Enhancing Stamped Images on Coloured Paper

Hello lovelies,

I love taking my time to colour in stamped images; carefully adding layer upon layer of colour to create depth. Oooof! It feels so good once it’s done!

BUT, let’s be real, sometimes I just cannot be bothered and in those times I want a hack to get me that look with a fraction of the effort.

I started by stamping my chosen image straight onto some coloured cardstock, with Versamark ink so that I could heat emboss it with Super Fine White powder by WOW!

I used pencil crayons to add some depth of shadows into the nooks & crannies of where the petals meet. I added some white over each leaf, then I added green over the top.

I added a very light white highlight to the outer ends of the petals, and between this highlight & the shading it completely changes the look of the flowers.

In this photo I have finished one of the flowers and I think you can really tell the difference!

Once I had done all of the flowers, I added some white gouache splatters and some dew drop embellishments.

I added some more green in the glitter die cut scripty happy by Lawn Fawn and I offset that with a blocky style ‘birthday’ on a small piece of vellum.

That’s it for this card; I just added it onto a 7×5 white card blank.

Thank you so much for stopping by today, if you’re new here then I hope that you will consider subscribing.

Have a lovely, happy, safe, WONDERFUL week.

Stay Crafty!
