Freshly Brewed Projects - Heartfelt Blooms


Thanks for dropping by. Today we have a Freshly Brewed Projects Blog Hop today that is featuring the gorgeous Heartfelt Blooms stamp set.

This is a free stamp set that you can earn during Sale-A-Bration. It is a new style of stamp that Stampin' Up! have developed called a Distinktive stamp. This type of stamp lays down the ink at different opacities giving the finished image more depth - just ink the surface lightly for a perfect photographic finish.

I wanted to experiment with this stamp today. So I actually have three cards for you today.
The first I used Stampin' Write Markers on. I wanted to see how well this type of stamp took to colouring. I wanted to give the different flowers and the leaves colour.

I think this turned out ok, but I wasn't completely happy with the yellow flowers. So I put my thinking cap on and the next idea was to use sponge daubers to colour the stamp. In the description of the stamp it does say to ink lightly, so I thought perhaps that the daubers might apply less ink than the markers. Overall I was pleased with the effect. It is a much more softer effect and you can see the detail of the stamp more.

Then I decided to get a bit arty farty and try a bit of water. I coloured the stamp up using the Stampin' Write Markers again, but then I quickly ran a Aqua Pen over it. This is a much different effect and definitely less defined, but it still makes for a great card.
