I created the background very roughly without worrying about the stripes being straight. The two shades of watercolours I used are Prussian Blue and Bluish Green. I love these colours together, they look so cool and I needed something soothing to look at since it’s getting hotter here day by day!
I stamped all the flowers in the Wild Hibiscus Stamp Sets multiple times on a regular cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black ink. As there is only one leaf in this stamp set, I stamped it repeatedly to increase my leaf count.
I then fussy cut the flowers and leaves. These flowers are easy to fussy cut, I was done in no time.
I popped up all the elements on different levels using foam tape because I really like the dimensional effect it gives. Here is another view showing the dimension:
I then stamped “oh, hello” from the Halftone Hello Stamp Set. It looked like something was missing so I covered my flowers and leaves and added some black paint spatters. I went ahead and added a few (ok, A LOT of) sequins, they matched with my background perfectly.
What a beautiful stamp this Wild Hibiscus Stamp Set is! Man! It looks gorgeous even without colour, as it is. This is one of my favourite stamp sets.
I hope you will try something like this, ink up or watercolour your background, do a whole piece of solid inked background or just stripes like I did and add stark black and white stamped images to it. It creates a beautiful contrast.
That is all for today! Can’t wait to pop back in here again! Have a super fab day.
