I’ve been excited about using the CrafTangles Happily Ever After stamp set since I got it and so I decided to show how you can give it a totally different look by using a variety of mediums. I think the key is not to be afraid but to have a go!
I’m going to start with my favourite card of the three. It was an idea I had in my head and for a change I was able to execute it as I imagined it.
I stamped the image with a sepia ink as I thought it would give it a sofer look and I then let the pens do the colouring for me! I used a single Chameleon pen and Colour top for the flowers and another pen for the stem and leaves. I stamped the sentiment from the same set and added some pink card to finish.
Next up I used the CrafTangles liquid water colours that I’ve seen my fellow DT members use a lot. I absolutely loved them and they made it so easy to colour in the flower, giving it depth.
I really enjoyed using the water colours, making sure that I used water colour cardstock. It makes the world of difference. I gave it a light blue wash with the water colours for the background. I didn’t think this card needed much more and so I just used a frame die cut.
For my final card I decided to use kraft card and heat embossed the image in white.
I then coloured in the image with Chameleon Pencils and added a sentiment from the same set.
So there you have it – one stamp, three ways! I hope you’ve been inspired to try alcohol pens, coloured pencils and liquid water colours if you haven’t already.
See you again soon!
