The new challenge at The Male Room is 'Inspired by Television'. I didn't know where to start so I ran through the things my family like to watch, Poldark has family appeal, smuggling, mining and Aidan Turner.
The ship was stamped in Versafine on to the media plate, this took a bit of thinking about because the image is reversed when you stamp on the plate first and then on to the card.
One thing I have discovered about the Izinks is that you can use a wet brush to lift colour off, just like you can with Distress Inks.
Silhouette stamping is now so much easier with a stamp platform because you can just keep building up the layers of ink, safe in the knowledge that it will stamp in the same place every time.
Having worked on a larger piece of card than I needed I was able to trim the image panel down until it was the right size. It didn't look good on a white card blank so I coloured the edges using black Distress Ink. Once dry I stuck the trimmed panel to it and stamped a few seagulls for balance.
Please pop over to The Male Room to see what the team have made, then join us with your interpretation of the challenge.
