Hi, yesterday I shared some pretty colour combinations for use with the Watercolor Wings stamp set. Today I’m going to show you how some of these colour combinations look on a finished card plus I have a little tip for getting a little more out of your stamp set.
Here’s the card…
It is a very simple card as you can see. You could easily step it up to the next level by adding some texture to the white background (whether by using stamps, embossing folders or embossing paste) and by popping up some of the butterflies.
Did you notice that the pink butterfly was actually created from the big butterfly stamp? All I did to achieve this look was to stamp half of the butterfly and angle the antennae to give the appearance of a side view. The easiest way to apply ink to only half of the stamp is to place a post-it note over the part you don’t want ink on. Ink up the stamp. Remove the post-it note and stamp. Easy! Another way is to use a sponge dauber to add ink to the areas you want (this is also great for when you want to add multiple colours of inks to a stamp).
A few important reminders:
- The second reserve window for the Stamparatus is now open. All the details are here.
- Don’t forget the Year-End Sales Event is still going on. Here’s your chance to grab some of your favourites before they are gone. All the details are here or you can shop 24/7 at my online store. The direct link to this Sales event is here.
- Lastly, Stampin’ Up! stated December 11, 2017, was the last day to ensure pre-Christmas delivery.
Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by!
