Hey everyone – Jennifer here and I am in love with the layering stamp trend right now! Hero Arts has some fabulous layering sets and I couldn’t resist scooping up the bird on a branch – no one else has one like this that I’ve seen.
Better still, they give you the layering directions right on the package! Yay!
Now my first attempt did wind up in the trash as I totally did not think my color choices through before I stamped them. Turns out Passion Fruit+Cornflower Blue+Pool=one ugly bird. Oops. I also mis-stamped the second layer, so for this attempt I found which box had my Misti in it and chose lighter colors – much better!
There’s a pretty birdy! I love the detail you get from the stamps, it’s truly amazing.
The background seemed like it was missing something, so I grabbed my Pool Dauber, some water, and a paint brush to add in some ink splatters.
Dab the dauber onto a non-stick surface (my craft sheet in this case) and then spritz in some water. Drag your brush through it and then tap-tap-tap over your panel.
I wanted simple, so I trimmed the panel slightly to measure 4″x4″ and then mounted it to a 4.25″ square card base made from Mocha layering paper with foam tape. All done!
Now, the Color Layering Bird stamps have been such a hit that they are currently out of stock, but never fear – to get your own set, just hit the “request custom order” button on the left side of the shop and let us know you simply have to have one. Easy peasy! 🙂
