This week's challenge was to use spectrum pads on our project. In the past, I've brayered glossy card stock with spectrum pads to make backgrounds, but today I wanted to try something different.
The first card I made was with the Cotton Candy Spectrum pad. It is monochromatic, so I thought I'd make the whole card monochromatic. This card is 4" x 4" square.
This card was super simple to make, but it left me feeling kind of blah.
Stamps: Season of Joy
Ink: Regal Rose, Cotton Candy Spectrum Pad
Paper: Whisper White, Regal Rose, Rose Red
Accessories: Pink Taffetta Ribbon, Stampin' Dimensionals
So, I tried again. This time I pulled out my old Twist spectrum pad. The colors in this pad are Yo yo Yellow, Green Galore, Glorious Green, Ballet Blue, and Lovely Lilac. I stamped the large flourish from Doodle This onto a 4 1/4" by 4 1/4" square white card. Then I stamped two daisies from this set onto scrap card stock and cut them out.
To color in the images, I simply took a clean aquapainter and pulled the colors from the outline of the stamp into the center of each petal. Super simple and it allows you to use your spectrum pads with line stamps. This technique reminded me of those Paint with Water coloring books where you would just wipe the wet paintbrush over the paper and it would color itself in.
To finish the card off, I added a little glitter and popped up the flowers with dimensionals.
