Well, I gave into temptation! Before I purchased this stamp set I kept telling myself 'Melissa, you don't need another floral stamp set' but I wanted it. And let me tell you, I'm not disappointed I purchased it! What a beautiful stamp set with so many possibilities! What really hooked me was when fellow demonstrator Karen Barber featured a card with this set and this color wash technique on our demonstrator website. I wouldn't doubt if her email went into overdrive; her creation was simply beautiful!
Stamp sets: Secret Garden, Word Play
Cardstock: Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple, Crumb Cake
Ink: Versamark, White Craft, Always Artichoke, Raspberry Ripple
Accessories: White embossing powder, Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple, Calypso Coral markers, Aquapainter, blender pen, Raspberry Ripple satin stitched ribbon, Flower Trim, rhinestones, 1 3/4" circle punch, 1 3/4" scallop circle punch, sponges, Tombow
To recreate this technique, stamp images in Versamark then sprinkle with white embossing powder and heat set. Color in the image with White Craft ink and an aquapainter. When dry, apply color with either markers and blender pen or pool ink in the lid of an ink pad and apply with a blender pen. You will achieve a wonderfully soft dreamy effect.
Until next time...
