Hello, Gaylynn here. Stamping and sketching provide fun background scene building details. Today, on the Unity blog, I am sharing a way to sketch a stage scene for this adorable stamped frog. Intense watercolor pencils were used for color.
For this card idea, I wanted the frog to have a stage. So, I made two similar cards by stamping and sketching the stage background scene. The stamped frog and sentiment are showcased right in the center.
You are pretty much amazing!
Hi there. How are you?
Here are helpful tips for card stamping and sketching. To begin, stamp the frog onto watercolor paper using waterproof ink. Also, stamp and trim the sentiments. Next, sketch lightly around the frog to create curtain creases and a stage floor. Then, using watercolor pencils, lightly sketch the pencil colors then blend them out one color at a time, for watercolor. Next, trim or die-cut the dried frog scene panel to fit onto a card front. Finally, assemble the layers to finish.
Here is another frog card version.
Here is my video tutorial for this project. It will detail the full process.
