Last week I showed you how I "documented' what colours work with my Hero Arts Color Layering Butterflies stamps. And I did the swatches on white card stock.
After looking at them for a bit, I started wondering what if I stamp them on colour card stork or vellum? The possibilities are endless. The color card stock yields a deeper, rich look, the vellum light and airy. And I even tried to stamp on both side of the vellum to see if it look any different.
|A - pink card stock (Ombre Pink, Red Royal, White heat embossed)|
B - vellum (Ombre Pink, Red Royal, Tuxedo Black clear heat embossed)
C - vellum (Unicorn on the backside, Red Royal and Tuxedo Black on the front)
Now I have this stamp image:
And I want to use the butterfly with it. If I ask you to vote, which one would you take? :)
Well I couldn't decide either. So I made three cards. Each with a different color card base and embellished with some sequins. Let's take a look.
Simon Says Stamp stamp (Lovely Spring)
Ranger Distress Ink (Barn Door, Ripe Persimmon, Wild Honey, Milled Lavender, Broken China, Crushed Olive, Peeled Paint, Bundled Sage, Squeezed Lemonade)
Memento Dye Ink (Tuxedo Black)
Clear embossing powder
Memory Box cutting die (Effera Butterfly Wings)
