Two Tone layered stamping

I took another card making technique class at the Altenew Academy called “All About Layering” and I learnt the best way to stamp my layered stamps. I don’t have many as I prefer just stamping the outline and water-colouring, but the ones I have are not the easiest to stamp together, so this class was really useful.

I used the Vintage Flowers set which comprises of at least 40 different stamps of roses and leaves, and I think I used 35 of those stamps to make this card! I also wanted to add a little more interest to the roses by mixing the colours I stamped with, directly on the stamp, and spritzing water on the stamps after inking them up so that I would get a softer two toned more natural water-coloured look. I made a video to show you how I did it which is at the end of my post.

In this close up pic above, you can see that I mixed blues and purples in each layer of stamping for the roses. I think they look kinda dreamy don’t you? To finish, I mounted the My Favorite Things scallop frame onto foam tape and added a piece of acetate on the top, after I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from Hero Arts with Stazon on the acetate.

As promised the video of the making of, and I hope you enjoy it. There is still no voice over as my voice hasn’t truly come back from its vacation while I was sick. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
