Thanks to all who joined our second stamp release last week! We always love reading your comments and learning which new digital stamp sets are your favorite! Our giveaway winner has been picked… The lucky commenter who won a new stamp set of her choice is: Pamellia. Congratulations! Please use the contact form to claim your prize.
Today I also have a new fun and really easy technique using digital stamps, that gives a black and white image a splash of color and a watercolor effect that only takes a minute to create!
All these cards were made using new stamp sets from our March release: Dear Friend, Dream, and Patience. All three sets include gorgeous floral images that can be customized, so I resized them and printed them at around 10 cm. wide on white cardstock and cut each image to fit an A2 card. Next I sprayed each piece with ink sprays, layering at least two different colors. Tip: I used a regular inkjet printer for these cards so I used a heat gun to dry the ink spray right away to avoid any ink smudging. Still I found that the prints resisted the sprays quite well!
To finish the cards I added a few pearls and rhinestones and mounted the colored layers to coordinating card bases. The splashes of color gave these CAS cards a mixed media touch! Best of all, they are super fast to make and mass produce! It is really an easy way of creating unique cards -and, they are easy to mail too!-.
Hope you found a bit of inspiration today on how to expand your Graciellie Design digital stamps. I invite you to stop by the shop today and get a few of these florals to play with! Remember to subscribe to my blog’s newsletter and to follow me on social media to be the first to know about our giveaways and new products.
I’ll be back soon with more tutorials and a new series that I think you’ll enjoy! Until then, happy crafting.
