New Luminous Poppies stamp....

Hello everyone,

Welcome to day four of our blog blitz using only stamps.  I have to admit I did have a hard time getting started making a card using only stamps.  The beautiful dies have really made things so easy for so long now...  I took the opportunity to dust off some techniques I haven't used in a while.

I used Faber-Castell Gelatos with the Luminous Poppies Stamp (#G1911) to create a water color effect.


The Gelatos are really fun to work with.  They have the consistency of lipstick and are water based.  I used a mini-mister to lightly wet the stamp.  I then colored the stamp directly with the Gelatos and stamped onto smooth card stock.  I repeated this several times on the card leaving room for the greeting.  The greeting is also a new stamp (#B1913).  It has a cute butterfly on the side.  2 stamps in one.  I added a strip of washi tape and some baker's twine and mounted it on a Meadow card.


Don't forget to leave a comment.  They are giving away new stamps all this week.  The winner's will be chosen from the comments.

Thanks for stopping by.
