Gentle BreezePosted: May 27, 2015
This week I am sharing projects featuring new products from the new Sunshine and Smiles collection. Today’s card features the ‘Gentle Breeze’ stamp I used with tags recently. For a change I stamped on cold pressed watercolour paper which has more texture to it. My piece of watercolour paper already had some fine splatters of masking fluid on it. I inked the stamp with distress stains, spritzed it, stamped once, spritzed again and stamped a second paler image. I then spritzed the paper which caused the colour to bleed even more into the background. When it was dry I stamped the image again creating a more defined image in the foreground. I used a marker to ink a few stems and stamped them over the blooms. When all was dry I flicked a few splatters here and there in red and green.
