It's time for the STAMPlorations February 2020 release over on the STAMPlorations blog. I'm so excited to show you some projects I created using the four fabulous new stamp sets which are all perfect for spring cards, Mother's Day, maybe for someone's birthday or just to celebrate spring! We'll showcase all four sets over the next four days. As always, you can comment on the blog posts for a chance to win a gift code or stamp set!
Today we are showcasing Shirley's new stamp set Layered Vase. It's another in Shirley's fun line of stamp sets with layered stamps for colouring your images by stamping with solid stamps. It creates a great artsy look really quickly and easily.
For my first card, I stamped the vase and flowers at the edge of the card panel. I added the layered flowers in yellow and orange Distress Inks, inking the stamps with multiple colours for an ombre effect. I used light blue and light green Copics to trace the vase and the stems of the flowers. I added a sentiment from Softly, another new stamp set which we'll showcase the day after tomorrow. Last, I splattered black ink for added interest.
For my second card, I stamped the vase with flowers but I spritzed the inked stamp before stamping for a watercolour effect. I then added colour to the flowers using the solid stamps and Distress Inks in yellow and purple and splattered the card with yellow ink before adding a sentiment using the Everyday Sentiments dies.
