Today’s post is the opposite technique that I used on Monday to make this card…
So today I’ll show you how to spritz your inked stamp before stamping the water color paper for an entirely different look and you can decide which you like better…
Here’s the same stamp set using the opposite stamping technique (and different colors, of course)
a close up…
a little peek inside…
So what do you think? This one is certainly crisper looking but still not fussy and exact. Where the first one looks sort of dreamy to me.
Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…
- Paper: Thick Whisper White and Soft Sky Cardstock, plus water color paper
- Ink: Archival Basic Black, Calypso Coral, Soft Sky, Daffodil Delight and Pear Pizazz
- Stamps: Penned & Painted, Suite Sentiments
- Tools ‘N Embellishments: Window Sheet, water spritzer, journaling or micron pen
- The Whisper White base card is 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored, folded and burnished at 5-1/2″
- The Soft Sky layer is 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ attached with SNAIL
- The Water color layer is 4″ x 5-1/4″. Using the solid stamp for each flower and leaf, ink up each stamp and spritz with water before stamping. Stamp shading stamp for each flower and leaves. Add outline stamp with Archival Basic Black.
- Add sentiment with Archival Basic Black.
- Cut your window sheet 3-3/4″ x 5″, place a small amount of SNAIL in center and take most of the sticky off with your fingers then place centered on this top layer.
- With your journaling pen or micron pen draw a border on the card front skipping where the art interrupts the line.
Do you like this technique better? Give them both a try and see the difference.
Here’s your “B-ism” for today…
