Serene Watercolor

Serene Silhouettes, Stampin' Up!
My computer was running very, v-e-r-y slowly the other day (Comcast gives “high speed internet” a whole new meaning. “You keep using that word.  I do not think it means what you think it means.”)  Anyway, instead of sitting there, tapping my foot and squirming in my chair – like that’s going to make it run faster, right? – I decided to play a little.

I stamped one of the images from Serene Silhouettes several times on Naturals Ivory card stock.  I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink, but if you don’t want a blurry look, use Jet Black StazOn.  I used an Aqua Painter and classic stampin’ pads to add color to the background.

I’m really happy with the way this turned out.  The images did fade a bit, but it adds to the “aged” look.  StazOn will give a more clear image; you can even heat emboss them for even more “pop.”  The colors I used for the background are in the table below.  I didn’t use any green; that’s just “smear” from the black.  Pretty cool, huh?

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

  2. Very Intresting and pretty. I really like the blurred image here, it allows a movement to be happening. I didn’t catch the Princess Bride thing, HOWEVER Comcast high speed….what a joke huh?

      Comcast high speed is definitely a joke!! The Princess Bride reference was, “You keep using that word…” That was an Inigo Montoya comment after Vinzzini’s last, “Inconceivable!”
