stamp to add further layers of interest to the canvas and outlined the flowers with a charcoal pencil.
Splatters of paint have also been added along with scratchy lines using an old credit card.
I stamped part of the sentiment onto card coloured with Fresco Finish Paint and then cut out each one and added to the canvas for added interest and dimension.
My next card features the fabulous branches and those quirky birds once again showcased in a painty circle stamped with a lid and Autumn Fire Fresco Finish Paint.
For added texture I included machine stitching to the stems of the branch and some random stitching to the card.
I coloured the quirky birds once again with coloured pencils and grounded them with a touch of shading with a grey pencil.
I had an old piece of sequin waste on my desk and used that to add a touch of delicate stencilling in the background using Cheesecake Fresco Finish Paint, applied with a piece of Cut 'n' Dry Foam.
For my final piece I created a tag accordion again brayering the background with Fresco Finish Paints.
What I love about this imagery is that it can stand alone or be mixed with other imagery. The background stamps will be really good fillers for backgrounds too.
I added shading to the quirky flowers with coloured pencils and added a touch of background stamping with Autumn Fire Fresco Finish Paint.
Thanks so much Kim and Leandra for the opportunity to use your fabulous imager, I  had great fun!

Well I LOVE your samples Tracy'. You have performed your usual magic with these new stamps. I love all your samples and tried hard to find a favourite. But I can't pick just one. I particularly love how you turn the tree around to make branches for the quirky birds to sit on. You've done Kim proud with these!
