Sprinkles of Life from Stampin' Up!

Stampin' Up! Sprinkles of Life 

I played about with this stamp set and was working on a tree originally, but I didn't like the way it was going so turned the card over and started to play about stamping baskets. I then picked up the apple stamp and slowly this creation came about.  I'm pleased with how it turned out.  With an aqua painter I gently 'moved' colour from the stamped outlines of the baskets and apples to add colour to the inside of the outlines images.  I used a marker pen to colour just one leaf on a stamp that has several from the same set and added some to the stalks of the applies.  Another marker pen was used to colour the stalks.   A sentiment from a new Stampin' Up! set coming and some new old olive ribbon available from 1 June and I was almost there.  I stamped tone on tone onto a pool party card base using the Stampin' Up! Hardwood background stamp and added a matting layer of crumb cake to my apple basket happy accident and my card was complete.  Funny how mistakes or happy accidents take you in directions you never anticipated.

Why don't you have a go at just blending ink from outline stamped images.

More soon
