Hi! (Cross posted to Crafty Magic)
I came across the following image on the Paper Parrot Blog (Via Pinterest) and was really impressed with it! (Click the picture to view the relevant blog post.)
seemed a really simple way of tackling flower stamps and making
something with a completely different feel to it. I didn't have this set
of stamps so I used a set of Joanna Sheen stamps from the Little Bit
Sketchy collection called "Flower Power." As I haven't got many pale
inks, I stamped them using second generation stamping and Weathered Wood
distress ink. It's not as beautifully coloured as my initial
inspiration but I tried to do something similar using distress inks as
watercolours - blobbing them onto an acrylic block, adding some water
and then using them with a paintbrush onto the card. Once coloured I
went over the stamped edges with a silver pen. A bit later it occurred
to me that I could have just stamped them in silver to begin with??!??
But you live and learn! :)
