Can you believe not a one was already in my collection? Yippy!!!!
I pulled out an old Hero Arts shadow stamp and went to work, incorporating the OLS#3 Challenge, Just Add Water.
|Can you believe the intensity of the color of the Calypso pad?|
|Even the Pastel pad has intense color!|
|But Caribbean Sea is my favorite...greens and blues, oh, my!|
I positioned the shadow stamp on the edge of the card, one third of the way up after inking it and spritzing with water. Then, I put each sentiment half-on, half-off the stamped area, and added a triangle of little flower stamps with color-coordinated bling added for a bit of shine.
Easy, fun, and colorful!!!
If you don't have a spectrum ink pad, you could always color a shadow stamp or acrylic block with water-based markers and spritz. If you don't have a shadow stamp, you could improvise your own with, say, a piece of craft foam attached to a block with temporary adhesive. Would the foam give added texture to the image or would enough spritzed water even it out? I challenge someone to give that a try this weekend and share the results!!
Thanks again to Leslie for giving me these glorious inkpads. I assure you, they are well-loved in their new home!!
