I had another try with the layering flowers from Hunkydory. I love this stamp set and have used it a few times, in different ways.
With this one I used three layers, three different shades of purple, and used a masking technique to make it look like the leaves are behind the flowers. I even layered the leaves with the stamping – I may be getting the hang of it!! I don’t even think it matters when they don’t line up perfectly. The effect is just as striking, and gives the stamping a hand drawn/coloured and water colour effect.
Stamping in layers definitely depends on the colours, but even some contrasting colours seem to work well – orange with pink etc. I’ll be producing some more attempts at stamp layering using my other Altenew layering stamps if I play over the weekend. It is definitely worth playing around a little. I find the Altenew inks – which come in packs of four, tone on tone – work well.
The base card of purple is from my stash – no idea what make! Sorry! The white card is from Stampin Up. I like their Whisper White card as it stamps beautifully, it cuts beautifully, and even some watercolouring techniques work quite well.
I added a sentiment in one of the same colours of purple, and a trio of sequins – apparently there should be an odd number……in a triangle fashion…..some psychology there – but not sure what!
I will be entering this card into the Crafting With Dragonflies challenge this week, with a challenge of using purple.
