The very second I saw these two stamps at the Amsterdam Stampin' Up! event in April I fell in love. These stamps are perfect for a stunning shabby vintage feel... my favourite kind of style. Floral phrases is a superb stamp set with two large statement stamps which will add a huge wow factor to any project or card. Te background stamp named Sheet music is a perfect background for this sam and I shall use int with many others also.
I am having a watercoloring phase at the moment I just can seem to leave my Aqua painters alone. Such a simple technique with fantastically satisfyingly beautiful results. This is set to make any level of card maker feel proud of their work without a doubt.
I used Sahara sand for the sheet music stamp and using ink daubers made the edges and corners appear aged. basic black was then used for the main image. As i used water colour paper I had to ensure there was lots of ink on the stamp , but it is designed to give a mottled, aged, faded type look. I simply coloured over the letters with fresh fig and my aqua painter then moved onto Sweet sugar plumb and old plosive for the flowers.
