Our Favourite Stamps


Two more of my favourite IndigoBlu stamps for you today. The  background stamp is called Bubbles Background and the A5 stamp set is called Under The Sea


I started with one of my favourite techniques of adding diluted Luscious Powders directly to my background stamp. I spritzed a piece of water colour card and stamped onto it a couple of times to create a full background.


Next I stamped out some of the fish from the set using Black Versafine ink onto a piece of Perfect White Stamping Card. I made sure it was dry before carefully adding colour using the Luscious powders. Remember the stamping card has a coating and doesn't like to get wet, so try not to soak it too much.



Once the fish were dry I cut them out, and ran a coloured pencil around the edge to get rid of any white lines.


I stamped out one of the sentiments from the set and cut that out by hand. Then I spotted this yummy purple card in my stash, it is just the right colour to add a couple of mat's to the project.



To finish off I matted the background and sentiment on to the purple card. Then it was just a case of assembling everything together onto  a C5 white card blank, and adding a few sequins for a little more sparkle, not that you need any more, the Luscious is stunning in real life.

Happy Crafting
