Stamp Focus: Penned Rose

by Svitlana Shayevich

Hello everyone!
Svitlana is here focusing on the new stamps set – Penned Rose.

This stamps set is very versatile and today I will show several different ways it can be used.

Card_20160414_03

The first thing that often come in mind for me in case if outlined stamps – to color them. And this I did for the first card.

The red roses I stamped using Crimson ink and colored with a red  ZIG marker. Altenew inks are not water resistant, but in this case they worked perfectly. As outlined image doesn't deliver much ink to paper, even if there were some ink reaction with water – it mixed with marker pigment giving an interesting effect. As I only have 12 ZIG markers, for pink roses I didn't have the proper color so colored them with a Worn Lipstick Distress Marker (these roses were stamped with Coral Berry ink). I'm not expert in coloring (not even close), but with this rose it was very simple. I added some color in the “beginning” of each petal,  just scribbled with marker, no fancy way of applying color was done here. And then spread the color with water. And repeated the process several times adding more depth to color in spots where shadows are supposed to be ;) Did the same for the leaves, stamping them in Forest Glades ink and colored with Peeled Paint Distress Marker.

Then came the most interesting part. The rose in this set is rather big. And I wanted to have several of them on my card. The fun thing about a rose that even when some petals are removed it's still a rose. So I “removed” some petals by cutting them out and got roses of different sizes (especially I love how the small red one turned out). I hope you agree – they still look like roses.
I cut a curve from white panel, stamped a sentiment from set and adhered all my flowers and leaved to it. Attached the panel to a dark green card base using foam adhesive and added some sequins and clear drops to finish off my card.

For the second card I decided to play with leaves. On a watercolor paper panel I stamped some kind of plant (or succulent … or bush) using Mango Smoothie ink and then colored them using Wild Honey Distress Marker and water. Watercolored background in gray, stamped a sentiment using Mango Smoothie ink and also added some leaves impressions on the top and right side of the panel. Adhered the panel to a card base and added some sequins.

The third card comes with the video. I clear embossed rose background using the rose stamp. I embossed one or two roses at a time. Every time after I stamped the rose next to an embossed one and poured embossing powder over – I removed the powder from the spot where two flowers are overlapping with a brush. It gave me the look as if I masked flowers before stamping the next one.

After embossing was finished – I colored it slightly using some “cream” watercolor paint, just to tint it a bit. Die-cut happy word using Happy die from the background, along with die-cutting the same word several times from scrap cardstock and made a DIY chipboard out of them.
Next I colored the background in rainbow manner using watercolor paints. Adhered the panel to a card base, adhered my DIY happy in its negative space and added the rest of the sentiment, white embossed on a stripes of black cardstock. I used stamps from Halftone Happy set for this. A bunch of sequins of corresponding colors are finishing off my card.

And here is the video

Hope you like my cards and got ideas how this stamps set can be used. I like outline stamps as they can be more versatile. They can be used as is or colored in different manner to achieve different look.
