Today I’m sharing one card in two color palettes, featuring Inky Bouquet stamps by Altenew & Distress Spray Stains as the medium!
I love this set because it includes a gorgeous bouquet as well as some fun ink splatter stamps and a variety of beautiful sentiments. I love the ink splats because, to me, they give permission for some messy, inky coloring! I decided to start with white embossing the stamp on two different papers. The first card, with a brighter color palette, was done on watercolor card stock.
I spritzed over the entire image with Saltwater Taffy Distress Spray Stain, then selected a few colors to blend with it for my watercolor painting. You can watch the process on replay of my Facebook Live Crafty Class HERE. For both cards, I tied it all together by adding some stamped splatters in the same ink I used for the sentiment.
As you can see, the second card has a much softer color palette. I used Kitsch Flamingo as my starting place, but the main reason it’s lighter is the paper. This one, a smooth white, absorbed the color more than the watercolor paper.
I did both cards side by side in my Facebook Live and it really helps to demonstrate the difference between them! I encourage you to experiment with different materials in your stash to see how they respond to your techniques.
I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing these two cards side by side! I really had fun making them!
