Warm WishesPosted: February 2, 2020 Filed under: Darkroom Door, Nature Walk, warm wishes, Wildflowers Vol 1 | Tags: Darkroom Door stamps, Tsukineko Memento inks, Tsukineko Versafine inks 5 Comments
Hot off the presses and ironically cold out of my mail box here are some brand new stamps from Darkroom Door. Rachel Greig creates incredibly artistic stamps and these new flowers are no exception. The feature image and sentiment on today’s card are from the new set, ‘Warm Wishes’ which contains five flower stamps and eight sentiments.
I decided not to watercolour them this time (but you know I will), instead I chose a crisp pigment ink so you would see the incredible detail of the flower head. I created a background by stamping some fave florals from DD ‘nature walk’ and ‘wildflowers vol 1’ in memento London fog ink. It is a light enough grey to show up but not take over. On the card above I stamped the feature flower from ‘warm wishes’ in versafine clair ‘shady lane’ ink and added the sentiment in the same colour.
Both the stamped panel and the card base are neenah solar white cardstock and the panel is popped up on a piece of foam to create some subtle framing.
Make sure you pop over to the Darkroom Door blog for more inspiration with the new ‘warm wishes’ set. And check back here too because I’ll be giving these stamps the watercolour treatment very soon!
What a beautiful card and I love these DD stamps Heather, just so detailed, and love the more neutral tones with the soft grey for the background and that dark green for the main image. x
I love the effect that you have created with this card Heather. It reminds me of another earlier one of yours, that I love, with the PB stamp ‘Before the Snow’. I love the way you showcase the detailed stamp by creating the soft grey background. I might just have to purchase this DD set. I will have broken my NY resolution to not buy anymore stamps….still, I got to February 🙂
How gorgeous! Love how the focus flower stands out against the soft grey, perfect!
Also, can’t wait to see your watercolor work with these stamps 🙂
