As you know, sometimes I just like to try out stamps and see what happens. I recently played with this Pink Persimmon “Mermaid pearls” stamp and coloring it with Distress markers (onto specialty stamping paper)…
Um, but then what to do?! I decided I needed to add some pearls, and make a card of it:
Newsflash: it doesn’t always have to be tricky and you don’t have to re-invent the wheel. You can just play and enjoy. My card background was made by coating with distress stain, flicking with water (drying), and then stamping with another Pink Persimmon stamp in the same color. I also stamped in black the “notes” stamp.
I really like the idea of stamping and coloring a special image and saving it, then later figuring out what project to use it on. So often I can think of a cool idea, or just want to color, but don’t have a finished project in me.
I hope you’ve liked today’s project – here are the supplies used:
Note: the stamps I used today are by Pink Persimmon – and they tell me that they should be in stores and/or available on their site soon.
