I am so excited to be a part of this amazing group of Stampin’ Up demonstrators! If you haven’t heard of “The Crew” yet, you are going to be so thrilled with this. We are here to show you the versatility of one stamp set every time we hop (the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month). We have a whole team of people and different stampers participate each time. Like you, we look to find ways to maximize our investments and the single focus on one set allows you to see all the possibilities! This week, our featured stamp is Watercolor Wings. This one is such a beauty and it has so many possibilities!
If you just came over from the wonderful Ann Schach, I’m so glad you are here! If you want to see everyone who is hopping or if you get lost along the way, just click over to The Stamp Review Crew blog.
I have to say that this set has exceeded my already high expectations. I knew that the layering details on the butterfly would be fabulous but wow have I enjoyed playing with the variations. I chose to keep the body of the butterfly all one color (Pink Pirouette) but with the over-stamping of the layers you get these beautiful watercolor details . I stamped the base layer and then the layer with the edge dots. Finally I added the smallest butterfly. These are so easy to layer together because the stamps are photopolymer. The pink ink layering together make this look detailed but still so soft. I added the body and antennae by stamping in Smoky Slate that had been stamped off once. The dotted stamp and the sentiment are from the set too! All of this was done on the new Thick Whisper White Card Stock and put on a base of the same paper. Now for those sequins. Look at the colors in them! There is that bit of pink in the iridescent white. But where did I get them??!!! They are in the Watercolor Wishes Card Kit and I’m crazy in love with them! I spent a couple of days putting the kit together (and I’m notoriously bad about getting whole kits put together) and every single card is awesome. Out of the park awesome! So there you have it…a fun, quick and yet totally special card. The stamp set does all the work!
I hope you like this one. Like you, I can’t wait to see all that the others have for inspiration! Hop on over to Rochelle Blok to continue on your way around. So glad you dropped in today. See you again soon!
