SYS2 – Graphic Stamps

Standard

The next lesson in SYS2 is on graphic stamps.  Here is my attempt at Debby Hughes’s card:

This stamp is from the Altenew set Socatoah.    The ink is an Inkadinkado pigment ink stack that I have had for a while. Shades of blue, like this:

I always wanted to do a project where I used all these ink colors together, and this seemed like the perfect opportunity.  In retrospect, I would only use one of the two lightest shades; they’re so close as to make no nevermind between them. Obviously I didn’t use the white ink either.

I added a birthday sentiment — we can all use more birthday cards. It’s from Fresh Squeezed Stamps — it’s the set that has the “You Color my World” sentiment, I found it again.

The little glossy triangles are from Basic Grey. They’re like enamel dots, but — not dots. Enamel shapes, I guess.  That I had them, and in that color, is just one of those happy accidents.

The stamps and the enamel dots — er, shapes — are NBUS.  Happy that this class is helping me dig into my stash.
