Full BloomPosted: September 4, 2015
‘Full Bloom’, the stamp featured on this card, will be a great stamp to use year round. The hanging blooms could be flowers or berries just by varying the ink colour or details added. I chose to make it in fall colours with a contrasting background. I inked the stamp with distress stains, spritzed it, then stamped on watercolour paper. I inked the ‘ever useful letter background stamp’ with purple stain, spritzed with water, stamped then painted over the script to spread the colour and blur the letters. The masking tape holding the panel left a white border when removed; I added a purple mat and die cut sentiment.
