When I saw this Pure Innocence Bundles of Love Stamp from MFT Stamps, I knew instantly I needed to use my Karin BrushMarker pens. The girl is carrying pretty posies in a dainty basket and I love that you can add details to her dress. You can celebrate spring with an abundance of color by taking advantage of the opportunities her flowers provide. Or you can pair it up with other sentiments in your stash to create a variety of special occasion cards. The possibilities are endless!
In this process video you can see how easy it is to use the fine-tipped pigment-loaded brushes in intricate areas. You’ll also see how I don’t use more than a little drop of ink. With watercoloring, the number one rule is to allow your water to control the flow of your ink.
So, using the wet-on-wet method, I was able to get beautiful gradation in my colors by using a very little amount of ink.
Once I finished coloring the stamped image, I fussy cut it. I didn’t want anything taking away from the coloring, so decided to turn this into a clean and simple white background card.
I did dry-embossing with the Altenew Mega Rose Stencil on the card panel as well as one of the die cut circles to make a subtle highlight area for the girl. Getting creative with sentiment placement, I used Stitched Ric Rac die cuts as a base. The sentiment “This One is For You” is from MFT’s Cup of Love stamp set.
Bundles of Love is such an apropos name for this stamp set…there are so many little details to love in it ! A sweet little honeybee and trio of sentiments complete this cheery set, so make sure you check it out.
Hope you enjoy the video. As always please let me know if you have any questions.
