I’ll admit it; I’m an absolute sucker for hand-painted lettering and typewritten sentiments. I really, really–and I mean REALLY– wanted so many of the things I truly would say on a card in a multi-occasion greeting set.  Got my wish!!! *fist pump* :)

The initial idea of this set was to be able to mimic abstract paintings–I just think they are so beautiful and usable for both feminine and masculine type greetings all on their own–not to mention how they can be used to compliment other stamp sets!

I can’t wait to recreate the “collage” effect above in more of my favorite color schemes and make sets of notecards for holiday gifts!

If you’re intimidated by actually painting on your cards, or trying to achieve the exact same paint stroke consistently every time,  you can totally fake it all the way with this stamp set, LOL!

This made a fab background for this awesome sentiment in Crafty Ladies Say, by Brandi Kincaid!

And, heck, you can use paint strokes to spell a thing or two out! LOL!  I used the little tiny heart die from Oh, Frappé! Die set to punch through the “blob” to make my “O”.  Felt so clever over that one… Hah!

ESSENTIALS BY ELLEN OCTOBER RELEASE HOP – 2

oct 2017 release collage

Yay! You came back! :)  Welcome to Day 2 of the Essentials by Ellen October 2017 release hop!  Today, I’m sharing a project made with:

Thistle overview-je

Essentials by Ellen Clear Stamps, Thistle by Julie Ebersole / Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies, Thistle by Julie Ebersole

 

Thistle-003-je

This look was achieved by just inking up the images with Distress Ink Cubes, misting water on top and stamping onto watercolor paper.  Borrowed the sentiment from the Snailed It set.

After the stamping was dry, I smeared the ink cubes onto my non-stick craft sheet and picked up the color with a wet paint brush and flicked it over top to give it more of an “artsy” look.  LOVE this effect!

Thanks for stopping by today!  I’ll be sharing another on Thursday 10/12 with the new Bear Hugs Die Set!
