Hi there stampers! Today I am sharing a new technique I learned by watching Dawn from WPlus9 on YouTube a couple weeks ago. She shared an easy way to color your stamped images by using the negative space from the coordinating dies.
I first stamped the images from the stamp set Falling Flowers onto a piece of whisper white cardstock using Archival Basic Black ink. After stamping all the images, I cut the corresponding framelits from a piece of whisper white cardstock keeping the die cuts for another project. I used the negative space of the cardstock as a mask and applied the ink directly over the stamped images using a sponge dauber. This is a great way to color those stamps that do not have coordinating stamps that are meant to color the image.
I colored the images using several of the new In Colors – Dapper Denim, Sweet Sugarplum, Flirty Flamingo, and Peekaboo Peach. The green color is Wild Wasabi. I cut down the stamped and colored panel to 5.5 x 4 inches and adhered a strip of vellum to the front. I then adhered a strip of glimmer paper to the basic black A2 top folding card base and adhered the stamped panel onto the base as well. I cut out the sentiments using the Hello You Thinlits in the same glimmer paper and basic black. I glued the two die cuts together and created a shadow effect by off setting the glimmer die cut on top of the basic black.
To see a video on how to do this technique and make this card, you can watch the video in HD on my YouTube Channel HERE, or watch below:
