Flowering Fields is a pretty little line art stamp set that features flowers from around the world. My concept for this project was to create a set of cards with one layout and four techniques. Clear mount stamps are perfect for this as the entire card can be stamped at once and the layout remains consistent. I started by arranging the stamps on the largest clear acrylic block in a pretty pattern then stamped away!
The first one is simply colored with Stampin' Up markers.
The second one uses the Spotlight technique.
This one uses the new Wink of Stella Gold Glitter Brush Pen to color in the images. It is lovely on Crumb Cake cardstock.
The last is a stepped up version that has two techniques (so I guess there are actually five techniques!) First is a rainbow effect achieved by coloring the stamp with markers. Start with the lightest marker and slightly overlap the colors. Quickly stamp before the ink dries. Then the blue halos are created using a mask from the left over rubber that comes with the stamp set. Pull off the foam layer from the leftover rubber, place the mask over the corresponding flower and sponge Soft Sky ink through the hole.
