Using Outline Stamps Without Intricate Coloring – Waffle Flower Blog Hop + GIVEAWAY!

Happy Thursday, all! Today’s post is part of a blog hop celebrating Waffle Flower’s latest release! I got to play with a few of the new stamps and dies and wanted to show you a way to use outline images without a lot of intricate coloring.

(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).

For the color behind the stamped images, I first painted an ombré or gradient color using my favorite watercolor palette, the Mijello Mission Gold 36 color palette. I used Strathmore cold press watercolor paper.

After the painting, I trimmed down the watercolor paper to a more narrow strip, and then stamped my greeting in the center using VersaMark Ink. I applied some Hero Arts White Embossing Powder, and heat set it. Then I stamped and white embossed nearly every image from Waffle Flower’s Cold Hands stamp set around the greeting area. (This is an awesome way to use lot of cute images all at once).

To accentuate the images, I painted small areas using gold watercolor paint from Kuretake Zig’s Starry Colors palette. Then I mounted the watercolor piece onto a card base made out of Neenah Desert Storm card stock.

I hope you all enjoyed the card! :)
