Two Techniques in One

Techniques, Stampin' Up!, Occasions CatalogI was playing around with a couple stamping techniques tonight.  The first is the flower panel on the card using the Happy Watercolor set from the Occasions catalog.  I washed Pistachio Pudding, Crushed Curry, Calypso Coral and Bermuda Bay ink refills on an acrylic block, then stamped on watercolor paper.  When it dried, I stamped the flowers and sentiment in Jet Black Stazon ink.

The background layer was a leftover from a workshop several months ago.  I stamped and clear embossed En Franҫais on the panel, then scraped white acrylic paint across it.  It was a little too white, so I sponged some Pistachio Pudding, Calypso Coral and Soft Sued over it to give it a little more color.  It’s funny, because I used this techique with white paint because the Calypso Coral card stock was too dark.  Go figure!

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy.  Have a wonderful day!
