here to purchase) but what you haven't seen is me using the circle stamps on the Elements 3 set.
|These sets can be used on everything! Yup...tootin' my own horn.|
I used the three solid circles on Element 3. I wasn't sure at first how I was going to use them, then I thought I'd experiment with the baby wipe technique. (You can Google this technique but basically you drip re-inker drops onto a baby wipe and use it as a stamp pad) Before I stamped on the cardstock, I also spritzed some water on the inked stamp to give it a cool water-colored image.
As you can see, I also used an assortment of each Elements lined circle stamps to stamp around the water-colored circles. LOVE!! You'll see in the finished cards that I water-colored some light yellow over the white areas.
Then I tossed the baby wipe. Once in the garbage, I did a double take. I grabbed it and swiped all that beautiful ink across another card. You can see what I did with that HERE. But here's what it looked like before I mixed-media'd it.
I probably could have swiped more from this baby wipe, but I was done with it for now. Here's one finished card from the circle background. Added some gold thread, gold heart washi and a stamped image I made earlier in the day. So sweet! I love the colors & that yellow is so lovely.
Now for the other cards:
|This is the swiped ink card.|
|Three cards from this tiny stamp set! Each a little different.|
|I used a circle punch to create a reverse mask and stamped inside it. |
If you look closely, I scored some lines above & below the washi tape.
|Attempted a Shaker Card. Love this stamp by Peggy Harris - first time using it!|
