Next, I added "Butterfly Confetti" made w/ the Butterfly Duet Punch #148523. I included a pre-addressed, pre-stamped blank card and asked Lily to "make me a butterfly card!" She loves crafts! This was such a fun project to create, and I bet it will deliver SMILES!!

My Meadow by Stampin' Up!

20191220_084244

TIPS for an exquisite sunrise or sunset on hand stamped cards:

   *Use Shimmery White Card Stock #101910 and Sponge Daubers #133773

   *Add saturated color to the card stock by collecting water based ink from an ink pad and SCRUBBING the ink all the way across the card with a dauber.

   *For blended colors for the sky, OVERLAP the colors.

   *Stamp silhouetted images on the finished base with BLACK ink

   *Color in any open areas that should be silhouetted using a water based BLACK marker

   *Layer onto a BLACK card base to pop colors

   *PRACTICE & EXPERIMENT

20191215_111824

Use plenty of ink, loading your dauber multiple times!

20191215_142006

Any highlights, like on this gazebo roof, can be filled in with a black marker to create a true silhouette.

20191220_084229

The NEW My Meadow Stamp Set #151650 is perfect for this technique!

TIPS: lay a Post-It note across the top edge of the wheelbarrow for a mask. Then stamp the images you want inside the wheelbarrow. It is easy! Use the Stamparatus positioning tool #146276 to get a perfectly aligned wheelbarrow every time! It's FAST for making multiples of the same design!!
