Social Stamping, Hello!
I hope you are coping with the current life changing events in our world, & I hope crafting is keeping you sane...
A group of Stamping Friends have all put together a blog post, for a Social Stamping Blog Hop,
I have decided I wanted to play with one of the techniques I prepared for my recent technique camps, which used our Pigment Sprinkles (149663)
With this technique, the Sprinkles give both a watercolour effect AND a sprinkle effect to the side, & you achieve this by sprinkling the sprinkles onto the image only, but "spritzing" the image on an angle, so the sprinkles land on the dry side of the card.
I thought I wanted to use a stamp set from the current mini, so I started with Positive Thoughts (151490) but the stamp didn't quite give me the effects I wanted.
You can certainly see the "sprinkles" but I wasn't excited by the watercolour on these flowers.
Next I tried using Honey Bee (151527) with a completely different layout, but again, the flowers weren't really giving me the effect I wanted.
Finally I thought you could have a sneak peak of a new set called Ornate Style, & finally I got the effect I wanted, but the photo doesn't do it justice!
I have use the Granny Apple Green & Gorgeous Grape Pigment sprinkles, & I just LOVE it!
After I had finished, I used some wipes to clean my hands, & my hands looked clean. Then I used some hand sanitizer... Lets just say, I can confirm, I do cover my hands really well with sanitizer, because I suddenly looked like I had pink & purple gloves.
