I have for you today another installation of the great LOVE IS KINDNESS saga. A few days ago I showed you a card made with this set and colored with the Blendabilities. (a moment of silence here)
I had wanted to use this set for my Easter cards, but wanted another option besides the Blendabilities to "color" the image. Hmmmm. What to do.
All of a sudden, I recalled that I had a little-used set, Work of Art (page 165), that may work nicely to add color to the image.
I stamped the watercolored "blob" in two different colors -- Calypso Coral and Pear Pizzazz -- on top of each other. The intent was that the tulip flowers themselves would be the pinky-orangey color, while the leaves would be the appropriate green. I stamped the tulips over these colorful areas in Black StazOn. While the final result was not exactly as I had envisioned it, I think it works quite well. Do you?
As on the previous card using this set, I stamped the newspaper once again on Naturals Ivory, cut it out, and used my fingernail to pop the top and bottom edges out a bit for the 3-D look after it was glued in place.
Since there are no words on the front of the card, it is possible that this little creation can work for any and all occasions that could arise. And, it's a fairly fast and easy card. With the help of my Big Shot, Framelits and Embossing Folders, it is a cinch to make several of them at one time.
Have any of you used this stamp in other alternative ways?
