Happy Saturday and welcome to the Skipping Stones Design March blog hop! We’re sharing tips and techniques featuring SSD stamp sets, so be sure to hop through all the blogs and check out all the inspiration!
Although I’m using a technique that’s not super new, it’s one that I have been loving on lately!
I first embossed the butterflies from Heartsong with white embossing powder onto watercolor cardstock. I then used my Zig watercolor markers to scribble on an acetate sheet, spritzed with water and then smooshed the panel onto the cardstock. I love seeing the colors blend together when you do this!
The sentiment from Everyday Blessings was stamped in Smoky Slate gray ink, between the butterflies.
My tip for you today is to case you own cards! Sometimes when I’m gathering inspiration, I look back at my old cards and like to reinvent them using a new technique or different stamps and colors.
My card today was inspired by this past card:
My variations included the new watercolor technique, but if you look you can see the similarities in embossed butterflies, three butterflies in a row, and the gray color. I also added the sentiment to the card front, but used a different placement on my current card as it balanced better between the butterflies.
I hope you’re feeling inspired to try a new technique, or revisit some of your cards for a fresh and fun look!
