Stamp With Us!

This afternoon when blog hopping I saw what the challenge was over on Stamp With Us! A colour challenge perfect for the Spring weather - although here we have had nothing but rain today! So I decided that for this card I would use my Lovely as a Tree set that has been unmounted for many weeks since I bought it! (as usual I am terrible with new stamps and don't mount them until I want to use them - unlike so many other people that I know that cannot wait to get them mounted!)
So I have done something a little bit different for this challenge - I have taken a piece of very vanilla card stock and daubed the background onto the card, using barely banana and pretty in pink. I have then used a piece of sponge and stamped cameo coral underneath this. I then damped the card down a little and blended the colours. For the image I chose the line of trees and stamped this in garden green - to add deeper colour I held the image down for a couple of seconds - this tip really makes a difference to the depth of the colour. After I had stamped the image I used a piece of sponge to add some green to the ground below the trees (when I say sponge I mean I have cut one of my kitchen sponges up - as I wanted different texture than a dauber would give - asda kitchen sponges do the job lol)


  1. Now I wouldn't have gone to this stamp for this challenge but I love how you've made it work. It's given what I think of as a Winter stamp a lovely Spring feel. Thanks for playing along.
