Hello, all! Kristina here. Today I have a quick and easy card for you using outline stamps! Often times we assume we’ll need to color in outline stamps, but there are other ways to use them, too! Sometimes creating a colorful background for the stamps is all they need!
I started out by painting a simple, organic rainbow background with sweeping brush strokes in a diagonal pattern. I used Canson XL Watercolor Paper and the Kuretake Zig Gansai Tambi travel watercolor set.
After the watercolor background was dry, I stamped the outline flowers and stems from the Stronger Together stamp set in clear embossing ink. I applied white embossing powder to the stamped images and heat set it until melted.
The last thing to do was to add a greeting. I stamped one of the greetings from the stamp set in black ink on white cardstock and trimmed out the blocked words. The words were adhered to the card using foam tape.
Super easy! Thanks for stopping by today! Simple watercolor backgrounds like this are great with all sorts of colors, too. Give it a try! :)
