Welcome to the Weekend!
Did you ever wonder if you could use your single stamps to get the look of a two-step stamping set?
That's what I tried to do with today's card inspired by the challenge at Splitcoast and this pretty runner from the Horchow site.
I used my MISTI to do this technique, but you could use a stamp positioner as well is you don't own a MISTI. I coloured the stamp called Trumpet Song from Penny Black with Memento markers in the lightest colours that I was going to use, sprayed with water then pressed onto my paper. I then wiped all the ink off the stamp and coloured only in selected areas with the darkest colours I wanted and stamped over the first stamping. By doing this, I was able to get the look of a two-step stamp set.
Normally, when I colour directly onto my stamps with markers and spray with water the colours blend together but doing this technique in 2 steps with lightest colours stamped first and darker last, it gives a much more defined look rather then having it all blended together.
I added some splattering for interest and pop dotted my sentiment after that.
I am added my card to these challenges:
Addicted to CAS- BLUE
Simon Says- ANYTHING GOES
Shoppng Our Stash- SPLISH SPLASH
Creative Knockouts- ANYTHING GOES
Southern Girls- FLOWER POWER
Thanks so very much for coming by and taking a look. It means so much to me.
Hope you have a great weekend.
