Hi and welcome today to my Blog.
To all you lovely people out there that Voted for me a ‘BIG….. THANK YOU’. Because of you and your Votes, today I am taking part in Kylie’s International Blog Highlights Winners Hop.
Daisy Garden by Stampin’ Up! ® is a beautiful large image of daisies…it can be used as a back ground or as a focal point on your card. There is so much detail to this stamp but is very easy to colour using Stanpin’ Blends, Watercolour Pencils or any other colouring technique.
For this card I used the Stampin’ Blends to colour my image, I love colouring with my Blends because of how well they blend and how simple they are to use. The colours I used are – Old Olive Dark & Light, Balmy Blue Dark & Light, Misty Moonlight Light, Daffodil Delight Light, Mango Melody Dark(Deleated), Bronze.
Tips when using Stampin’ Blends
- Use good quality smooth cardstock and the Basic White cardstock is my choice.
- Only use water base inks to stamp your image – Memento Tuxedo Black is perfect.
- Start with the light colour & then add your shading in the dark. After adding your dark colour go over it again with the light shade to blend the 2 colours. My daisies were coloured with the Light Balmy Blue, shading added with the dark Balmy Blue to about half the length of the petal. Misty Moonlight Light was added at the base of the petal then Light Balmy Blue added over the top of all colours to blend them together.
- Always work in small areas at a time. The ink will blend better when the ink is still wet and dries very quickly. I worked on one flower head at a time.
