This morning, I am playing along with the challenge at Splitcoast as we are being inspired by the Michael's Colours Pinterest board.
Here is the board I chose:
I wanted to play with my new Penny Black stamp called Trumpet Song again, but this time I wanted to try and give it a 2-step stamping look.
Here is what I did. I began by inking my flowers with markers. I used Memento and Crayola markers as they both blend with water. I coloured directly onto the stamp then sprayed with water and stamped.
Then, to get the look of a 2-step stamp, I wiped the stamp off and coloured just the centers of the flowers with a grey marker and stamped right over the wet flowers. I love the way they turned out!
The grey gave some definition and added more interest to the flowers.
Last, I stamped the sentiment from Sprinkles and Smiles to finish off my card.
I am adding my card to these challenges:
Seize the Birthday- ANYTHING GOES
Sister Act Card- ANYTHING GOES
Simply Papercrafts- ANYTHING GOES
Simply Create Too- KEEP IT SIMPLE
To all my American friends...hope you enjoy a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend.
Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
