Hi Stampers. For today’s I was playing around with the Wetlands stamp set. This cards are all very similar – yet each give a different look.
This card starts out with a Wild Wasabi cardbase, a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Marina Mist and a 5″ x 3.75″ layer of Whisper White (attached with dimensionals). For this card I used the Work of Art stamp set to get the two swooshes (yes that’s a stamp) in Wild Wasabi and Marina Mist then stamped the birds in black Staz On. The brush/grass on either side was stamped in Wild Wasabi.
For this card the middle strips of Wild Wasabi and Marina Mist are painted on with the Aqua Painter.
Stampin’ Tip: I squeezed the ink pad together while it was shut, then when I opened it a small amount of ink was on the inside lid of the stamp pad. I then used my Aqua Painter to pick up some of the ink and paint onto my card with it.
This card uses the painters tape technique.
Stampin’ Tip: I used the blue painters tape for this technique, it’s not as sticky (kind of a post-it note adhesive). I used two strips about 6″ long and folded a little bit of each end over to give me “handles”. I then pressed the sticky side of the tape onto my ink pad pressed a little, moved it over and pressed a little more (to be sure I had 4″ of ink on my tape). Then I pushed the tape down onto my cardstock and rubbed it. When I removed the tape the ink stayed. Kinda cool huh? I’ll get a video out on that soon.
