Hello Altenew friends! It’s Virginia here. I am taking this chance to highlight one of those amazing background stamps that Altenew has to offer. There are so many awesome floral-layering stamps, dies and stencils. BUT, what about those abstract-looking stamps? I am sharing two examples with Watercolor Frames Stamp and hopefully, this will post will get you inspired and that you would want to ink up the background stamp right away!
Under the Cherry Blossom Tree Stamp Set
For my first card I combined the stamp set in focus with oldie but goodie To The Moon. I stamped the moon onto Solar White panel using Ocean Waves and Desert Night Crisp Inks. Masked it off and inked the whole panel with Desert Night and Dusk Crisp Inks.
Then I stamped the cherry branch using Espresso, Dark Chocolate and Cotton Candy Crisp Inks and cut it using matching die. I white embossed the sentiment in the bottom part of the panel using Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder.
The branches were foam mounted onto the panel. Which in turn was foam mounted onto a white card base.
I couldn’t make a stamp focus post without devoting one card to embossing. I’m a big embossing enthusiast and new Altenew Embossing Powders are right up my alley. So my second card is made using them.
The sentiment was also white embossed and then the panel was foam mounted onto a white card base.
My last card for today is a watercolor one. I simply stamped several outline branches onto a watercolor panel and color then using my watercolors. Stamped a sentiment using Espresso Crisp Ink and adhered the panel onto a white card base.
I had so much fun playing with this stamp set. It’s very beautiful, the cherry branches are so realistic and layers are so easy to align (as always with Altenew layered stamps).
Have a wonderful day!
