Picture Perfect Stamp Set
It was fabulous to see the Picture Perfect stamp set in Stampin’ Up!’s 2016/17 Annual Catalogue. The stamp set uses the 2 and 3 step stamping process which will create depth to your images.
One of the issues I deal with is: what does the intensity of the ink need to be for each layer. The rule of thumb that I use is: the bolder the stamp, the lighter the colour. So, now, you have to determine which is the bolder stamp. It usually is the one with less design on the stamp or more solid areas.
To make it easy to line up the stamps on top of each other, the Perfect Picture stamp set is clear.
Stamps: Picture Perfect, Flourishing Phrases, Birthday Blooms.
Ink/Markers: Watermelon Wonder, Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach, Soft Suede, Mint Macaron, Crumb Cake, Emerald Envy, VersaMark.
Paper: Whisper White Thick, Whisper White, Watermelon Wonder, Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach.
Accessories: Copper Embossing Powder, Flirty Flamingo 3/8” Ruched Ribbon.
Images are numbered 1, 2, and 3. Therefore, you can determine the bolder image. The rose solid image is stamped in Watermelon Wonder, #2 stamp in Flirty Flamingo and #3 stamp in Peekaboo Peach.
Of course, there is something different with the hummingbird. To give the humming bird an authentic look, use the #4 stamp to give him a throat,
Before layering the humming bird on the card front, the flourish is stamped in VersaMark and embossed with the new Copper Embossing Powder.
