Today I’m sharing a card with you that I made during a Mystery Stamping Hour I held a couple of weeks ago. I chose the “Positive Thoughts” stamp set, as I thought the flower, leaves and butterfly images would be perfect with the technique:
The technique is quite simple: ink a clear block and stamp it randomly over the paper. Then, ink a stamp and stamp it three times (only inking once, to obtain a gradual fading colour). This makes a really fast and pretty background!
I love the Ornate Layers Dieson this card! As you can see, Granny Apple Green and Blackberry Bliss were the ink pads I chose for my colours. Not a colour combo one might consider using, but I think they worked quite well together!
This card layout was inspired by a beautiful Christmas card using snowflakes and you can click HERE for the PDF tutorial.
If you would like to join me in my “Mystery Stamping Hour with Tina” FaceBook group, just go to my FaceBook page “The Serene Stamper” and click on the blue “Visit Group” button. We stamp every Friday at 1pm Atlantic. FYI – it’s not a FB live, instead I post the steps in the comments and it’s a really nice way to stamp together. My team and I have been having Mystery Stamping Hours like this for years and many prefer it this way, vs. a FB live. It’s a lot of fun and I hope you will stamp with me soon!
