Today I’m joining the Friday Mashup Bloghop celebration of their 200th challenge – where we pick from a list of art concepts/techniques to mash together. And when I mash a lot of things together, I try hard to aim for Clean-and-Simple too; mostly because it’s too easy to overdo a multi-challenge card.
Today’s card is both CAS and one-layer…mashing #21 (Sketch + Dry Embossing) with #71 (Black & White + Bling). I got the idea when I had accidentally stamped with the wrong ink…I thought I had a watercolor-friendly ink, and accidentally used a Copic friendly ink! I decided I’d try doing that deliberately this time.
It was quite the unique challenge to do watercolor flowers in black-and-white only….and I also wanted to mention you might get a similar look to this with distress inks BUT – the Memento will hold up better and keep some of its solid lines. As soon as you hit the distress inks with water it’ll start to break down pretty madly. Fair warning.
Alternate stamp ideas
Since it’s 2021 and this stamp set is no longer available, I’ve assembled a few more ideas of stamps to try:
