Online Card Classes – Stretch Your Stamps 2 – Day 1 – Card 2
Here is my interpretation of Kristina Werner’s example of using background stamps after watercoloring them in class for Day 1 in the Stretch Your Stamps 2 class at Online Card Classes. I used the Penny Black “Retro” background stamp and watercolored it after clear heat embossing. I then highlighted the details of the stamp with a fine brush, thereby adding pops of color. I then used a My Favorite Things die for sentiment and stars. The Happy is from WPlus9 “hello” set. The background stamp on the card base is Impression Obsession stamped with Hero Arts Shadow inks in lemon yellow, lime green, and soft stone. The frame is from a scrap I watercolored previously – never throw away those scraps!
This second card uses the Penny Black base as noted above. I stacked up the black birthday die multiple times, then used wink of stella, which can’t really be appreciated in the scan. Happy sentiment is Clearly Besotted.
I’m looking forward to Day 2 of the Online Card Class, but for now, I’m off to work!
