Pinkfresh Studio Technique Talk blog hop

Hi there!

I'm excited to be joining Pinkfresh for an entire blog hop devoted to showing off stamping techniques.


I went a little old-school and used small floral images to stamp out a full background. Here is my DIY patterned paper:

I used 2 little flower stamps, both from the new Sweet Treats stamp set, to stamp an entire card-front. The 3-flowered-cluster image had little black dots around the flowers, so I used a black pen to add more dots at the end to fill up the space.

I then used copic markers to color in the florals. I used pinks for the larges flower and colored the trio in violet, yellow and a lighter pink. The entire background got colored as well, in a soft blue/grey.

My favorite patterned papers are the ones that look a little vintage. So, to bring a bit of that quality to this paper I shaded the edges with a soft brown ink.

As a final touch, I used the same brown ink and flecked it onto the entire area.

Yeesh! My brush is in bad shape, haha.

I hope you like my little tutorial. It's fun to see what you can do with the smaller stamps in a set! To end off, I added a sentiment from another new set, Bird With Flowers, and some bling by way of a few sequins.
