This DIY art project begs the question…is a 6×6″ art frame a card? Or is it a home decor piece? I’d say that if you choose to give the project as a gift, then it’s a card…that becomes a home decor piece. The ultimate in “please keep this special card” messages! The pretty Wonderful Romance stamp set is a great one for this Stamps in the Mail Club project.
I love stamping the floral spray and using Aqua Painters and Classic Ink Pads to add color and shading. The video tutorial includes a speedy section so you can see how I layer the ink colors and use the Aqua Painters to watercolor this gorgeous stamped image.
One of the most common questions I’ve been hearing lately is about which ink pads to use when coloring stamped images. The answer is… it depends.
To decide which ink, you need to first decide what you’re coloring with:
Are you using watercolor tools, like Aqua Painters and Classic Ink Pads? Then you need a Staz-On ink pad, so that your watercolor doesn’t make the ink lines run.
Are you using Stampin’ Blends Markers? Then you’ll want to use the water-based Memento Ink Pad, so that your markers don’t dissolve the ink.
In the video tutorial, I’ll give you a quick reminder on which ink pad to use – so be sure to watch for the tip if you like to learn things by listening 🙂
