And take a look at how I've used them in my showcase:
First up is the beautiful Hello Lovely peony cluster stamp. I prepared a background using three colours of distress ink and an older stamp, Large Background French Script and then stamped the peonies and greeting on top. I added extra colour using oil pencils to make the flowers pop even more.
Inks: Versafine Clair, nocturne, SU, smoky slate; Ranger distress, bundled sage, pine needles, peeled paint
Colours: Miya oil pencils
Embellishments: Pretty Pink Posh, clear drops
And I've sort of fallen in love with the Hello Lovely stamps and created another card using them combined with Background Blocks Scattered Hearts.
I stamped and hand cut the peony cluster and then used this as a guide to add colours around the edges using water colour brush pens - a technique I learnt by watching a Toni Darroch Youtube video. Once this was dry I stamped the hearts on top. Then I stuck the peonies down and stamped the greeting. The final touch was to flick gold glitter paint over using a paintbrush.
Stamps: Uniko, Hello Lovely, Background Blocks Scattered Hearts
Ink: Versafine Clair, nocturne
Colours: Arteza water brush pens; Jen Hadfield, gold glitter spray
My final card for today uses the Background Blocks Scattered Hearts paired up with greetings from You Are Sentiments Outlined.
I used a Kaleidacolor ink pad to get the variation in colours and then chopped up the sentiments after stamping them to create a whole new greeting. Such a fabulous way to extend the use of stamps!
Stamps: Uniko, Background Blocks, Scattered Hearts, You Are Sentiments Outlined
Ink: Versafine Clair, nocturne; Kaleidacolor, berry bliss
