Hello and welcome to my blog: Today I am going to share with you a fun technique that will stretch your stamp collection and allow you to make some fun unexpected cards as well. Sometimes there’s nothing more attractive then a sunset on a cold winter day. Then you add to that a bold graphic figure in silhouette and your heart will start to go pitter pat. There’s just something about those beautiful bold colors in the sky either as the sun is raising or starting to set paired with the dark image in front of it that is just so very striking. That’s exactly what I did for my card today, I brought both of these wonderful things into my card today. Let’s have a look at my project shall we.
Tips & Tricks:
After the sky is nice and blended I can peel off my snow mound masks and start stamping my silhouette images. The most common way of stamping these images are with solid image stamps, but you can do it the way I did today with regular plain stamps. It just adds in an extra step, but what’s one more step to getting a beautiful card, right?
Once I had the penguins stamped out on the card front I then came back and simply colored them in with my Basic Black Stampin’ Blends. Yep, that was all I had to do to get these bold images to appear they were in silhouette. So, What stamps do you already own can you do this technique with to get a new look from your stamp collection? I bet you can think of about 10 sets you haven’t touched in a long time. I highly encourage you to give both of these techniques a try and breath a little new life into your stamp collection. Thanks for dropping by today, I hope that you have a great day and I will see you again tomorrow with this week’s episode of Rick’s Saturday Simple Stamping. Until then Happy Stampin’!
