So we're at the final day of the sneaky peeks for the Uniko Studio April release! All of the products that we've featured from Day 1, Day 2, Day 3 and Day 4 will be available to purchase tomorrow!
Today we're giving you a sneak peek of another gorgeous stamp set and digital paper collection. Both products feature one of my favourite flowers and a variety that's close to my heart: Chrysanthemums. My dad loved Chrysanthemums :)
The digital paper pack is fabulous, (keep your eyes peeled for a project using it tomorrow *wink*) but I really wanted to focus on the stamp set, 'Pure Florals: Chrysanthemum' for today's card. I had such pleasure in inking this set up, and the amazing detail of those stamps begged me to try out a bit of watercolouring thanks to some inspiration a la Debby Hughes :)
- When using a watercolour technique, it really helps to emboss the outline image of the stamp you're using. The raised edge prevents any ink from bleeding outside the lines.
- You don't need watercolour paints to watercolour! Use your acrylic stamping block as your watercolour pallette and your inks as your paint. Tap the ink pad directly on to acrcylic block and mix with a damp paintbrush. The more water you add, the paler the colour.
- There isn't a stem stamp in the set (though there are some beautiful leaves!) so I simply used an Promarker to draw in my stem :)
