This first card is one we’re doing in stamp camp this month. The 2″ square of Whisper White is stamped with the sandpipers in Soft Suede ink, then gently sponged in Crumb Cake and Soft Sky. “Scraping” the sponge on the edge of the stamped panel gives extra dimension to this simple card.
Like many of you, I love to experiment while stamping. Some results end in the trash or recycling bin, but this one exceeded my expectations. Having played with the new Memento ink (from the upcoming Annual Catalog), I wanted to see just how much watercoloring — with water — I could do without bleeding or smearing the ink. I used conventional markers on the goose, but took Hello Honey and Lost Lagoon off the lid of the ink pads with Aqua Painters. The effect was just what I was looking for. The little scrap of Epic Day This and That DSP was perfect here, complemented by some new Hello Honey ribbon.
And now, enjoy what Dawn has done with this set at her blog, Tiddbits from Dawn. Have fun!
