Life may not be the party we had hoped for, but while we’re here, we might as well find a peaceful place to dance! These two stamp sets — Beautiful You and Peaceful Place — will create a lovely card with the perfect combination of images and sentiments. You’ll love the artistic feel of this set using different watercolor techniques.
The best way to create this card is to use your Stamparatus. First, stamp the dancing girl from Beautiful You stamp set using Basic Black archival ink or Jet Black Stazon ink on a piece of Whisper White cardstock.
Create a mask of the dancing girl image, by stamping the image on a post-it note (closest to the sticky part) and fussy cut the image. Place the mask over top of the girl on your stamped piece.
Place the large landscape image from Peaceful Place stamp set in your Stamparatus, oriented correctly with the girl image. Because of the detailed image, I found that I needed to ink and stamp this image several times.
Color the stamped images using your favorite watercolor technique. For instance, try coloring the images with your Watercolor Pencils and softening the color using your Blender Pens. Or for simplicity, create a watercolor wash by squeezing your ink pads to create a pallet in the lid and coloring the image with your aqua painter.
Add your sentiment and embellish with some Whisper White Baker’s Twine and you’ll have the perfect card to share with someone.
