Stamp Review Crew: Dotty Angles Edition
OK, before I get too involved here, a little about the Stamp Review Crew for those who are visiting us for the first time. We are a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators, and we have a blog hop on the first and third Mondays of every month. Each hop features a single stamp set, and we show lots of great ways to use that one set :) We have a home here: Stamp Review Crew. If you get lost along the way, there is always a master blog roll list there, and the links are directly to the post regarding that hop, so you can hop easily through any of our past hops. GO check out the ones you have missed!
If you are hopping along in order, then you arrived from Nancy Smith's blog, fun stuff, right?!
I embossed the triangles in white embossing powder over an entire panel of watercolor paper, then used an Aquapainter to wet areas before adding Watermelon Wonder first in the center, let that dry a little, then Delightful Dijon, then Mint Macaron, all with an Aquapainter and ink picked up from the lid of the inkpads. These colors watercolor beautifully! So many shades and the yellow and the mint are much brighter colors when diluted.
At 2:45am, I thought, good enough! I am going to bed. I just laid my head on the pillow, and a great idea hit me!
This was done on watercolor paper, again. Love that stuff! I inked up the triangles stamp in roughly half Wisteria Wonder and half Wild Wasabi, misted it with about 5 pump from my Spritzer, then stamped repeatedly. I did not re-ink or re-mist more than once, there was plenty of ink and water. I love this look! I did ink up one end of the stamp with Wisteria Wonder and mist again for the far right side of the card as the stamp is not long enough for the whole card from in the landscape orientation.
OK, that is all I have for you this time! Off to go check out the talented Shana Gaff!
