Better With You stamp set
So many new things are happening at the moment. With the recent catalog launch, Stampin Up is offering some beautiful single stamp sets. The Better With You stamp set is really a fantastic set of images and sentiments and I know you will really like them. When breaking in a new product, I often take just small elements of the stamp set or patterned paper and work them into a simple project. Keeping things inside my comfort zone will help me see new possibilities in the product.
Today’s project is just that… a look at coloring in your comfort zone. From the emails I receive about coloring, many stampers like to watch coloring but are not comfortable with adding color to the image. Let’s try taking a different approach.. keep all of the coloring inside your comfort zone.. whatever that may be. The bird image in this project was stamped and then simple shading was added along the stamped lines using Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers. The end result is a very subtle shadow that helps the bird image to not look flat with not a great deal of coloring.
The frame design is created by making a partial die cut Layering Square Framelit, then sliding the die down the paper and cutting away the remaining area that makes a rectangle. Foam Adhesive Strips are my preferred adhesive in creating this design, as they are so sturdy! This is also a wonder base for creating a shaker card 🙂
