Happy Friday! Today we are welcoming back Lydia! We love her take on these stamp sets today and hope they inspire you to create! We can't wait to try this black and white combo!
Hi there everyone! It's Lydia here with you today with my second (and last post :( ) using the new May Release.
I have a bright and fresh card using the beautiful Fun Flowers and You stamp sets.
I started with a piece of watercolour card and one of the solid flowers from Fun Florals, I inked this with Spun Sugar Distress Ink and stamped this into place 3 times. I then took a wet paintbrush and added water all over the flower images to get the ink moving, while the flowers were still wet I dropped in some Worn Lipstick and Wild Honey Distress Inks. As the images are wet the inks blend and bleed into each other so no other blending was necessary.
I then stamped part of the detail leaf in Pickett Fence a couple of times around the flowers, added water over and dropped in a little Peacock Feathers. I added the centres in Squeezed Lemonade, I added water to these but didn't add in any additional colour as I wanted these to be very subtle.
Once dry I added the sentiment using You Stamp Set in a bold black ink and to finish added a strip of washi tape along the bottom edge.
I love the contrast between the bold black graphic lines and the softness of the flowers!
Thank you so much for joining me this week, I have had so much fun playing with these sets and I hope I managed to inspire some of you.Hugs, Lydia xxx
