BLISSful Brushstrokes with Mimi
Our designers have been getting inky with our newest collection of stamps, dies, and stencils—BLISS 2017, now available in our online store! This week they share their tips, techniques, and gorgeous cards featuring our new brushstroke stamps.
Today Micheline “Mimi” is inking up our new brushstroke stamp, 40-536 First Waltz.
We love her bold blooms in red!
Give it a try…
Micheline “Mimi’s” trademark technique for working with brushstroke stamps is to ink the stamp with Distress Inks and Stains, mist with water, and then stamp onto watercolor paper. She then goes back and spreads the colors using a paintbrush and water. She adds additional color and definition from a palette if needed. (Full supplies and instructions linked below.)
And the perfect addition to Mimi’s springtime scene is our new sentiment set, 30-419 Happy Wishes.
These elegant fonts and designs complement all of the new brushstroke stamps and work well for so many occasions.
