And with the end of January/February Sale-a-Bration 2022 comes the end of the availability of this lovely Calming Camellia cling stamp set. It took me awhile to realize just how gorgeous this set is. I created these four cards yesterday.
I wanted to experiment with several things…..
- the different patterns of the Designer Series Paper
- presenting the image monochromaticallly
- presenting the image colored with Watercolor Pencils and Water Painter
- presenting the image colored with Stampin’ Blends
The black/white Designer Series Papers are from the retired (sorry) Beautifully Penned package. I really like the monochromatic presentation of the flower:
But then I wanted to see the flower colored in. First I used water color pencils and Water Painter to enrich the image on the left and then Stampin’ Blends Markers on the right. They’re amazingly similar.
I also used the Stamparatus to get a strong, clear image of the flower. If, perchance, the image wasn’t fully stamped on my first attempt, I could re-ink the image and stamp it again exactly where I stamped it the first time. I highly recommend using this tool!
Best Tool to have on hand!!!
I must honestly say that I often forget to use my Stamparatus and WHY is my question to self. Once I positioned the cling stamp on the clear plastic plate I was able to stamp all four Basic White card stock layers with the exact same intensity in the exact same position on the layer. I promise a review of this tool soon.
