Hey everybody! Welcome back to another fun of stamping with the What Will You Stamp Challenge Blog! This week's challenge is Jar of Love! This set is seriously SO fun! I think my favorite stamp from the whole set is the beautiful fish so that's what I've used on my card today. I stamped the fish in Peekaboo Peach then rolled the edges of the fins on my Calypso Coral ink pad. I added a dash of clear Wink of Stella and cut the fish out with the matching framelits.
I decided to use a fun watercolor technique for the background. I used a size D acrylic stamping block and swiped it on multiple ink pads until the whole thing was covered in ink. Then I held it over my Shimmery White paper and spritzed it with water. As I spritzed some of the ink splattered off the block onto my card and gave me some fun ink spray that matched color choices. Pretty cool and so darn easy! After spritzing my block I immediately placed it onto my paper and pressed down to transfer the ink to the paper. I love the way it turned out!
I had some leftover White Bakers Twine that I had painted with Dapper Denim for another project and thought the color was perfect for this card. I love that the color looks variegated on the twine. I added some Copper bubbles using a stamp from the Timeless Textures set and added a quick Happy Birthday below the "water."
Here's one last shot of my card. I really had fun with this technique. It's so easy to do and gives you a "wow" effect immediately.
Of course I didn't just make one of these gorgeous backgrounds! Here's another card I made starting from the exact same fish and watercolor background as I did with today's card. It's so fun to see the different directions that you can take a card even when you start with the same images. This card was on my blog last week.
