#SimpleStamping Saturday Featuring Speedy Recovery. Who says that Speedy Recovery is only for Get Well cards? Certainly not me, as I hope to prove to you today. As ever, I will show you one project made in three slightly different ways from #simplestamping, to stepped up and to stepped up again.
My first version uses just the stamp set, obviously, a Tuxedo Black ink pad, a Basic White Note Card and Envelope and some Watercolour Pencils. All of the pencils I used are from the first set of Watercolour pencils.
I didn’t even blend the colours with a Blender Pen for this project, the areas are small enough that I really don’t think it is necessary as there are so few drawing lines. To me this is a card you would give to a friend who might be going through a bit of a rough time, but vertainly not only if they are under the weather.
Stepped Up Version
To step the card up I stamped the bouquet three times to form a circle around the central point. This time I coloured with our Stampin’ Blends and picked out Pale Papaya and Calypso Coral card for the card base and layer respectively.
So the sentiment fitted on the Stylish Shapes die cut, I inked the stamp up twice, once for each line of the sentiment. Some Pale Papaya Ribbon and the card is done.
Further Stepped Up Version
For my final, most involved, version, I have used the Hive 3D Embossing folder for the Basic White layer, added some Pale Papaya ink with a Blending Brush, before adding the fussy cut bouquets and sentiment.
As well as the ribbon, this time I added some of the 2021-23 InColor Opal Rounds to the card. I think this is my favourite of the 3, but I would love to know which is your favourite. Please let me know in the comments.
