I wanted to share this quick and easy card with you today. It was created using Stampin’ Up!’s Butterfly Gala stamp set. In the second card and saying I used sponge daubers to apply the ink to give it a more blended look. The 1st card is just stamping directly on the card with the ink and the second card is using the the sponge technique.
I created a quick video to show you how simple it is to create this fun blended look. I really like the extra dimension it seems to give to the stamped image.
Here’s a close up of the difference between the two different butterfly looks.
This is what it looks like when you stamp directly onto the images without using the sponge daubers.
This is the same image using the sponge daubers to ink up the background stamps for the butterfly rather than stamping directly into the ink. Using this technique I was able to add a little bit of each color to the stamp and kind of blend them. You’ll also notice that the colors aren’t quite as bold and defined using this technique giving it a more subtle feel.
Here’s a close up of the greeting image using the sponge daubers to ink up the stamp.
