Use A Small Stamp with Big Impact

Hello friends!

As promised yesterday, I am sharing a card on using a small solid stamp set.  

With a stamp like this, you might think of doing Repeated Stamping to create a background. It can be a colorful one or a monochromatic one. They are all great ideas! 

For my design, I decided to do a multi-color inking.Altenew-Solid Foliage Stamp Set-Craft Your Life Seasonal Blooms

I chose 2-3 main colors and proceeded to stamp in various shades and hue. The emphasis of my stamping is the gradient effect and simple color combo.

Once I was happy with the stamping. I started to work on the background.

I used the sentiment from Craft Your Life Seasonal Blooms (sold out)
