Stamping a Multi-color Sentiment

Hello friends!

I am sharing a very colorful card today. This time, I am using the Modern Greetings Stamp Set. 

As you can see, the images are quite large. However, this is the kind of stamp set that will make your ink/embossing powder shine! Here's my first take with this stamp.

Altenew-Modern Greetings Stamp Set -001
1 I don't have a lot of tips on using these large solid stamps. However, I do have a few pointers and will list them below. 
with Gratitude -001 
1. plan out your colors (if any) and use of space ahead
2. choose colors that will not clash (when blended) 
3. use a piece of Washi Tape or paper (to avoid smudges)
4. stamp positioner such as MISTI is a must: you will need to repeat certain colors to ensure the full coverage. With stamp positioner, you will not run into any problems.

with gratitude -002 
After inking up the sentiment, I stamped Tall Foliage on the edges to give it interest and compliment the focal point.

To keep it simple and graphic, I decided to use dots as embellishments. with gratitude -003 
I hope that you find today's post helpful.

You had to know I'd love the "gratitude"'s got my fave color on it.

I love your use multiple colors on a single stamp. And adding the embossing on the first was brilliant!

Ms. Tamp said...

Nice idea share on how to add more color. The mix with leaves looks great.

Linda BL said...

Love how you blended the colors on the newest card. Adding the leaves on the top and bottom adds a natural touch. The plain greeting is lovely, but the addition of the leaves,really adds a nice touch to the card.
