Hello! It's the exciting time to share my Monthly Stamp Study projects with you. This study takes place right here in this blog on the first Saturday every month. This month I chose Altenew's Whimsical Flowers as my study subject.
This set consists of 3 large flowers, 3 small flowers (all with solid and outlines) and a few small dots, leaves and stems. As you can imagine, the stamping possibilities are endless. If you love floral images and layered stamping, then you must consider getting this set!
Be warned-this is a photo-heavy post.
Originally I planned to make 3 cards with this stamp set, but I ended making
6, 7, 8!
Card#1 Thank You
~ stamp the solid flower image with bright inks on white card stock
~emboss the outlines in gold on vellum and let the bright color shine through
Card #2 Wishing you the happiest birthday
~apply Peerless watercolor and water onto the flower stamps and stamp on the watercolor paper
~after the images are dry, stamp the outlines accordingly
~stamp the sentiment in Delicata Gold and embellish
Card #3 You inspire me
~after the white chalk inks are dry, stamp in the colors
