Beautiful leaves with Shimmer White paper

Share |




This was one of the more popular projects from this months Open Stamp Nights, where my Stampers Club gals and anyone else can come to stamp with me.

We used sponging and masking techniques to pull it all together, with the new French Foliage leaves from the Holiday Mini catalogue. The sponging was not only straight on the paper, but also a way we added darker ink directly to the rubber before stamping. Kind of like the Rock & Roll technique, but just using a sponge dauber to be more selective of where you want the darker highlights to be.


See the gorgeous shimmer that the Shimmer paper has? It's one of those subtle effects that just catch your eye in the right light, but the paper has a great weight to stamp and watercolor on -- I love the stuff!

This card is Gorgeous!!!!! I'm so going to CASE it. LOL. The best use of this stamp set that I have seen yet.
 
Love love LOVE this card, but you already knew that as I jumped all over it during the workshop, LOL! Masking is definitely my favourite technique, so that was a bonus, heh.
 
Love it Caroline! You need to make a video showing how you did the masking.
 
This is really beautiful! I made two very similar cards today using your idea, thank you.
