Brutus Monroe: Featuring Big Top stamp set

Hey there! Good to see you have popped by, and what a great day to do it on. Of course being Wednesday means the whole inspiration team at Brutus Monore has created some fantastic products using the Big Top stamp set. This set has so many fun characters in it, but I was drawn to this adorable little elephant. I knew as soon as I saw him, I had to watercolour him in!

Big Top stamp card Details

To watercolour in an image make sure you use an ink which is safe to use with water. Brutus Monroe inks are perfect for this when dry. I used Raven Detail ink to stamp the elephant from the Big Top set, though this was a third generation print as I only wanted a very light print. This was in order to paint an almost no line watercolour image. 

To colour this in, I used the Daniel Smith watercolour dot chart and selected pinks and purples for my colour scheme. I also added a little additional colour to the shading underneath the ball and podium to help ground the image. Once this was completely dry, I die-cut this using a stitched circle die

To coordinate with the elephant, I add a pink and purple horizontal striped panel and die cut a circle out of this panel for an inlay technique. This was them foam mounted onto a vertical scored card panel – the score lines are 1/4″ apart. I added a stamped sentiment onto a stitched rectangle. Lastly, I embellished the card with corresponding sequins. 

Did you like this project? Why not pin it and save for later? It will be there for when you need it!
