Greetings! Do you have a fear of spiders? I know several people that do. I happen to not be the biggest fan of how spiders look, but I really appreciate what they do for the environment. I was inspired by the very cool web in the Spider Fear stamp set from Stampendous.
I started off by creating my background with glossy photo paper and Ranger Alcohol Inks. There are many options for types of paper that can be used with alcohol inks, but I like how inexpensive photo paper is, and I can get great results. For this background, I used Stonewashed, Eggplant, and Stream. I also used Ranger’s Blending Solution to help move the color around.
After I was satisfied with my background, and it was totally dry, I inked up the spider web with StazOn ink in Jet Black. I like to let the stamp sit on the background for a little longer than a regular ink just to be sure that the StazOn transfers well. Next I applied my spider and sentiment using the same ink.
I mounted the background on to a black card base. This type of card is very quick to make. It only takes a few minutes to create the background, and stamping the images is fast too. Since there’s no coloring involved, you can get a bunch of these done in no time. And if spiders aren’t your thing, I bet you have other stamps that you can use in this way.
