Use Spray Inks with Outline Stamps

Hello friends!
Today's post is another way of using  "Poinsettia"
If you are looking for a quick way of coloring your images, this post is for you!

 This stamp set is part of the release "Believe in the Season" from Simon Says Stamp (see here.)
 My two cards came together very quickly.
I rely on my sprays and mists a ton. After spraying them on watercolor paper, I let my DIY paper dry. I then stamped the outline stamps and cut the images out.
Christmas Greetings  

This set also comes with matching dies. Since I don't have them, I fussy cut all of the poinsettia on my cards. See? It's do-able when you are watching mindless TV. That was exactly how I did it! 


As for the dotty details on the poinsettia, I thought it would be fun to add white Pico Embellisher for that little something something...


 I am keeping the post short and sweet.

I really am amazed at the number of 'different' cards you make from one stamp set. Truly an inspiration and challenge to those of us who don't think 'outside the box'. These cards are so lovely. The intense color is such an eye opener. The way you used 'ink'? to offset and bring the eye to the greeting is really original and wonderful. The pico dots add interest and emphasis. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful.
