Navajo Design, Dream Catcher and Kokopelli

“Navajo Design” is stamped with a rainbow pad on white card stock. A duplicate card of vellum is stamped in the rainbow pad with “Dream Catcher, Sm.”, “Kokopelli #8, Med.” and “Happy Birthday!”. The vellum is placed over the white card stock and small holes are punched at the top of the card so that the raffia can tie the two together. Card by Margaret Wiggin.

Variety of Stamps in Frame #1

“Southwest Frame, Lg.” was stamped onto confetti tan card stock. The same image was stamped with Staz-on ink on a transparency and the insides of each square were cut to create a mask. This was used to stamp “Kokopelli #8, Med.” in Old Olive, “Navajo Design” in Rust, “Sunburst, Sm.” in Mustard, “Beaded Feather, Sm.” in Ruby Red, “Dream catcher, Sm.” in Navy and, “Wild Arabian Horse”, in Chocolate Brown. A Pearl Ex pallette was used to highlight Kokopelli with green, Navajo design with copper and the Sunburst with gold. The horse was water colored with Cocoa. Mustard highlights were added to the mane. The entire card was then sponged with Chocolate Brown, Rust and Caramel inks. The mask was used again, and each square was sponged with more Chocolate Brown to highlight them and sponged more heavily around the edges. Card by Chris Coslet.
