Good morning! I just know you have been holding your breath waiting for my big surprise! Well you can exhale now, cause I’m about to tell you. Actually there have been little clues dropped the last couple of days. You just needed to look closely!
It’s been a year in the making. Last June, Jeanne, Kittie and I sat around Kittie’s pool talking about her stamping style. It was before Kittie’s stint with design teams and even before the Dirty Dozen. To be exact – it was a year ago to the very week. We brain stormed the idea of Kittie making little kits with images and tools to help others learn her techniques to create the scenes she is so famous for.
I am so happy to announce that the day has finally arrived – INTRODUCING (a little drum roll please)
Kittie has designed two Master Kits, one for Landscape Scenes, Master #1
and one for Beach Scenes, Master #2
Along with these two Master Kits, Kittie has also handpicked her favorite Rubbernecker images to be incorporated into accessory kits to accompany the Masters. The images have been resized and reworked for the exclusive kits.
The ones below accompany the Landscape Master #1
and then these accompany the Beach Master #2.
If you paid close attention over the last few days, you would have seen that Kittie has been uploading cards made with the images, dropping hints along the way about the new images.
It was my pleasure to make a sample with the Landscape Master #1 and the accessory set with the cabin.
I started the image by painting water on the top half of the watercolor paper, and applying a wash of Broken China Distress Ink. Once that dried, I painted the bottom half of the watercolor paper with water and applied a light wash of Shabby Shutters. Once that dried, I stamped the trees, masked them and stamped the cabin. Leaving the mask on the cabin, I stamped a few evergreen trees in the background. The cabin and tree trunks were water colored and the grass was given another layer of green. While the grass was still wet, I stamped the grass sprigs on the grass and let them run to add some dimension to the ground. The leaves were stamped with various images from the Kit, and then the flowers were added. To finish the card, I used Soft Sky which I sponged the edges with Weathered Wood and Old Olive.
