Gel Press Reverse Masking ATStamps Part TWO by Ana Bondu


Hello. Welcome to the second
part of this video devoted to personalized stamps.
So we will work in a first time on these stamps that I had
already stamped in the first part that were made with DISTRESS OXIDE.
So now to bring out these stamp designs I will discolor and recolor them. So for those who have the habit of my videos I think that
now you know the principle. I’m going to create a little framework for
protect the outline of my stamp, always with post-it.
It’s really essential to have in my workspace. It works for
a lot of things. So that’s me doing my little frame. If you have
used to see my videos you know I work a lot with bleach
it’s pure bleach and so I’m going totally bleach the inside of my
pattern. As VERSAFINE is a pigment ink and that it has completely
dried it will not fade when you see
that your VERSAFINE becomes discolored it’s not that it fades
that it mixes with bleach and so that she has not dried enough. but
the versafine will not fade. The Distress Ink however is
a dye-based ink. If it does not fade completely
keep going until it fades completely. It is important to give a little heat gun application so
to fix the bleach so that it does not spread to the rest of the paper to discolor the whole design. I will continue like this on my
other stamped designs. These are my little designs and now
I will make them colorful. I’ll be able to recolor. I advise you to wait
a little bit that all bleach is well evaporated before re colorizing
otherwise, depending on the color you use it may get redecorated from
following behind. So I’m going to use a palette
of watercolors. So my fish which is a clown fish i’m not going to go
much further than his colors traditional.
so I’ll leave these two bands there white
and then I will work with the orange. I do not have a bright orange on my
palette of watercolors so I’m going all simply build them up using
yellow. And red. Here. So I’m just going to just wet my background. so that he can receive
watercolor. My brush is not very clean it does not matter since anyway I will recolorize with this color there. I first wet my work area it allows me to put a
first layer a little clear and then I will give
the color to my clown fish. By working first
on the outlines to give it contast and not
do something that is flat. To deepen this effect I will
now use (there too you start to get used to) a pencil and
a blender. With regard to VERSAFINE we
will work differently and for a simple and good reason, as I
you explained it already previously VERSAFINE does not fade with bleach, so let’s take a Azoline stamps designed for
Carabelle Studio. I will use this little branch of leaves that I’m going
position here at first. I’m going to ink it with the Versafine and it’s going to be important to work
with MISTI (a stamp positioner) because you see that the Versafine does not
not stamp through the bleach We will have to go through the
acrylic painting and therefore re-apply after. So here is my foliage is now
stamped. I will dry my Versafine. and so I’m going to check that the Versafine, the Versafine background resists well to bleach and as you can see the
background does not fade. So we have to go through something else to be able to color these leaves. then we would have the option
possibly stamp them next to cut and re-glue them
above. For me the spirit of the stamp, if we must send it, is to work in a
single layer. If not to keep them, of course, you can do some
cutting there is no problem. Therefore I will use paint
acrylic and I’m going to cover inside of all my leaves, so
as it’s a small design I can work, for example, with a Posca without any difficulty. And that’s what I’m going to do
I will directly make my leaves with green Posca. So he is a little
cranky for the moment, it’s normal. And to give a little nuance
at this green I’m going to add a little bit of blue shadow. I do not hesitate to use a small
dry brush to give a small side stretched, spread out, to paint. and now, to really find
my leaves, I’m going to restamp them but this
this time with ARCHIVAL because if I stamped with the Versafine on the Posca the Versafine will not stay not to dry, since, I remind you,
the Posca is acrylic painting (which is non-porous). It is sometimes necessary to
repeat twice with the Archival ink. So that’s the benefit of the backgrounds to the
Versafine like the Versafine does not get diluted and does not fade.
I can make my shadows in watercolor without diluting my background. So I dip my brush into the water, I wet like it’s the areas where I want to create some shadow
and with my small palette of watercolors always, I will slightly accentuate with the water that will blend, with the watercolor
that will blend around the leaves without necessarily making a hard line. It will take me 3 very small steps
for my stamp to be finished. I will first make small outline. So I
make a broad outline, simply with watercolor. It’s going very fast
unlike what we could imagine, the Versafine making a
barrier naturally. If we just just trace around our stamp, we manage to fill the outline pretty much correctly. We will now cut our stamps. So I use this little ruler patchwork, we cut at 4.5 centimeters in one direction and 6 centimeters in the other. So 4.5 – 1 2 3 4 and 1/2 so I put a
millimeter on each side Here and to complete our stamp, realistically to look like a postage stamp, we will use the cancellation mark design. All my little stamps are now
completed. So here we have those who have been
made to the Distress Oxide, here those which were made with Versafine Clair in the background. We can quickly build a nice little collection and you will see that we become very, very quickly addict.
In any case I hope that I would have made you want to make them. See you soon for a
next video!
