Welcome to the Stamping Sunday blog hop! You have just arrived in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, and I am Lynsay Mahon. You can see the list of the design team members to hop along with today, by clicking on the blue button:
This month, our team is featuring the bundle “Abstract Impressions.” This bundle is quickly becoming one of my all time favourites! Here you can see more about this beautiful bundle:
I’m a huge fan of the two-step watercolor look that this set provides! Combined with our bright, new colours, the results are stunning.
For my first project, I wanted to showcase the two-step stamping that this set is known for:
I love how combining coordinating colours provides the pop of detail on each of the flowers.
I reached for a framelit outside of the collection which is become my “go to” for detail. It’s called the “Stitched Labels Framelits Dies.”
I used one of the labels to cut our vellum to layer behind the sentiment for a subtle detail and another to give a “faux” cross stitch detail along the top of the layering piece:
For my second project, I wanted to play on the watercolour feel of the images:
To get this watercolour look, I inked the image, then spritzed lightly with water, before I applied it to the Shimmery White Cardstock. I let it dry, then I repeated this process with the second layer of the stamp. I love how it looks like it’s been painted, but it took no effort (or skill) on my part!
Here is the Product List for these projects. If you live in Canada, you may click on the items below to be transferred to my online store to shop for these, and other Stampin’ Up! products.
