S2105 Flowers for You Stamp of the Month for May

The card idea on the left uses a rainbow effect where you stamp the image into a few pads creating an ‘ombre’ look. When I use this technique, I always ink up first in the lightest color, then dip a portion in next deeper color, and the last layer is the deepest color on a portion of the stamp. Always practice on scrap first to get the hang of it. 

Alternately, you could also use reinkers on a wad of baby wipes.  Create stripes of color on the baby wipes that blend into each other a bit.  Then take your image and ink it into your new rainbow striped pad.  Next, stamp image on your paper for your ‘ombre’ rainbow effect.  

In addition to that style, the card on the right uses Oxide ink to create your rainbow of color.  Then splatter with droplets of water (see the watermarks on the card?).  Next, take your image and ink up in a Versamark ink pad and stamp on the card. Lastly, sprinkle the image with white embossing powder and heat set. Just another fun look!

I created this card below by using my leftover lemonade plaid pattern from Eat, Play, Love.  The dovetails are from Hillside Cottage collection.  I used the Circle Shaker 3″ circle thin cut to cut my circle on white daisy.  I inked the complete stamp in Canary ink.  I took the Paprika ink with a sponge dauber and dabbed specific spots on top of the flower stamp (still on the block) to get the orange look.  Then I stamped the complete image on top of the thin cut circle and used a 3 1/4″ cricut cut black cardstock circle as a mat.  I really love how it came out … so soft and muted.
