Floral Silhouette

Hello!

I’m here with my second  Crafts-U-Love DT post for the quarter.

This time, I received the fabulous Penny Black Floral Silhouette stamp set* and a pack of Lawn Fawn ink cubes*. You can see the other cards I made with these products here.

Crafts-U-Love has kindly given me a discount code for you to use for these products – just add LUCIE20 at checkout.

Today I wanted to share some very simple cards I made using repeat stamping.

First up, a good luck card. I selected the leafy frond image and got stamping! Originally I had envisaged it in the soft yellow ink… but once I had covered my card, I felt it was a little too subtle. So I tried a navy/coral combo that I really liked – much more bold! Which one do you prefer?

By the way, the little flower and dot stamps are from previous DT packages – they were from Pinkfresh Studio and Julie Hickey stamp sets. I also added some coordinating Nuvo drops.

The next card I created uses a technique I like to call ‘Baby wipe watercolouring…

I covered a piece of watercolour paper with the Penny Black flower and stem image, using the Lawn Fawn inks. I trimmed the panel to size and then spritzed it with water. I then took a baby wipe and dabbed each image in turn. This process softened the colour without distorting the image too much. In the second photo above, the image on the left has had the ‘treatment’ – I really like the muted effect.

I turned this into a card, by cutting a panel from the centre before adhering the frame to my card base. I adhere the centre panel using some foam tape to raise it. Finally, I added a Creative Expressions die cut to complete my card.

Thanks for stopping by!
