I have said this before and will say it again....
One of the best things about stamping is that it makes you feel like an artist!
With the right stamp and inks, I can really fool myself into thinking that I created a little piece of ART!
Other than the pattern paper (the black and white scrolls on the side), everything is hand made!
It took me a few stages to create this card. It didn't feel like a long process at all. Every time I did some coloring, I left it to dry and then I went back a few more times to add more shades of colors and layers. It is such a gratifying process! AND I am loving the bright and happy result!
~stamp the flowers and leaves with Spectrum Aqua markers and spritzes of water
~with the help of MISTI, stamp multiple times with different colors. Leave the stamp on MISTI.
~use masking fluid (I used Elmer's Rubber Cement) to mask off the flowers, leaves and stems with a fine paint brush. Let dry
~Color the background with Distress Inks
~With the help of MISTI, stamp with VersaMark and clear emboss the image
~stamp the pattern paper with more Distress Inks
~stamp sentiment (Clearly Besotted); add sequins and twines.
It seems complicated, but it really is not!
I am going to use this stamp set and see if I can come up with more ways to stamp!
Stamping is a beautiful thing.
Thanks for stopping by!
